Kennedy Rapudo, the fiancé of Amber Ray, opened up to Obinna in a wide-ranging interview about his personal life, his upbringing, and many other little-known details about himself.

In his early years, Kennedy lived in Kisumu, the Rift Valley, Western Kenya, and other places.

"Nilizaliwa Mombasa and then my mum had different jobs so i have been to different places. Nimeishi Kisumu, Rift Valley, western, niko kila mahali," he admitted.

Most people are unaware of the fact that Rapudo started selling products like flasks on the streets of Nairobi after completing form 4 in order to gain money.

The father of two also ventured into brickmaking and poultry farming in his search for a lucrative industry that would propel him towards financial independence.

"I did that one and then at some point I went back home. Nilikua nachoma matofali. I also tried my hands in kufuga kuku. I have been here and there trying to hustle," he said.

The successful businessman would start working for numerous oil businesses including TULO and Africa Oil after earning a Master's degree at the University of Nairobi.

"Tulikuwa tunafanyia different oil companies in Kenya. One of them was TULO. There was also Africa oil. We were doing research for them. After that I went back to USIU to do my second Masters because I loved their programs," he said.

Rapudo began driving numerous cars for Uber eight years ago, marking the beginning of his entrepreneurial path.

And that was just the start for him; he would later land his biggest break working for a Dutch travel agency, where he planned vacations for customers from the Netherlands.

"After that I left the job in 2015 and got into doing some business. Nilikuwa na magari. After that I started working for a Dutch company, we were doing tours and travels. Mostly we were dealing with inbounds. clients were coming form mostly Netherlands."

After the Covid pandemic decimated the business he worked for, Rapudo made the decision to launch his own tour business and seek out "God."

Kennedy's explanation of his source of riches will undoubtedly put an end to the useless speculation that has been going on for the past year about where he got/gets his money.
