Highly revered gospel songbird Kambua took three years to finally agree to collaborate with Mr Seed.
Accordign to Kambua, this was mainly because she did not want to be seen as a collabos musician.
“It is the first time we have done a song together, although it has been three years since Mr Seed approached me to collabo with him,” she told Adelle on Kiss FM.
Kambua added, “You get so many people who want to collabo with you, and so if you just go and say yes, you might become the collabo artiste of the year, you know. I had to space my collabos.”
Mr Seed confirmed having to wait for three years after approaching Kambua’s manager.
“Kambua alikua ananiplayiatu star, and I had to explain to her that it is true gospel,” he said.
On why he chose Kambua for their song ‘Happy’, Mr Seed said: “I love her voice and so we just connected so well and thank God, it finally came naturally.”
Both musician acknowledged that there’s added pressure in the gospel industry with regard to the kind of songs artistes are doing, especially the younger ones.
“People are judging the male gospel artistes. Many people are listening to our songs just to judge us,” Seed said, while Kambua added that “the pressure pushes you to keep true to your fans”.
