End of Machachari

Earlier speaking to Eve Mungai, the brothers currently staying in Mwihoko, Ruiru, said they were at a loss after the abrupt end of the show.

They planned on starting another show with their former castmates but the pandemic halted their plans.

The duo said that their earnings from Machachari are what supported their family and they had no savings.

“Our mother was sick and could not work. The money paid fees for us and our sister, rent, catered for food among other bills,” they said.

Twins face disrespect

The twins said that their supposed friends started showing their true colours after they exited the show.

“Not everyone around you has good intentions, some of them wanted to take advantage of us,” said Muthuri.

Muthure noted that they realised their only true friends were those with whom they featured on the show, including Baha and Govi.

Speaking to TUKO.co.ke, Muthure encouraged other struggling artistes not to give up but also know their worth.

“Do not let anyone take advantage of you simply because you are in need.”
