Peter Miracle Baby Background, Age, Real Name.
Every rising star has a story to tell and for Miracle Baby, he hasn’t seen it easy, therefore, lets get to know him.
When you talk about starvation, homelessness or any other kind of struggle, Miracle Baby has seen and lived it all.
Peter Njuguna Mwangi a.k.a Miracle baby was born and raised in the informal settlement slums of Denderu in Eastlands of Nairobi.
At a tender age, he no longer had a place to call home as he became a street boy moving from one street to another day in day out.
In his early 20s he was able to secure menial jobs here and there just to survive and try to make it out of the streets. He has done all the worst and terrific jobs you can imagine just to feed his family.
Before joining music, Miracle Baby was a street boy before securing a job as a morgue attendant.
They young star shared on social media about his harsh life in the past including what he had to do to put food on the table. From the picture he shared, all these were self-explanatory from the tattered clothes he used to wear as a street boy.
He engaged in the business of selling boulders and performing kikuyu stand-up comedy before he got his breakthrough in music through the newly found Kenyan music genre Gengetone.
Miracle Baby has managed to rise to the top upon his breakthrough mainly through hard work and resilience.
Surviving in the streets of Nairobi without any form of connection or direction needs a lot of dedication, tenacity and the ability to focus on the work at hand.
You must have some kind of work ethic because the menial jobs in the street pay less than pennies which cannot afford you to pay rent for the cheapest house in the slums.
To Miracle Baby, these jobs inspired him to do his best and deliver the best he can even if the pay is close to nothing.
The poverty around him made his eyes and ears open to any opportunity and when Gengetone came around, he was well prepared to ride the wave as much as he can. And he did exactly that.
He is probably one among the many celebrities who has had unique jobs before they got a taste of celebrity money.
