Veteran singer Kaz has recently come out to claim her own. The singer was doubted to be a member of the LGBTQ family back in the 2000s when people shunned the whole idea of being different. She has now come to claim what’s her as per her post on Instagram which she announced that she had done a TED talk that is yet to be released.

@Kazkarenlucas I haven’t had the opportunity to social media as much as I wanted to.. I’m really trying to be present in this moment. I hit an actual milestone yesterday.. I gave my first TED talk!!!! Like what?!?!?!?!

I spoke about queerness, I spoke about sex Ed, I spoke about BDSM but mostly about consent. It was EVERYTHING out of my dreams!! I am so grateful to everyone who walked with me through this journey.. when I get the go-ahead I will share the video of these tears. But now, they were joyful tears. Like I really made it. Like fr fr. Thank you!” She posted.

She has also let people in on her life struggle for all the people who judged her for “being rich” she said she was pretending to have all these things because her mum who lived in an SQ in Braeburn ensured she could go to school and part of her salary was cut to pay for Kaz’ school fees. In a post on Instagram, she said,

@kazkarenlucas… I spent the better part of the morning walking through my old stomping grounds in garden estate. Fun fact (which I realize not many people know), when I was doing my A levels in Braeburn, my mum and I lived in an SQ. She worked in Braeburn as the Caterer so my school fees was hugely discounted.. actually, her salary was discounted so I could go to school there. In the next slides I share the 2 room (not 2 bedroom) house my mum and I lived in. One room was a living room/kitchen with a paraffin stove and a fridge and also where our house help slept. And I shared a bedroom with my mum in the second room. We slept on 2 single beds. What looks like a toilet now was actually a pit latrine when I lived there. The space was tiny! And I would wake up in this SQ of ours and walk to one of the most expensive schools in Kenya. The juxtaposition!! I learned how to lie about ‘coming from money’ to my friends. I was so embarrassed about that house and I let possibly less than a handful of friends visit me. Now the space has been turned to a storage facility for animal feed. But we lived.. and I schooled and I have always jokingly said that my mother died for my sins because of all the sacrifices she made for my brother and I. Going back there has really been a mind f*ck. But I really want to thank @jules_her for holding my hand through this part and making it easy for me to relive those memories. We may not have had much, but what we had was enough!

Kaz was famous back in the 2000s for her single with the then-hot rapper Prezzo “Nataka Tupendane”.
