“Recently they came to my place and said that this Wajackoyah, why don’t we just pay him Ksh.200 million so that he can drop his bid,” Wajackoyah said in a viral video
“I looked at them and told them that I am the most learned man in Africa and I cannot be compromised. I have worked in higher places like the United Kingdom and I can never betray the cause of young people,” Wajackoyah said.

As earlier reported on GOTTA.news, Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK) boss Ezekiel Mutua noted that Wajackoyah is a force to reckon with, adding that he will garner more than 1 million votes in the forthcoming elections.
Mutua made his argument after engaging wananchi on their preferred presidential candidate.
“It may sound crazy, but Wajackoyah will cause a re-run. I sat down with a group of young people last night and was shocked to hear the animated conversation on why they love the guy
“If the talks are anything to go by, he will get over 1m votes and that will be a game-changer!” Mutua wrote.
