Dropping out of school
Sometimes back, the funnyman revealed the reasons why he dropped out of school.
Hailing from a humble family background in Mombasa’s Makindu where poverty was the order of the day, lack of school fees forced me to taste unremorseful street life in Nairobi’s Saika estate for a period of three years at a tender age of 12.
This was upon Completing Class Eight in 2004.
During the time I experienced the vagaries of street life during which I not only worked as an errand boy who ferried vegetables among other goodies to and from the Gikomba market, but I occasionally sniffed glue, smoked Shada, pick-pocketed and mugged people- all in the name of survival.
Other hardships ranged from hunger, negligence, lack of education to mistreatment by indifferent members of the public.
Despite his agonizing up bring, MCA Tricky did not let his past determine his future and his story is an inspiration to many.
