The Kardashian clan is arguably one of the most recognizable celebrity families ever to take on the show business world.
They have all lived under the constant glare of the public and perhaps overshadowed other siblings such as Kate and Pippa Middleton, Jaden and Willow Smith, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, Gigi and Bella Hadid with their opulence and glamour.
Whilst Kenya is at its infancy in entertainment, it has too had its share of blood relations taking a stab at the allure of glory and fame.
Many have, however, kept their family connections a little quieter and even though they have come out time and again to acknowledge each other, not so many people know that the following Kenyan celebrities share the same family tree.
Madtraxx and Dj Stylez
DJ Stylez is the elder brother of Madtraxx and is considered by many as one of Kenya’s pioneer DJs to hit the mainstream jackpot with his Code Red outfit.
While Madraxx did not take the turntable route, he reigns supreme with the likes of Mejja and Kid Kora under the ever-fresh Kansoul group.
The two entertainers suffered a huge blow in 2017 after they lost their elder sister, Dr Njeri Muigai.
She was eight months pregnant.
The Code Red bigwig was, however, the best man as the one-third member of Genge rap group wedded his longtime girlfriend, Salma, in 2018.
Bamzigi, Kidkora and Lenana Kariba
Bamzigi - a hip-hop star who a while back made his highly-anticipated comeback in the lyrical video “Form Ni Gani,” has some very famous siblings.
