In the Nairobi News article titled, ‘Comedian Obinna replaces Jalang’o at Kiss FM’, the writer goes out of his way to lie about the roots of one comedian going by the name Obinna Ike.
Nairobi News writes, “Obinna, born Obinna Ike, was confirmed for the role at the weekend. He is set to work alongside radio queen Kamene Goro as a replacement for Jalang’o aka Heavy J, real name Felix Odiwuor who recently quit to join politics“.
They insist, “A father of three who boasts Nigerian roots, Obinna is a renowned media personality with experience in radio and TV“.
Cnyakundi.com always sets the record straight, Obinna is not a Nigerian and doesn’t have Nigerian roots.
Obinna, born Stephen Magana is from Karateng’ Kisumu County.
Lies as told by the media have a ripple effect on the morality of a county.
Whereas other artistes like for example, Nonnini would be introduced as, ‘born Hubert Nakitare’, or Nameless as, ‘David Mathenge’, why would Obinna be any different, he is already formidable and successful in what he does?
