No matter where you are born or how dire the situation is, tomorrow is always an opportunity to change the course of your life. Being a house help is not an easy job especially when dealing with a fault finding employer. Some of these employers put so much pressure on their house-helps and even criticise then infront of the very kids they look after when their parents are not home. But not all households are bad. That said, some of these ‘maids’ as they are often referred to, have special gifts as we shall see in this article. This writer takes a look at the Kenyan Celebrities Who Worked As Househelps  and are now A-list stars.

Gloria Muliro is an award winning Kenyan gospel musician whose music has not only propelled her to the limelight but it has also enabled her to live a comfortable lifestyle. The 41-year-old was brought up in Western Kenya and lost her mother at a very young age making life very difficult. She worked as a housemaid at one point and earned Ksh1300 per month. She would later become a bit famous after releasing the song ‘Omwami Aletsa.’ This would be followed by a number of other songs including Sitolia which brought Willy Paul to the limelight.

Betty Bayo

Betty Bayo is a gospel musician whose songs are majorly sang in her native Kikuyu language. She became famous after her husband Pastor Victor Kanyari was exposed for being a false prophet who had conned thousands of Kenyans out of their hard earned money. She trended for a while after the expose on KTN with some alleging she was part of her ex-husband’s scam. However, she distanced herself from Kanyari and has since grown to become a brand on her own with a social media network that reaches hundreds of thousands. Her YouTube channel has massive followers and a number of videos majorly done in the Agikuyu language.

Before all this fame, at one point she had to drop out of high school due to lack of fees and worked as a maid for two years before going back to school.
