Mombasa-based singer Sudi Boy has worked very hard to carve a niche for himself in the Kenyan music industry and at the same time still keeping his Bongo music style.
The celebrated singer, real name, Sudi Mohammed, is known for his unique style of singing which is always Swahili-themed songs, which include; Kule Kule, Naona Bado featuring TPF contestant Amileena, Kidonda, Twende with King Kaka, Iromo with top rapper Timmy Tdat, and Barua Kwa Rais with Jaguar.
Sudi Boy’s vocals give him a unique style, which goes well in collaborations with rappers. This explains his numerous projects with fellow Kenyan artistes, thanks to his alluring voice.
Some of Sudi Boy’s recent accolades include Best Male Artiste and Best Afro Fusion Artiste at the Coast Awards. The songs that he produces bring an infusion of harmony, lyrics that speak to the soul and a performance that is vibrant in its essence and electrifying in its delivery.
Other than music, Sudi Boy has a personal life that he likes to keep off the public radar, but sadly, he lost his dear wife, Salma Lutevesi, to the cruel hands of death back in August 2015 after she suffered from pneumonia.
It was the toughest and saddest time of his life because losing a loved one is never easy for anyone. Sudi Boy and his wife were blessed with a cute daughter and had been together for 5 years.
Sudi Boy revealed that his late wife was very supportive of him when he was making his way up the musical ladder and that she was his sole motivation even when he felt like giving up, plus his best friend.
So, did losing such a close person in his life affect his musical skills and did he feel like giving up at some point in his life?
The celebrated Coast artiste was at the Kiss FM studios during Adelle Onyango and Shaffie Weru’s breakfast show, where he talked about his love for music, when he started singing, and how he managed to get back up after his wife passed away.
