Fortunes have changed for Tahidi High actor Joseph Kinuthia Kamau alias Omosh after his heartwrenching story of sinking into financial debt and depression touched Kenyans.

Omosh’s story got well-wishers donating to his cause, so much so that he received more than he needed.

More than Ksh 1m was raised to aid him and his family.

Speaking about it, Omosh assured Kenyans that he will make good use of the money. Part of which was to build a home for himself and the family at the piece of land he was gifted in Malaa.

Omosh detailed where he will use the rest of the cash.

“HAPA NI KUOMBA GOD AKUPATIE THE RIGHT THING AND THE RIGHT THING IS WHAT I LIKE DOING THE BEST, THAT’S ACTING. AND THE FILM INDUSTRY IS OPENING UP KIDOGO… I WILL BE DOING SOME SHORT SKITS AND POSTING THEM ON YOUTUBE. SO I WILL BE DOING WHAT I LOVE THE MOST, AS THEY SAY ALWAYS INVEST IN WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO THE MOST.”

Omosh also highlighted how his issues would keep him up at night. One time he spent 48 hours without sleeping a wink.

“SIJAHI KUWA NA MENTAL ISSUES BUT THERE IS A TIME I WAS GOING CRAZY, THINGS WERE HARD FOR ME, THE HOUSE HAD NOTHING. I STAYED FOR 48 HOURS WITHOUT FALLING ASLEEP JUU TU YA ZILE MASHIDA NILIKUWA NAZO…KUAMKA UNAAMKA MAPEMA LAKINI HAKUNA MAHALI UNAENDA FOR A YEAR.”

Adding,

“NILIKUWA NIMEFIKA KWA CORNER, IKABIDII NIPIGE NDURU, AND YOU GUYS CAME ALONG AND HELPED ME BIG. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO THANK YOU, GUYS. I DIDN’T KNOW I HAD SO MANY FRIENDS… WHAT I CAN SAY NI SHUKRAN SANA AND MAY GOD REWARD YOU GUYS.

Omosh continued,

“…ILIKUWA INAFIKA SAA ZINGINE JIONI, NAPIGA MAGOTI NAAMBIA GOD, ‘KWANI ILIKUWA NIISHE HIVI?’, LAKINI GOD NAYE AKACOME THROUGH. SAA ZILE UNAFIKIRIA IT’S OVER, KUMBE THAT’S THE START,” HE SAID.
