Most people who are born into humble backgrounds wish upon the shooting stars that one day, their situation will change. They always hope that fate will push them to greatness.

Mogaka Dan Ayuka is one man who turned his dreams into reality as soon as blessings started coming his way.

The 32-year-old father of three narrated on Facebook group Home Beautiful how he would often worry about where his next meal was going to come from.

His childhood was riddled with difficulties and hunger was the order of the day.

“I have been watching people post big machines and houses. I turned 32 in September. I was brought up in humble beginning which included skipping meals,” he revealed.

Mogaka, a hardworking husband, said he often wore yellow T-shirts while in campus. He got them during election period when they were being distributed.

In 2011, in search of a job, the 32-year-old moved to Nairobi and always got a hard bargain when it came to landlords.

“This motivated me to save up and prove them wrong. Today I have a shelter in Nairobi that I built from scratch. A place where my wife and kids can call home,” Mogaka proudly said.

The father of three managed to build a mansion that towers his compound and has fine finishing on every corner.

It is lime in colour and the balconies add to the aesthetic.

His huge windows bring in an aura of peace as they welcome light into his living room.

The simple yet mind-blowing manicured lawn is everyone’s dream. The pavement on his yard is made of finely painted flooring and a cabro pavement where he parks his mighty machine.
