Details About Kenyan Musician Stephen Otieno Who Is Popularly Known As Stivo Simple Boy

Stephen Otieno popularly known as Stivo Simple Boy was born on January 28th, 1990. However, the name Simple Boy was given to him due to his simple type of music. He is the second born in a family of eight children. Simple Boy has a twin sister who much of her details are yet not known. Simple Boy attended primary school in Oyugis, Homabay County where he was born. However, he attended the local primary school up to standard seven. It was at this point that his family relocated to Kibera slums in Nairobi. He finished his primary education in Kibera but was unable to advance to secondary school due to lack of school fees.

Simple Boy started doing construction jobs in Kibra as soon as he was done with his standard eight.

He released his first song dubbed 'Ukimwi' in 2015 but it was not a hit. He later released 'Mihadarati' in 2017 but it didn't give him fame immediately.
