Tanzanian gospel artist Rose Muhando was at the ECC Main Church in Nairobi with an exciting performance.
The Church event was co-hosted by popular MC Terence Creative, popularly known as Papa Fred, and best known for his Wash Wash Video series on YouTube.
Muhando, who has severally confessed her great love for Kenya, launched her new album at Villa Rosa Kempinski early this year, saying she would use the proceeds of the album to build a church for God.
In a separate interview with Churchill, Muhando said she is proud of Kenya and that is the reason she’s launching her album here.
“You know I want to do something for my God, I want to build him a house, I mean a church. And that is why I have been all out trying to achieve that,” she said.
She added that everything, including her health, improved after she was hospitalized in Kenya.
The Tanzanian songstress, touted as one of the region’s most iconic musical acts since the turn of the century, says she paid a hefty price for taking a stand for her values and faith in a time of reckoning soon after her five year deal with Sony ended.
“It is because of the support Kenyans gave me. I am the same person you people contributed and prayed for,” she said.
Rose Muhando’s electric performance has been described by all manner of adjectives including spine-tingling and highly charged. When she steps on stage, it is almost impossible to imagine what she will do next.
Fans will always marvel at her energy on stage. Bodies sway to the rhythm of the songs, arenas shake with every stamp of feet and believers experience a spiritual moment of praise.
“Muhando is a magician. She has unique vocals and it feels like when she gets on stage, a part of her leaves the world,” says Bento Oriko, a music producer in Nairobi.
