Tanzanian gospel artiste Rose Muhando is currently holding her concert at the Villa Rosa Kempinski.
Several high-profile figures in Kenya’s gospel industry have graced the event that started slightly past 1 pm.
Among those present are celebrated gospel radio presenter Evah Mwalili, radio queen Joyce Gituro, and gospel artist Betty Bayo.
Muhando will be using the concert to launch her new album.
When posters advertising the album launch hit social media early this month, many Kenyans were taken aback by the Ksh50,000 fee, which they considered steep.
But while speaking on TV47’s Bomba La Sanaa, the weekly entertainment magazine show, Muhando said: “God told me to build him a church or else He’d deal with me.”
Muhando launched her career with ‘Nipe Uvumilivu‘ (Grant me fortitude), which relays the suffering of a woman at the hands of a reckless husband and father. ‘Nibebe’ (Shore me up), a subsequent track, became a gospel anthem throughout East Africa.
