The gifted actress Nancy Wanjiku Karanja, also referred to as Shix Kapienga, recently discussed the difficulties she encounters when dating.
The accomplished actress blamed misconceptions about her background for her single status in an open interview with TV47.
“Men assume I am too ghetto for them to date me,” Shix Kapienga revealed
Comedian Ofweneke went further to find out if this impression was influenced by her outfit selection.
“In the ghetto, I would just rock my jeans and T-shirt and move on. Why would I wear a dress?” Shix responded by defending her wardrobe selections.
The actress talked about the struggles she had as a child growing up in the Kangemi neighborhood and emphasized the importance of working harder to overcome obstacles in life.
Shix Kapienga Relationship
Shix is not known to be in any romantic relationship and she has always kept that bit of her life as private as possible.
She has however been under pressure from fans to settle down and start a family.
“Surely, kuna deadline ya kuolewa,” she responded to one fan and to another she said, “Eeei..pressure ni ya nini jameni?”
She however looks forward to settling down some day in the future.
“I would not mind, if it should happen it will happen, if it will not, still okay. God’s timing,” she said in a media interview
Shix Kapienga Early Life And Education
In an interview with a leading digital news outlet, Shix admitted to having a normal childhood and not those long stories of a hard life spinned by celebrities to garner sympathy. The cheekiness aside, Shix was not a stubborn kid as many think.
She played in the mud whenever it rained, ate mafifi leaves and played ‘kalongolongo’, just as a typical kid would do in that generation when the only TV station was KBC. Her early life in Kangemi molded her to become the actor she is today.
The petite radio host started her education at Westlands Primary School. She was to later join Good Samaritan Primary School in Nakuru before moving to her old school where she sat for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams.
The actress was admitted to Mirithu Girls’ High School before joining Kangaru Girls’ High School where she completed her O-levels.
Appreciating the value of education, Shix enrolled at Daystar University to pursue a degree in Communication.
