You can bet your money on her, she has been the real deal this year, outdoing herself each time she releases a new track.
“Winning this year for me has been a little bit of both luck and planning. I have been in the industry for a while, I took some time out to figure my next moves then things started falling in place. It was gradual as well as intentional growth,” she tells Pulse.
In 2008, she won a singing competition, the Fête de la Musique at Alliance Française, Nairobi. This marked the starting of her career. The urban soul singer and rapper was influenced by the songs she mostly listened to growing up fusing them up to come up with her unique style of urban soul.
Starting out in 2009 when she recorded her first song Donk then later did Fenamenal Woman which broke her into the industry.
Doing her thing Tho is one of the top songs currently enjoying favourable airplay. Having mentioned some of the women who have done extremely well for themselves in various fields, the song has brought her the much-deserved recognition including Lupita shouting her out as well as enjoying some rotation on radio stations beyond Kenya.
“It feels good to receive that kind of love for the song; it has spread far and wide, opening more doors. When I released the song I expected it to do well, yes, but so far it has surpassed those expectations. Another song that did better than I expected was Sema ng’we released in January this year. I also loved how the Fenatics took part in the challenge I carried out online,” she humbly acknowledges.
You will notice that in some of her songs, she fuses a few lines from the singing games that remind you of childhood days, including her hit Brikicho showing she enjoys bringing her inner child to play.
