Chicago Popped Out TO Celebrate Dometi Pongo’s “True Life Crime” DEBUT

MTV’s new investigation series, “True Life Crime” premiered on the network for all to see on January 8th, 2019. The show is an eight-episode docu-series that is hosted by Chicago’s very own, Dometi Pongo.

Chicago gathered for the premiere of the show on Monday, January 6th. The Specially invited guests were able to get a first look at the show as it investigates the death of Kenneka Jenkins.

Jenkins was found dead in a freezer in a Rosemont hotel in October of 2017. The 19-year old’s death created waves on the internet, causing many to believe the death was a calculated murder, although the case has been ruled as an accident. After the screening of the show, WGCI’s Kyle Santilian did a Q&A with Dometi. The audience got to learn the process behind producing the series and that episode in particular.

Kenneka Jenkins Friend Irene Roberts Breaks Her Silence Interview With Zack TV

The first episode was a real tear-jerker, as it included the late ZackTV. In the episode we see Zack conducting interviews with the friends of Kenneka Jenkins. Zack was also the only one to get an interview with Irene, the friend of Jenkins whose Facebook live video was the source for many conspiracy theorists.

Dometi broke down the importance of having Zack in the first episode, stating that their work in journalism may have been different, but the awareness they created was more alike than anything.

Chicagoans Ja’mal Green and Englewood Barbie also gave their thoughts on the case in the episode.

Dometi received much respect from his peers and the city as a whole with the release of his new series. He has given the city something more to stand on other than our music scene. Dometi has worked with WGN and WVON, he has received many accolades for his work as a journalist.

Make sure you catch “True Life Crime” on Wednesdays at 8 pm Central time on MTV.
