A few days ago, Njomo, who co-host Kuihuria show on Inooro FM with Jeremiah Kimani alias Referee Mwenyewe, took to social media to plead with his friends and fans to give him financial support to give his father a well deserved send-off.
He noted his father was also a comedian in his own way, proving a fruit does not fall far away from the tree as Njomo has really mastered the art of comedy.
