Flaqo Raz family & Siblings

Flaqo is the eldest of three siblings, which means he has two younger siblings, a brother and a sister. His immediate family members are well aware of his serious moments and lighthearted moments.

Flaqo Education Background

Flaqo attended Xaverian Primary School before pursuing his schooling at St. Mary’s High School. He later attended Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology (JOOUST), where he earned a degree in Public Health in 2018.

The Kenyan comedian feels that God only wanted him to have the documents before opening doors in the Kenyan entertainment industry. He was a quiet boy in school, and no one, not even himself, expected him to make a name for himself in Kenya’s entertainment scene.

Flaqo Music

Most people are unaware that Flaqo was a vocalist long before he began performing comic sketches. He began as an R&B artist but struggled to break through owing to competition. He then started to hunt for a way to stand apart, which is where comedy comes in. August Alsina, whose songs include Soul Cry, Hold You Down, and Make It Home, is his favorite R&B singer. Flaqo claims to know all of his songs by heart.

A fan once said that his music was rubbish when he released his love ballad Regrets.

“I enjoy your comedy skits, but the music is terrible,” said kingsleymartinjr.

Flaqo clapped back, adding that he no longer worries about such remarks.

Flaqo Comedy Background

When it proved difficult for Flaqo to break into the Kenyan music scene, he turned to comedy. Flaqo used to watch Vines before he started comedy, long before the app was removed.

He began making videos on his cheap phone, changing personalities and imitating Kenny Knox, Dope Island, and others. He would then publish the films on social media networks such as WhatsApp, and people he knew thought he was insane, which demotivated him. He subsequently resorted to watching YouTube videos to understand more.

As he was still experimenting, he decided to sneak in and make a little video when his mother was out grocery shopping one day in August 2018. He filmed it from a script featuring Khaligraph Jones praying. After he posted it, it quickly became his first viral video, which was extensively shared on sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp. The videos, which were previously shared largely in his hometown of Kisumu, spread throughout Kenya and beyond. In just two days, this video gained 10,000 views.
