5 celebrities who came from rugs to riches



Akothee is now Madam Boss (Instagram)

Househelps are some of the most mistreated workers in Kenyan society.

However, these celebrities are living proof that you shouldn’t look down on someone simply because they are doing menial jobs because you never know how life will eventually play out.

Without further ado, here are 5 Kenyan celebrities who used to be househelps:

1. Jalang’o

Jalas (Instagram)

 

The MCee and Radio personality served as a houseboy for some time at his rich uncle’s home in Lavington. This was after leaving a job as a fisherman in his hometown of Homa Bay.

2. Nyota Ndogo

Before she was famous, Nyota was a househelp. But with the help of a Good Samaritan named Andrew, Nyota became the big star she is today. Andrew is the man who gave her the name ’Nyota’ when she was still a househelp, recorded her first album, introduced her to the who-is-who in the entertainment industry and often asked her employer for permission so that Nyota could go out and perform when she was still a househelp.

Nyota believes that were it not for the late Andrew she would still be a housegirl.

3. Willy Paul

Pozze (Instagram)

 

The ‘Sitolia’ singer was turned into a houseboy by someone who offered to help him because he did not have a place to go to after his father’s burial upcountry.

The singer disclosed when he came back to Nairobi with his mother, they had no home to go to so they had to go their separate ways and this led to Willy ending up as a houseboy.

4. Akothee

Madam Boss (Instagram)

After eloping with her high school sweetheart, Akothee lived at her in-law’s house for 7 long years serving as a househelp. Her stay at their home came to an end after her marriage crumbled and they sent her packing.

5. Nice Wanjeri

Auntie Boss (Instagram)

 

Nice plays Shiru the hilarious house girl on ‘Auntie Boss’ who leaves her uptight employer Vanessa with a headache.

As it turns out, Shiru has actually been a househelp in real life. When she finished high school she worked as a housegirl at her cousin’s house. In return, her cousin paid for her computer packages.

Akothee reveals shocking details about her relatives!

Singer Akothee blames her relatives for her recent breakdowns and fatigue.


Hours after her manager Nelly Oaks announced that she was bedridden due to fatigue, the singer has re-emerged on social media to explain why her relatives are the reason why she's been in a hospital bed for the fourth time in just seven months.


"It's not the platform to share my pain, but it's also good to share some life experiences," said the singer on Instagram before pouring her heart out in a long post cursing her extended family.


"I promised myself never to live with relatives after so many disappointments, but hey I am human too, so 3 years ago, I decided to live with one of my cousins and a son of my neighbor whom I educated without any difficulty of school fees. When results came, none of them wanted to share with me, they had failed terribly! But hey its fine, failure in education is not failure in life."


Akothee, who was too fatigued last week that she had to cancel a scheduled show in the US, went on to lament how relatives have been stealing from her despite her wholehearted dedication to help them in life.


"I remember in February I asked them to leave my home! Because all the employees complained about them. But where do we take orphans to. I have weak heart so I gave them a 2nd chance! Which has left me in pain," said Akothee complaining about her two relatives who have been vandalizing her farm in Rongo in all kind of manner and abusing her employee,Good morning, due to public demand, first I apologize for all our fans in NYC, sorry we couldn't make it past the airport as our vibrant lady got energy burn out, she had difficulties a few days before the travel but we still had Hope we were going to make it, till hell broke loose at the airport . We sincerely appreciate your support and we shall make it up to you NEWYORK @oneafrica_musicfest Thank you all for your concern. Be blessed” shared

Following the information given by her Manager, The Oyoyo singer has now shed more light on what she has been going through.

She added that; “There is no man who gave me an idea of building a home in the village, I looked at my situation as a single mother ! I realised I was all by myself in this world , and all I needed is a safe landing with my baggage ! I never wanted my family to run around with my coffin, begging my exes to provide land to bury me nor ran from one cemetery to the other ! I never wanted my children to leave in fear of not knowing where to go to once I am 6 feet under ! I never saw anyone being there for my children once I am gone! I could climb any mountain to see my children happy !”

Living the best Life

“To my surprise, my children are the ones living the best life and are still very disciplined! They have never made me shed a tear of dissatisfaction or disappointment! My kids even consult with me when they need to buy something expensive " maaam! How are you! I was asking , I saw a weave going for 40k! could you get me one when you are in spending mood ? This makes me happy ! So why are peoples children sending me to hospitals? Why am I working extremely hard for ungreatful people! Why am I saaaad for the pregnancy and the labour pains that I dint bare ! Why are relatives causing me so much pain! Is it because I am stupid ?”

What president did to Nicholas Betts family

dailyactive.info



Deputy President William Ruto led a host of political leaders and sportsmen especially athletes in bidding farewell to former world 400m hurdles champion Nicholas Bett.

Bett was buried at his Simat home in Uasin Gishu county. Ruto said he had been sent by President Kenyatta to deliver condolences to the family.

The 28-year-old died in an accident near Lessos in Nandi county a week ago. Bett, who was a police officer, was buried with full honours of a 21-gun salute.

“We join the entire sporting fraternity globally in celebrating the life of our brother Bett. We bring our condolences and sympathies because we have lost not just a person from this county but a national athlete and an international citizen,” the DP said.

He said Bett made the country proud as a police officer and was also a patriot and a gallant athlete for the country.

Ruto said in 2013, an insurance scheme had been set up for police officers who die while on duty.

He said the insurance scheme would give Bett’s family Sh2 million and the President had also sent him with an additional Sh2 million to start a bursary kitty for Bett’s children.

The DP described Bett as a national hero, who would always be remembered.

Sports CS Rashid Echesa said at the Thursday ceremony that Bett had died a hero.

“Bett, we will celebrate you always as Kenyans even in death. For the athletes, I know it’s painful for you because I know what you go through to fly our flag as a nation like he did.”

Echesa said the ministry was finalising a plan on how all athletics heroes including those who are deceased would be celebrated.

“God gives and takes. We loved our brother Bett but God loved him more and we pray that his soul rests in eternal peace,” the CS said.

The Sports minister said he had met Bett during the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australian and noticed that he was passionate about improving athletics.

Lands CS Faridah Karoney said Bett and other athletes had done the country and the police force proud.

“To the family, we say sorry for the loss of Bett and we will always remember him,” Karoney said.
