We rounded up some Kenyan celebrities who have pursued courses that many people consider difficult.
To start us off is ;
1. Polycarp Otieno
Polycarp aka Fancy Fingers knows how to do a lot more than strum and pluck a guitar. The Sauti Sol guitarist graduated from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology with a degree in Actuarial Science.
2. Sanaipei Tande
The sultry singer is not only sexy but smart too. She is a trained Pharmacist from the Kenya Medical Training College.

The ‘Volyuum’ singer studied architecture at the University of Nairobi. He is one of the talents employed when building The Hub, a Sh4 Billion Shopping Mall in Karen.
While most of us grappled with maths, Wahu didn’t and she graduated with a degree in Mathematics from the University of Nairobi. Before joining UON she wanted to pursue hairdressing but her mum strongly opposed it but she later realised her hair dreams with the establishment of her salon, Afrosiri.
6. DJ Tabz
The gorgeous DJ was admitted to the bar in May this year. She broke the news with a post that read“Today I get admitted to the bar as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and I can't thank God enough for this far He has brought me and kept me. It's been a long journey with both good and especially many tough times but surely those who wait upon the Lord shall never be put to shame. Thank you, Jesus! #AdvocateDj,”
If you heard Frasha singing “Frasha, mi mkali , nilianzanga mziki tu na Nakitare, akajikalisha basi tu na dakitare, si unajua Frasha nakuwaga dakitare.” Know that he isn’t bluffing. Frasha is a trained physiotherapist who worked at The Agha Khan Hospital.

11. Corazon Kwamboka
Booty, Beauty and brains are 3 words that can describe prolific socialite Corazon Kwamboka. Though she may be known for her booty more than her brain, Corazon is a pretty smart lady and she was admitted to the bar a few years ago.
She broke the wonderful news with a post that read “Beauty without brains is like a masterpiece painted on a napkin. Meet the brand new advocate in town #advocateofthehighcourt of Kenya .”
