Radio Presenter Felix Odiwuo alias “Jalang’o” has finally come out clean on the controversial Boys Club WhatsApp screengrabs which have been circulating online.
Through a lengthy Instagram post, the former Churchill Show comedian noted that the past few days have not been easy for him and his friends since the story broke out and the drama began on social media.
He went on to explain that the WhatsApp group had been around for years, adding that it’s intended purpose is different from what has been portrayed by tabloids.
The Milele FM presenter claimed that their main goal when creating the group was spreading positivity and discussing meaningful ideas that would bring development among members of his circle.
Jalang’o insists that the conversations were not in any way trying to objectify women and blames bloggers for twisting and pushing a different narrative which suggests so.
“Yes we agree that it was our group and it has been there for soo many years and through it, we have achieved a lot in developing ourselves in different fields more so investing, which was the sole reason for it. The boys are not just friends but people we grew up with from childhood, went to school together, and achieved a lot together,” read part of his post.
The father of two also rubbished earlier reports that he had been suspended from work as a result of the scandal that seen even prominent entertainers such as Ted Josiah condemn him for supposed abuse of privilege.
He also denied being part of the leaked sex tape that is going viral as being from the apartment, and that none of his friends is part of it.
“I have not been sent to any compulsory leave, my two weeks annual leave began last week and I’ll be back on radio in two weeks. There are videos going around, I can assure you none of them is us and it’s a lie that we created the group to share women amongst us, that’s a lie. That day we were having random boys chat and that’s how the photos you see came up,” he said.
Jalang’o went on to accuse Blogger Edgar Obare of holding an ill motive against him, recalling that the two have clashed before.
He mentioned that the damage he (Obare) had caused them is irreparable and that homes have been broken from his act, but together with his friends, Jalang’o will not sue him.
“What does it benefit you when you do all this? The damage you’ve caused us can never be repaired Edgar and I assure you that were it that I was a bad person this would not have ended well. We will not sue you or follow on anything and we will just let this pass but you’ve broken families. We have lost businesses and top clients who have pulled out on us. It is ok and we understand them, no one would want to be around us now,” Jalang’o told Edgar.
Jalang’o finished off by saying that he had lost businesses from many clients, but he will take it as a lesson, as he also asked for forgiveness for anyone that they have offended.
Below is PART ONE and TWO of Jalang’o’s lengthy confession.

The past two days have been very rough for me and my close friends because of the chats from our wassp group, yes we agree that it was our group and its a group that has been there for soo many years and through the group we have achieved alot in developing ourselves in different fields more so investment which was the sole reason for the group. The boys are not just friends but people we grew up with from childhood,went to school together and achived alot together. On the chats youve seen , no one will tell you the genesis of the chats or the previous chats but they picked what they wanted you to see, we have been judged, abused and crucified and told that we formed a boys group just to have our pleasures. We will not defend ourselves but this was just another random boys chat in a wassp group, the difference between us and you is that your chats havent leaked out but I can assure you that in most wassp groups chats about men,women, money can never miss. People have blown this out of proportion and I can assure you we are totally broken. I have had people call me to encourage me and the boys and others calling to just condem us, we have taken this as a lesson. There is alot of malice and hate around it but we cant go there now. What really happened? Or whatx the truth? When Covid happen most of my friends closed office and I requested them to come help me build my YouTube channel, we took one of our appointments and turned into a fully fledged studio and thats where we have been shooting,occasionally we go to where our guest is or hire a place to work depending on guest request , we are always done by 2 or 3pm so we sit back and just relax have a boys time and chat, few friends have joined us too. We went a created one of the biggest online platforms and we already had clients buying space for marketing and advertising and we were already on a roll gaining upto 10k subscribers per week! Rarely did anyone sleep at the apartment unless we had an overnight shoot or editing going on! The lies are too many that we ourselves are reading this things on the blogs and just wondering whom they are talking about.

PART 2 The lies are too many that we ourselves are reading this things on the blogs and just wondering whom they are talking about. 1. I have not been sent to any compulsory leave, my 2 weeks annual leave began last week and ill be back on radio in 2 weeks 2. There are videos going around , i can assure you none of them is us. 3. That we created the group to share women amongst us, thats a lie. That day we were having a random boys chat and thats how the photos you see came up. It is very evident that the blogger has alot against me. He started last year when he said we paid girls to come to our event, that story died when one of the girls dismissed him, he then again struck in December last year , when i questioned him he blocked me and claimed that I wanted to kill him, he has since blocked me and continues to publish my stories all the time, My friends send me screen shots from his chats, he reffers to me as that married man he doesnt like….this year he tried to write another story from Alex birthday party but since he had nothing to write he let the story die. On my birthday he threatened to block anyone who posted me on their time line, and now even without asking our side he has gone ahead and had a field day, he is happy because he gets what he wants, Clout! Nothing else. What does it benefit you when you do all this ? The damage youve cause us can never be repaired Edgar and I assure you that were it that I was a bad person this would not have ended well, we will not sue or try to follow on anything and we will just let this pass but youve broken families, we have lost bussiness and top clients who have pulled out on us, it is ok and we understand them, no one would want to be around us now. We thank clients and friends who have stood by us by seeking to know the truth first. The truth will set us free someday for now all we have to do is try and put our heads up above this storm hoping it will soon pass. Moving forward, we have learnt alot from this, we accept our mistakes and ask for forgiveness to anyone we offended, we ask for your prayers and guidance. Meanwhile The show goes on! God bless you.
