5 Kenyan celebrities who used to be househelps (Photos)

They came from rags to riches.

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

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

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

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

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.
