US-based Kenyan singer Benson Ongachi alias Benachi of Mwanake fame has a new lustrous double-storey house. The Nifinyange star, who shot to fame in 2014 courtesy of his magical collaboration with the late Peter Kaberere, just bought a board-and-batten exterior style home, a few years after relocating.

Revelling at the American dream of home-ownership, the singer who tied the knot on December 17, 2016, and welcomed a daughter- Olivia Benachi - in 2019, revealed that he was once homeless in Nairobi, Kenya. “God is good! I once slept outside when I was homeless nikisumbuka Nairobi, Just bought a brand new house for my family. A blessing from God! All the honour and glory goes to him,” he posted on his Instagram account to admiration and congratulation from his over 190,000 followers.

A post on hardship that echoed what the Lieutenant Films CEO shared 10 months ago when he flaunted a black GMC truck that he had recently purchased. “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.”
