‘Kigeugeu’ singer Jaguar is one of the most philanthropic Kenyan artists and is also considered one of the richest musicians on the scene.
He has always been one of the most private artists in the business, rarely spilling any details of his past.
For a long time now, people have always assumed he came from a wealthy background but it turns out it wasn’t always a rosy life for him.
He recently revealed that he had once been turned away from school because he did not know English , he also says it took the faith of one headteacher to get him back into school and his life took a whole new turn.
He recently went out in search of the headteacher only described as ‘Mr. Gathigo’ whom he took a photo with before sharing his story with his fans on social media.
This is what he wrote,”When my mum passed away i had just completed class 8 and didn’t have someone to take me to high school…so i went to Kikuyu to live with my Uncle where i helped him with house chores….one day my auntie tried to take me bk to school at Musa Gitau pri bt they refused and said i couldn’t talk english and also was very expensive for my uncle and his wife to pay for me…i started sellin water at Thogoto shopping center during the day when my guardin’s were at work…one day i saw a school next to Thogoto teacher’s college called Magutuini pri and decided to enter and try my Luck..i met the headmaster at the gate and introduced my self and my story and this man hear with me in this pic listened to me and told me to enter class 7 and start learning..His name is Mr Gathigo…he changed my life and will forever thank God for him…was it not for him and my uncle steve and Eunice i would have never gone bk to school….went to look for him and Thank him..”
