Veteran Kenyan female musicians are giving their lives to Christ at an alarming rate! It started with Linet Munyali otherwise known as Size 8 who set the precedent over four years ago.
Then came Wahu’s shocker in November last year, with the former turning to gospel music in style by releasing her debut single; “Sifa.”
Last year also saw Cece Sagini jump ship to the gospel industry, saying it has been a long time coming.
Also joining the list of secular singers who have found salvation is Cecilia Wairimu, alias Amani. The songbird, whose music career started after she signed a record deal with Ogopa Deejays in 1999, has turned over a new leaf.
She made the revelation on Instagram yesterday, saying it’s been over a year since she got saved.
The ‘Kizunguzungu’ singer also shared a poster of an old Insyder magazine dated 2009 in which she graced the cover.
Reminiscing about how far she has come, Amani wrote: “Circa 2009…on the cover of the Insyder magazine…started that journey at an early age of 18…by this time I had gotten the hang of it.My passion for music thrust me into an Entrepreneurial world…was looking at a notebook the other day that had scripts, budgets, marketing plans…yes for my music.We just don’t wake up and sing ???…
I have turned on a new leaf I am now born again but I count it all joy…I learned so much and gained so much experience.”
Prior to the announcement, Amani, who is co-founder of Diva Hair, had been posting inspirational Bible quotes, a clear indication that she has since turned over a new leaf.
It now remains to be seen whether she will extend her salvation to her music. Keep it NairobiWire!
