Some Kenyan celebrities are laughing all the way to the bank but for one reason or the other, they have chosen not to display their vast wealth on social or engage in discussions about what they own, unlike other public figures.
More often than not you’ll see them, you’ll see them driving around in ‘simple’ cars and having meals at eateries that you and I frequent. This makes it hard to believe that they are deep-pocketed but believe it or not, they are!
That being said, let’s take a look at 5 Kenyan celebrities who are well off but don’t blow their own trumpets;
1. Njugush –
Despite having deep pockets money, comedian Timothy Kimani continues to lead a simple life. If you take one look at him when he’s in his element, you would think he’s a pauper but far from it, Njugush guy is loaded.
He has made tonnes of cash over the last few years thanks to his collaborations with various local brands that use his vast following on social media to popularize and sell products.
He receives good money in the different commercials he appears. Safaricom pays him upwards of Kes1 million for every advert. This is the similar amount he is paid by Pwani Oil Products to be the brand ambassador of WhiteWash Extra. Evidently Njugush makes most of his money from commercials.
His popular videos on You Tube generate money for the comedian. His videos have adsense ads running. With 500,000 views, Njugush roughly makes $300 dollars (kes30,000).
2. King Kaka –
The rapper whose real name is Kennedy Ombima is affluent, according to those who know him well. He has made a lot of money in music, seeing as he has been releasing hit after hit in the last decade or so.

He also owns Laugh Industry, an entertainment conglomerate that manages comedians and organizes events.
4. Amina Abdi –
Popularly referred to as Jean of all trades in the entertainment circles, Amina Abdi has continued to wow many with her flexibility.
Not only is she the host of a radio show, Amina also hosts “The Trend” that airs on NTV and another one on Maisha Magic. With all these engagements, she is definitely making some good chums.
5. Sauti Sol –
