BBC anchor Anne Ngugi with her daughter Angel Wanjiru.

BBC Swahili anchor Anne Ngugi’s daughter Angel Wanjiru has wowed the internet after narrating how she has overcome her health problems and accompanying b******g and is now pursuing her dream of becoming a musician.

Angel was born with a congenital disorder called hydrocephalus (a buildup of excess cerebrospinal fluid in the brain at birth), which means she has a bigger head than other people. However, at just 14, she’s produced her first album.

In an interview with BBC What’s New’s Christine, Angel reveals that initially she was concerned why she was born different from other children and why people stole glances at her but with time, she accepted her condition and learnt that the best way to deal with b******g is through songs.

“Mum, why am I different from other people? Why is it that when I pass, people laugh at me?” she used to ask her mother, who she says only responded by singing. She took the cue  and the rest is history.

Angel is set to sit for her KCPE this year and she has released quite a number of songs and the latest is Tuko Sawa, meaning we are all the same before the eyes of God.
