We’ve had artistes who come to the game as secular artistes. We dance to their music in the clubs and then somewhere along the course they switch sides. They cross over from Egypt to Canaan. They denounce their evil ways and get saved. Maybe you know Size 8 alone. But do you know the rest? Well, we look at some of them.
- Size 8.
We all know her. She’s so far the most popular female artiste currently, as well as most successful female artiste we have right now. And she sings! And she is gorgeous, then she is married to gospel DJ Mo with whom they have a cute daughter, Ladasha. Before doing Mateke, she had Vidonge. It was doing really well when she got saved. She was the best-selling female artiste, and everybody envied her. She gave her testimony in Mateke, saying that she was neither happy nor contented with how her life was, despite all the success and fame as a secular artiste.
2. Mr. Googz.
He was among the biggest back then. His collabo with Mr. Lenny and Vinny Banton “Githurai” won him many accolades and he was living well off. He had everything that he wanted and then suddenly disappeared from the scene. When he came back, he was a pastor and was very clean. He did Redemption, a song that announced his state before unleashing ‘Gospel Celebrity’, a song that seemed to be criticizing the current crop of gospel artistes.
Mr. Googz said that he got saved after some show he had attended at Carnivore grounds. He saw heard a voice call him and decided to change his ways. He was also riding high, and had lots of show offers that he had to turn down after turning over a new leaf.
3. Lady B.
She is that lady who used to sing with Nonini. By the way, she’s Nonini’s cousin. They did ‘Genge Love’ together, then didi Kila Mmoja featuring TMK’s Chege before Lady B crossed over. She is now totally saved, does it for the Lord and has numerous hits, including the famous Matunda featuring Eunice Njeri.
Well, do you remember Warda? That lady in Grandpa’s ‘Fimbo ya Pili’ who says patwa lines and has Rasta colors kwa video? Yes, that one. She is saved. She has also dedicated her life to Christ and she’s doing gospel music. She has songs like Agape Love, Thank You featuring Chris Eh Baba and many more.
Events leading to Warda’s salvation aren’t known yet.
5. Kizzo B.
He was some pure emerging talent. He took the musical world by storm with his song “Ulinibeep”. He was even featured by King Kaka in “Nalia”. He however is saved and also does gospel. With songs like Sina Wasiwasi, Unanitosha, Kaa na Mungu and many more, Kizzo B is still going strong.
