I am a Contemporary Gospel recording and performing artist from Nairobi Kenya. My style combines hip-hop rap with vibrant choir vocals to produce an energetic gospel tune that creates lively christian music with an urban taste.


I was born in Kenya 28th March 1975 in a little town on the outskirts of the city Nairobi. I started performing and singing background vocals for a popular local gospel band [check youtube-"The Nakuru amalgamation"] in the mid 90's. Gospel legends Kirk franklin & Fred Hammond were and still are a great inspiration to me and my music style. My combination of rap and choir vocals sets me apart from a lot of gospel rap artists who only use a single lead singer or non on their tunes. I am capable of both singing and raping and this helps me a lot blend with my choir vocalist.


In December 2010, I released my first debut single " Light Of the World" which is increasingly receiving air play on local radio stations. I have had the opportunity to perform in a few local concerts and gospel music shows.
