The Millenial generation aka Instagram generation gave birth to the #TBT, #WCW and #MCM culture which have since taken root and shaped netizens themes for Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The trend has been steadily held all over the world and Kenyans haven’t been left behind either. Kenyan celebrities have been serving us with hilarious throwback Thursday photos, before the money and fame (before neno) which have been inspiring many Kenyans to believe we can achieve all that we put our minds to.
This week’s TBT’s have inspired as well as cracked people up with their funny old pictures. Old celebrity pictures have also opened up their old lives to their fans.
- Simon Kabu
The bonfire adventures CEO has today opened up on his life before the wealth and fortunes he has now. Before the businessman became who we know him to be now, he revealed that he was screening videos at Egerton University where he charged Ksh.5 for two videos. This shows that he’s always been a hustler.
Adorned in a hipster which was fashionable back in the day, check out the tbt photo below:
He also revealed he used to be a Tuzo salesman in a photo on a motorbike.
2. Timmy T Dat
The kasabuni crooner has been an avid TBT poster as he has constantly been posting his old photos before neno. The hitmaker has never shied away from opening up on his humble beginnings. Born of eight siblings, his early life was not a bed of roses. From working as a garbage collector, a matatu tout and a dress seller, the singer has made a name for himself no one can dispute.
