He however remained guarded on the constituency he is eyeing, explaining that declaring the same as early as now could see the constituents overwhelm him with calls and requests for assistance.

“I want to start with MP. I don’t want to disclose. I don’t want people to panic saa hii. You know when people hear Bughaa anataka Mp, and then also sitaki kutoa pesa ya matanga. So if I declare it is a certain place, na hao watu wa mahali hio wako na number yangu, sasa they will make it my personal business.”

“Of course. I normally tell people there is no a rich man who is stupid. They always know what they are doing. It’s only that they cannot tell you exactly that this is the agenda because you see it’s a puzzle, you have to know from this year, to next year I’m gonna be doing this. Then from next year to the other year I’m gonna be doing this.” Explained the musician.
