There are many wannabes who desire to live in celebville but cannot afford 'rent' in this fickle and demanding high street. But there are those who have made it second home, writes TONY MOCHAMA
This list of a hundred, minus TV personalities, is the complete list of the peeps currently Pulsers call â celebritiesâ. If you consider yourself a celebrity and are not on it, then work harder to be in Pulse (because we say who the celebs are in this town, and all of the above are folks weâve featured in one form or another over the last eight weeks).
Beware though; rent in âCelebvilleâ is steep. And other than dangerous neighbourhood dogs called âPaparazzi,â the landlady called Fame can evict you any time, bila notice.
Susan Adhiambo â The current Miss Kenya is pretty and beguiling, with that âXâ factor that is missing in too many beauty queens nowadays.
Eric Wainaina and Suzanne Owiyo â Ask anyone outside the gates of âCelebvilleâ who are its two leading citizens in there, and these are the two names most likely to crop up. Wahu [Photo: Standard]

Daddy Owen âThis Saul turned Paul crook saw the light and turned to the Lord, and lo and behold! He is gospel king.
Juliani â He is possibly the most talented musician in the country, going by his lyrics and his dazzling performances.
Nameless â âKamonskiâ is the architect of his own destiny and has ruled the roost of our local music since his Ninanoki hit exactly a decade ago. Bravo!
Churchill â This very gifted thespian and comedian will go down in our history as a Kenyan celebrity who took laughter and satire to another level.
DJ KayTrixx â This red-haired rasta young man has shot up far and fast among Pulsers, and knows his decks and music.
Size 8: Since she appeared on the scene, this little vixen has taken us all by fire and storm. Go gal.
