In a recent interview with digital creators, Arocho explained that his departure was driven by the need for growth and new challenges. He emphasized the importance of seeking growth in life, stating that staying in one place for too long leads to redundancy.

Although he did not disclose his exact salary, he mentioned that it was above half a million, putting it between Sh500,000 and Sh1 million. Arocho was pleased with the increase in his earnings, which he believed reflected his hard work and dedication.
