Your Favourite Kenyan Musicians And Their Real Names

We all know them by their stage names, interestingly it’s seems that is how far they want us to know them, but the curious nature of human beings has made us to dig deep to find out the real names of some of these great musicians, and I believe by listing them out we will be answering the questions in the minds of lots of people. Most of these celebrities and popular names in the entertainment industry today actually started off life with names that had much, much less star power, names they pieced together from middle names, nicknames and sometimes, names they simply picked on a whim.

As a fan, it is ok if you know the real names of your favourite artist, that’s part of what makes you a great fan and that is what we have come to let you know. Some of these names sound funny anyway, probably that is the reason why they have kept it away from the public, others sound interesting. Its time to pull away the curtain and reveal more of the most shocking, most embarrassing, and downright absurd birth names in the world of music. Here are your favourite Kenyan musicians and their real names, we hope you’ll find it interesting. Take a look.
