MC Jessy explains Meru fury stereotype
Each community in Kenya has a stereotype attached to it, and when it comes to Merus, it’s fury.
Watch any of Kenya’s standup comedy acts, and the hot tempered Meru will always feature alongside the braggadocious Luo, the money-minded Kikuyu and the sluggish Swahili.
Speaking at Citizen’s TV morning show, Power Breakfast, MC Jessy, who is a renowned Kenyan comedian, pointed out that the Merus are not always furious – they just tend to be very protective.
“Let me tell you we Merus know ourselves very well. You cannot come and force me to do what I do not like. We always tell it as it is; we like things when they are straight forward,” the comedian said.
However, touching on matters to do with relationships, the funnyman, whose real name is Jasper Muthomi, says Meru men like women who are resolute.
“Being my girlfriend we have to talk and agree on how to take this relationship. Now if you start diverting from what we talked about while still in the relationship, it is just best for you to get out of it immediately. Kama unaenda nje enda kabisa and don’t come back. We need to focus on the real deal,” he said.
