Achieng Agutu has been making waves on the world stage as a confident queen since popular Daytime Tv host Ellen Degeneres interviewed her.
Miss Agutu became a household name after she was reunited with her family whom she claimed she had not seen in two years and was given KSh 5 million by a touched Ellen.
Her emotional story of working multiple jobs to make ends meet, her parents selling land and taking loans to take her to school touched the audience in the Ellen show but Kenyans back home were skeptical.
But despite what some Kenyans might think Achieng’s positivity and sparkle has endeared her to none other than Being Mary Jane actress Gabrielle Union.
The beautiful mother of one who is married to former NBA star, Dwayne Wade dedicated a substantial text to the ever hyped up dark skin queen and it could bring tears to the driest of eyes.
“Today’s #WCW is known as the “Confidence Queen,” and yall I am here for it: @Noordinarynoire. Her Instagram is rich with content that empowers, heals and boosts your mood. She is the internet’s personal HYPE woman, and we could also use a cheerleader right now. On top of her words of encouragement, she serves LOOKS; rocking patterns and colors that just exude joy. Do yourself a favor today, and see what she has got going on. Let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.”
As of now, Achieng doesn’t seem to be aware of the shout-out but I am sure that when she does, hevean and hell will hear about it!
