Joho turned 45 years older and spent millions on the lavish party which drew celebrities from different sectors, government and entertainment. His close friends were in attendance too.
Kiss FM presenter and comedian, Felix Odiwour (Jalang’o) was the emcee at the event. Jalang’o and Joho enjoy a relationship that spans a decade.
Other notable celebrities were musicians Nviiri the Storyteller, Masauti and Bensoul.
“Thank you all for the birthday wishes and prayers,” Joho tweeted, keeping it brief and precise, unlike his previous birthdays where he would share details of the event.
His closest allies said that he changed his lifestyle and is leaning more towards privacy after he announced his presidential ambitions.
“I will run for the seat and no one will oppose me. Even we from the Coast are entitled to the seat.
“We have supported others for a long time, and it is time for them to support us too. It cannot be that we support them every other time,” Joho said.
Joho’s guests jammed to new hits like Nairobi by Bensoul and also played a few team bonding games as they enjoyed the night.
The event was also invite-only as Joho wanted the attendees to strictly observe Covid-19 regulations. Joho cut a cake and ate dinner with his guests before they departed, minutes to curfew time.
“Happy birthday Joho,” Citizen TV power couples Rashid Abdalla and Lulu Hassan led Kenyans and other celebrities in wishing Joho a prosperous year.
“Happy birthday Joho. I support your quest to lead Kenya and the coastal region. Continue empowering our kids through 21st-century innovations,” Umoja Finest prayed.
Joho also celebrated getting 1 million followers on Instagram.
