The Pink Ladies cast member Shix Kapienga has revealed her journey from the gritty life of Kangemi’s ghetto to the dazzling lights of fame noting that life was hard and distressing.
During an interview with the media, Shix offered a glimpse into her remarkable rise from zero to hero and how poverty becomes her part of motivation in making it in life and desire to make more impact in life has been his great push.
Born and raised in a neighborhood that tested resilience on a daily basis, Shix Kapienga recognized the hardships early on.
“Life wasn’t easy in Kangemi, and I knew I had to work harder to achieve more in life and breaking the ceiling cells,” she reflected.
Determined to break free from the constraints of a normal life, Shix set out to carve her own path through hard work and determination and her journey led her to the world of theatre, where she poured her heart and soul into every performance.
“Every day was a hustle; I didn’t want to rely solely on my parents. Theatre became my sanctuary until the day I landed a role in the iconic Nairobi half-life and Beba Beba,” she recounted.
Growing up in the gritty environment of Kangemi, Kapienga emphasized the role of faith in her success, attributing her journey to becoming a Kenyan star as nothing short of divine intervention.
“Becoming a Kenyan star is in God’s hands,” she affirmed, emphasizing the spiritual aspect of her ascent to stardom.
Recently, Shix Kapienga, alongside fellow talents Dorea Chege, Pascal Tokodi, and Azziad Nasenya, secured key roles in the Startimes Pink Ladies show.
The series, airing on StarTimes’s Rembo TV since November, unfolds the lives of four single women—Trizah (Shix Kapienga), Cecilia (Azziad Nasenya), Anne (Dorea Chege), Stephanie (Brenda Gesare), and Charlie (Pascal Tokodi).

Each character in the show brings a unique background story, motivations, and strengths to the table. Jealousy, petty arguments, and selfishness unfold, but at its core, Pink Ladies is a celebration of humanity—flawed, resilient, and united in love, fostering growth among its characters.
