We’ve all heard about the Huruma guy, Paul Wainaina, who was named as the second winner of the sportpesa cash jackpot. However, very little is known about him. We took it as our role as your number one online media house to introduce him to you. With that being said, here are 3 facts that you didn’t know about him.
- He’s a primary school dropout– Huruma is known to be home to many primary school dropouts thanks to poverty. Paul was also not fortunate enough to go through the 8-4-4 system to completion. Poverty forced him to bid farewell to education at an early age.
- He did not bid daily– Most of us who have been serious about winning this jackpot will tell you how many times we bid on a daily basis. But fate has its own way of doing things and of course rewarding people. Paul never used to bid 10x or more in a day. In fact, it is his 4th bid that led him to this amazing win. Maybe he has a good understanding of the football game. Ooh no! He runs a local video theater from which Huruma soccer fans go to watch football matches. Maybe out of this, he has mastered the trend in football well.
- His video theatre was named “SportPesa” 4 months before he won the jackpot– Talk of defining your destiny right from the start. Immediately he opened his video theatre, Paul says he thought of a name that will not be biased to his customers. He thus did not want to name it after any football team or anything and SportPesa was a perfect match for that. Four months later, SportPesa came running after him.
There you go. The foundation you lay is akin to the level of success you will register in whatever business you venture in.
