Finland based Kenyan artiste Rawbeena in an interview with Mpasho said that being an orphan at a tender age played a role in her ending up living on the streets.
According to the ‘Kiboko’ hit maker she is forever grateful for how far she has come.
‘Life in Finland is God and I thank God, If I was still in Kenya I do not know where I would be. Music does not pay much in Kenya.
I study and I still work. It’s been a good ride.
I was homeless back in the day while I was still struggling to find my footing.
I would shower in a public toilet and sometimes I would be forced to wear my clothes kama hazijakauka.
That is why I do not like seeing people struggle.’
Rawbeena said that having come from a big family she had to learn how to be independent from an early age something she is forever grateful for.
‘At the age of five I was an orphan, we were 8 siblings and my brothers sent us to family to take care of us.
I came to Nairobi and did some odd jobs, at some point I did not have a job and I became homeless, i did not have any where to go.

I used to go to a nearby cyber and do some academic writing jobs, for maybe 300 or 400.
That is why I take my hustle very serious.’
