It always amazes me when our celebrities share stories of their humble beginnings.
Many of us just assume the who’s who of Kenya just happened on fame and wealth, making many of their fans green with envy.
Take for instance coast-based singer Nyota Ndogo. She has gained a massive following with her music ruling the airwaves. One would assume she has always had it easy. But no!
Today being Thursday, she decided to share a throwback photo when she was younger.
Well, she is barely recognisable.
Nyota has been in the news for a while now after photos of her wedding day emerged, causing a sensation online. Nyota got married to her Danish boyfriend, in May this year.

Anyway back to her throwback photo. Nyota Ndogo dropped out of school, and later worked as a domestic worker. Times were indeed tough for the taarab singer, before she hit the music scene.
