Pascalino Lpesinoi Lenguro Tokodi – try saying that fast – better known as Pascal Tokodi, is the talk of town with his latest single Sitaki which has recently been topping chats.
At 23 years old, Pascal says he is just getting started. He took out time while shooting his latest TV show to chat with us.
Tell us about yourself
I’m an artist and a singer; will be turning 23 years in a few days. I have a big family like a football team even with substitutes. I’m the second born. I spent my childhood in Rongai and went to school in St Mary’s before joining Lenana High School.
After high school it’s just been lessons here and there and in 2012 immediately I got my first acting gig in a TV show called Makutano Junction.
Is Tokodi your real name and does it mean anything?
No idea, my uncle gave it to me when I was born; to me it means superman, warrior or someone amazing. So such a long name like Pascalino Lpesinoi Lenguro Tokodi is difficult for a
lot of people to remember and pronounce.
Did you start singing and acting from a young age
In primary school singing was just for the ladies, but in high school, drama became more serious.
I joined drama club when I was admitted to Lenana School and it taught me a lot.
