These two schools have produced the most Kenyan celebs

When you think of schools, you first think of the academics and how well the school students perform in the national exams but what if I told you that some schools offer more than just this?

There are some schools that have a track record of mentoring tomorrow’s stars and teaching them how to better harness their talents and start them off on their craft.

Perhaps what these schools did best was simply to instil confidence in these future stars and showed them that they had what to takes for them to pursue their dreams and actually put them on the track to actualize them.

And in this regard, there are two schools that seem to be head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to putting their students with talents in confident positions to put their mark in Kenya and they are:


Fena Gitu

The artist was encouraged to pursue her talents by her teachers at the school.

Size 8

Bet you didn’t know this gospel singer and pastor attended this expensive and prestigious school.

Edith Kimani

The media personality too is an alumni of the school.


St Marys

Uhuru Kenyatta

Kenya’s 4th president is an alumni of the school.

Adelle Onyango

Former Kiss 100 presenter and female rights activist too is an alumni of the school.

Jeff Koinange

The former CNN anchor and celebrated media personality is known for his baritone is a former school student.

Lupita Nyong’o

That’s right the Hollywood star is an alumni of the school.


So if you’re picking a school for your talented children, you know to look for schools that boast a great number of celebrity alumni, schools with a strong extracurricular activities culture and teachers who are great mentors.

But when it comes to school fees, Co-op Bank has a solution for you. That’s right, you can get yourself a partner that can help you pay and that is Co-op Bank. Why? Because school fees are all about planning. You should not wake up to realize that fees is due tomorrow and you had not planned for this eventuality even though you’ve lived large for some long holiday weekend. You need a partner who can help you map out the entire financial plan and ensure you get the best possible option for your child(ren).

With the Co-op Bank innovations and partnerships, you can pay school fees and buy new uniforms without having to bear the risk of carrying huge sums of money around. I mean, it would really be a comedy of tragedies if you misplaced that money or it was liberated from you right?

In addition to this, you can also load up your child’s pocket money to their Co-op Bank Pre-paid.
