I want to assure my future na watoi wangu (my children). My ideal 40s would be spent somewhere deep in a ranch milking cows because at the end of the day, why do we live?” he posed.
Njugush said he wants a chance to enjoy life in the best way he knows how together with his family. “I want to be the greatest content creator and do wonders, then what next? I want to live a bit.
