Former Kiss 100 presenter Adelle Onyango has finally revealed why she gave comedian and radio presenter Jalang’o a cold reply after he posted her on his Instagram page.
Onyango had just launched her new Podcast “PursePective” and in a bid to show support, Jalang’o posted it on his Instagram page. But Onyango didn’t like it at all.
Speaking in an interview on NTV, Onyango said that she shooed off Jalang’o because of his stand on Ivy Wangechi’s death.
“You remember the story of Ivy Wangechi? A young girl who was hacked earlier this year which was one of the very many cases of femicide which were talked about in the media,” said Onyango in an interview.
“I remember that time he went to his Instagram page and posted a photo that was written karma and telling women to stop taking money and gifts from men. First and foremost before I go to the issue in that messaging, Ivy had not been buried. Respect to the family first, you know what I mean? You can imagine what they are going through.”
Onyango said she blasted Jalang’o publicly but also had to DM him later on to explain why she believes he’s toxic.
“Femicide is a reality many women in the world are dealing with so we cannot say its karma. So for me when it comes to PursePective it’s a safe space where people need to unlearn certain truths that are extremely toxic, truths that justify murder. No! It’s a matter of life and death its not a PR thing, we cannot move along like its normal for women to be killed.” Added Onyango.
After Wangechi’s death in April this year, with emotions flying high, Jalango took to social media to ask ladies to be ready to pay the price whenever they take money from men.
“Too many young beautiful girls are dying some of the saddest deaths you can’t wish for someone’s daughter,” posted the radio presenter who was forced to delete it and apologize later on.
“So my sister before you take any money from any man just ask them what they want in return and if you can’t offer what they want, RETURN IT! SIMPLE DO NOT PROMISE WHAT YOU CAN’T DELIVER! People work soo hard for their money my sister! Do not exchange lies for a man’s hard-earned money!”
