- Achieng Agutu woke up to the news that she has another famous fan who enjoys all her videos
- The beauty was shocked when the one and only Gabrielle Union praised her for her confidence and positivity
- Gabrielle termed Achieng's art as what the world needs so much
A year ago, the world was introduced to the enigma, the powerhouse, the divine Achieng Agutu better known as the confidence queen.
She quickly got stuck in everyone’s tongue thanks to her positivity and sparkle that never fades away.
The student who lives and learns in the US became the SI unit of positivity and her love for inspiring content gets everyone every time.
The most recent member of the Achieng Agutu fan club is none other than Being Mary Jane actress Gabrielle Union.
The mother of one dedicated a substantial text to the ever hyped up dark skin queen and it could bring tears to the driest of eyes.
“Her Instagram is rich with content that empowers, heals and boosts your mood. She is the internet’s personal HYPE woman,” Gabrielle wrote.
According to the famous actress, Achieng is the kind of comfort the world needs during these dark times.
“We could also use a cheerleader right now. On top of her words of encouragement, she serves LOOKS; rocking patterns and colours that just exude joy,” she added.
Achieng Agutu became a household name after she was reunited with her family whom she had not seen in two years and rewarded with some cash by American TV show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Her emotional story of working multiple jobs to make ends meet, her parents selling land and taking loans to take her to school is what touched the audience in the Ellen show.
While many concluded that she came from a humble background from her confession, others, especially Kenyans, cast doubt on her claim that she learned some words by watching The Ellen DeGeneres Show in Kisumu where she grew up.
“I work one full-time job, my 9-5 as an admissions counsellor at Holy Cross College. I babysit for two families, I wash people’s cars, I clean their houses, I am an Uber driver," she said during the interview.
