Kenyan celebrities are not above the law (although certain exceptional circumstances might have you asking questions).
Just like any citizen, if a celebrity is involved in illegal activities, they will face the long arm of the law.
Here is a list of local celebs who have served time over the years.
Before we all knew him as the ‘Hivo Hivo Ndo Kunaendanga’ hit-maker, Majirani was a jailbird.
In 2011, Majirani decided to quit his degree in Criminology at the University of Nairobi, Eldoret Campus and chose to pursue music instead. But a calamity befell him after he quit school; he spent a whole year in jail.
Speaking to SDE in a past interview Majirani said “A week after quitting campus the worst happened. I was arrested by cops while on my way home from a gig.
I was locked in the cells where I had a brawl with one of the inmates who we had a misunderstanding. I wasn’t lucky enough as within no time I was remanded in Narok Prison without being granted an opportunity to defend myself or bailed out.”
