Aron Asiiba Matendechere, the man behind nitakufinya viral video, has revealed that he is currently a father of nine children.
Speaking to K24 TV on Saturday, Matendechere explained more about himself revealing that he is also a husband of two wives.
“I have two wives and nine kids”, he told K24 TV as he introduced one of his wives and his two sons to the public. His family is evidently happy about the viral video.
“My family is happy about my fame, but I have not benefitted from it,” Matende said.
His wife, Olpha Moraa, said she is happy about her husband’s instant fame and that she has been camping on social media to see how people are reacting to the video.
“I have been on the internet the whole night to see what people are saying about the video. But there are people who are using it badly,” Moraa said.
In the viral video shot by K24 TV in 2013, Asiiba, who currently runs a salon-cum barber shop business, is seen warning a man, who was being interviewed by the news channel over electricity crisis in Nairobi’s Mukuru Kwa Njenga slum.
“Asiongee mambo ya stima, aongee mambo ingine. Mambo ya stima wachia watu wa stima waongee. Ongea unataka serikali akupee kazi (Stop talking about electricity matters. Let the people involved speak about it. Ask the government to give you a job),” Asiiba is heard telling Musyoka before he (Musyoka) retorted saying ‘mimi niko na kazi‘ (I have a job).
Asiiba then walked away saying ‘nitakufinya’ (I will squeeze you) to which Musyoka responded ‘finya!’ (squeeze!).
Asiiba has since disclosed that the guy he was interrupting during that live TV interview is known as Charles Musyoka. He says he and Musyoka were good friends and are still good friends to date.
He says they still live in Mukuru kwa Njenga where the viral video was shot.
“I know him. He is my good friend, only that I was not happy about what he was telling the media that day,” he said.
He further disclosed that Musyoka was not electrocuted as he claimed in the video.
“Musyoka got injured while working in a certain company in Industrial Area. He was lying that he was electrocuted. That is why I intervened,” Asiiba revealed.
