We usually think that most Kenyan Celebrities have had fancy lifestyles since they were little. However, most of them had to start from humble backgrounds to get to where they are now. Some have even been house helps at one point in their lives. Looking at them now, you wouldn’t believe them if they told you about their background. These are the top 5 Kenyan celebrities who used to be house helps.
5. Gloria Muliro
She opened up about her hard path to success at a dinner she hosted at Petma Restaurant back in 2013. Gloria even went on to mention how she once slept in the streets and worked as a house help not once but twice.
4. Betty Bayo
Betty’s first job was as a house help in Kiambu where she would be paid KSh 70 a day. She was incapable of paying her school fees so she decided to save up so that she could clear. She mentioned that when she combined her vision and hard work she managed to get her way through to gospel music and we are super proud of her.
The Milele FM breakfast show presenter has talked of how he first came to Nairobi as a house help. His uncle invited him to the city promising him a job. The uncle taught him how to use cookers and other household chores. Soon after, he was the one left to do all chores in the house.
2. Nyota Ndogo
Mwanaisha Abdalla dropped out of school when she was only in class 7. She started working as a maid when she was 15 when she was paid KSh 1,500 for her services.

There is a good reason why Akothee takes pride in what she has now. She came from the bottom and is now a businesswoman. She was a house help to her mother in law for seven years. Btw, she was married at the tender age of 14 years. What’s even worse is that she had three kids by the age of 16 with the second born succumbing to illness. It’s amazing to see how far she has come from being a house help to being the talk of town.
