They say education is the key to success. Being educated is very good and people should know that education never ends.

The Kenyan music industry is flooded with several celebrities and despite some of them singing shitty songs, there are a few who are learned.

Just like football, music is generally considered a career for the not-so-bright minds especially in the local showbiz scene.

However, a new crop of musicians has emerged keen to disprove this notion. Some of them have PhDs, Masters, Degrees, Diplomas and even certificates in various fields.

They know that without education, they are as good as nothing.

Well, from the legendary singer David Mathenge popularly known as Nameless to the celebrated band Elani, meet the Kenyan celebrities who have degrees.


The hype master, presenter cum musician graduated with a master in Business Administration from the United States International University last year.
