With the rapidly growing population of youngsters across Africa, the elders have now resorted to asking for money from the younger talents.

Forget Fresh Kid for a moment, Kenya has its own crop of youngsters including fourteen-year-old Daniel Simiyu a.k.a Dantez.

Dantez tells a very inspiring story of his rise to stardom which he started on the streets at a young age of ten in 2014, without a single penny but determination.

To record his first song titled Mawazo, Dantez was first chased away from studio despite managing to save up to Ksh 3,000 for the session. He insisted and was later allowed to record.

He has slowly risen through the music ranks in the +254 but he faces a huge problem being a famous student at his school.

Dantez reveals that teachers fear to punish him every time he does wrong yet he yearns to be treated like any other child.

Another problem is that fellow students and the teachers too ask money from him because they know he is famous and rich, something which troubles him.

Please beat me if I am wrong. I want to be treated like a student… My fellow students will ask me for money. Even teachers would ask for like millions and I am just begging them to stop asking me for money
