Jeff Koinange is one of the very few celebrities who are proud of their mothers and respect women in general.
Last weekend, his mother Mary Mbiyu won the hearts of many after she showed up at his event dubbed Country Roads, last weekend in Thika.
The 82-year-old talked about bringing up his son as a very grounded fellow contrary to people’s opinions that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.
PEOPLE SHOULD NOT ASSOCIATE THE NAME KOINANGE WITH RICHES BECAUSE JEFF WAS RAISED IN A NORMAL FAMILY SET UP. I RAISED HIM LIKE A NORMAL CHILD BECAUSE HIS FATHER DIED WHEN HE WAS STILL YOUNG,’ MARY SAID.
On Wednesday during JKL show, Jeff hosted his fellow East Africa Got Talent (EAGT) judges Vanessa Mdee, Makedo Mahadeo, Gaetano Kagwa and host Anne Kasiime.
While talking about his mother, Jeff Koinange said that his mother attended his event for the first time since 2016 when he started it.
My mother for the first time showed up. In school, I did so much from sports, debates, musicals and she never showed up. She waited until I am 53 when I’m almost off the stage, but it was amazing.
The Hot 96 presenter’s mother raised him alone after the death of his father. He sent a sweet message to his mother ahead of her birthday.
Dear Mama, as you turn 82 years old this week, here’s wishing you a happy birthday and many more wonderful years ahead,’ he said.
Thanks for introducing all your children to country music more than 40 years ago and thanks for always being there for us and for never giving up. Love you much and God Bless you always!.
