Kenyan celebrities dads bringing up children single handedly after losing their spouses

Single dads and widowers bringing up their children single handedly rarely get recognition.

These men have been thrown into the single father and widow department not by choice but by circumstances but instead of them crying wolf about it they are using the lemons life threw at them to make lemonade.
