Speaking on comedian Jalang’o’s YouTube show Bonga na Jalas, Dela said the highest amount that he has ever collected in a single night during the online show was Sh700,000.
He added that the Money had benefited talented individuals who appeared in his said show.
While talking to Jalango, Dela explained how the controversial show started. Dela insisted that ‘Club COVID’ was started to help talented artistes who lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic;
“How Club COVID started a lot of entertainers lost business, events zilianguka, video vixens, dancers talented people wasanii they all lost their jobs, I know these people and there is nothing as painful as someone calling you in the morning anakwambia umsaidie tuu na 100 shillings juu hajakula the previous day,”
“And I kid you not the first time I started I did not think it was going to be this huge. Mimi nilianzisha show nikaambia watu, okay guys I have these talented guys over here so whatever you want to send them just send. People then started coming out, kiujinga it started growing. There is something about Kenyans and appreciating talent. People started sending more Money, someone even sent Sh100,000,”
Xtian appreciated Kenyans for the support.
