Diana Marua finds solace in the words of Nigerian singer Mr 2Kay “God Can Bless Anybody”. 

For a girl who used to date men for money, she’s now turning heads with great accomplishments in the entertainment business.

Diana Marua Omach was born in Migori County on 5 November 1989. Her story will inspire any girl regardless of their life situation. 

At a young age, she witnessed her late mother Lillian Nyambura Gikurumi and her father, Joseph Omach divorce. Despite that, she carries a loving memory of her mother. 

Diana revealed that she grew up in an environment full of fear. Her father was violent and when her mum left, (he was six years old), she and her siblings bore the brunt of her father’s wrath.

Later on in her life, Diana dated several men who could finance her desired lifestyle, a decision she deeply regrets.

“My life has not been rosy and I have done some things that I am not proud of but it was part of my life. It’s now in the past. At some point in my life, I used to date guys for money because I lacked that my whole life, 

I had someone who would pay my rent, another would do the shopping and another one would cater for my wardrobe. All I wanted was to live well.” She shared it on her Youtube Channel.
