"I remember at one point in primary school, there was a mathematics question that asked about the number of fingers one had. I picked six as the answer since I counted my fingers,” he said.
He said the Maths teacher called him to the staff room as he was surprised that he could fail such a simple question.
"My teacher could not understand why I failed such a simple question. So I was asked to count my fingers. I did so. My teacher stood there bewildered," he added.
Kamau, an Information Technology graduate also disclosed that he was pushed into the beauty industry by one of his close friends after he graduated.

Kamau also believes that being born on the 11th month and on the 11th day was perhaps why he has 12 fingers and toes.
Nigerian man creates artificial hands for his brother who lost two fingers
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a talented Nigerian man had created an artificial hand for brother who lost two fingers.
Ubokobong's parents sought to help their son who got depressed after the incident by getting him an artificial limb from Germany.
Unfortunately, the limb would be easily identifiable by people as it was designed to be used by a white man - its colour didn't match Ubokobong's dark sin.
This dilemma moved Ubokobong's talented elder brother, John Amanam, who is a sculptor to make a black artificial limb for him.
