US-based Kenyan singer Benson Ongachi alias Benachi is living the dream life in North America a few years after relocating and getting married to the love of his life, Joan.
The Mwanake hitmaker who is among Kenya’s most-followed gospel stars has over the years not been shy in sharing his struggles to making it big time in the United States.
For starters, Benachi still sings and is a seasoned minister in Donald Trump’s new-age America with a travel catalogue that spans Dallas, Atlanta and New York among other cities.
Proud of his achievements, he lives in a homely neighbourhood and occasionally shares snippets of it and their experiences with his wife.
His recent post on what he went through as he attempted to punch his musical weight above the proverbial glass ceiling in Nairobi has captivated many.
The Lieutenant Films CEO stated on Instagram that the lesson from his Nairobi hustle was that 'no one knows tomorrow as God is in control of it'.
“Nilitembea sana nikihustle Nairobi,kupiga root 11 ju ya kukosa bus fare. I never thought that one day I will be able to own a car. Enyewe you don’t know about tomorrow. God is Good, God is faithful,” he wrote.
On September 8 he added: “Struggles are part of life but they are not a totality of what life entails. So we must remember to discover all the other ingredients that make life worth living. Victory belongs to Jesus.”
While the ownership of the black GMC truck above is not clear, his wife Joan, regularly, waltzes around in a white Chevy Suburban, according to pictures on both their social pages.
The two lovebirds have a daughter together, Olivia.
A life of means by any standards and a stark contrast to his yesteryears in his native country before he hit the jackpot with the late Kaberere in 2014 following the release of Mwanake.
Kaberere did not live long enough to enjoy the success as he died months later after being electrocuted in a freak accident at his Nairobi car wash.
