Jane Muthoni a popular Kikuyu musician known for hits such as ‘Materetha’ (Tribulation) is officially off the market after saying ‘I Do’ over the weekend.
Before fame, Jane worked as a house help to make ends meet.
Speaking in an interview conducted by Jeremy Damaris on a US-based TV Station (Kikuyu Diaspora), Jane said,
When growing up, I always wanted to be an artiste. I was born into biting poverty, burdened with no secure place to call home. I came to Nairobi and I was employed as a house girl in Jogoo road, taking care of children and doing all household chores.
‘I already have kids I’m not ready for others,’ whispers Sauti Sol’s Bien
My employee was not so bad, which I always thank God for. The most challenging thing is that those days house helps were paid so little.
I was paid sh300 per month despite doing alot of work in that house. I did not lose my vision of becoming an artiste so I kept trying.
When I asked my employee to increase my salary, she added me sh20, that added upto sh320 per month.
Jane also added that being a house help was among the many jobs she had done.
I also worked as a waitress in Gatundu where I was earning a thousand per month.
Below are photos from the wedding, details on where the wedding was held are still scanty.
