Wahu Releases Sifa As She Officially Shift Her Music Career To Gospel
Wahu Releases Amazing Feel-Good Gospel Song.Rosemary
Wahu Kagwi, widely known across Africa as Wahu has been off the limelight for a long time. Surprisingly the singer is back, this time with a gospel song. The new track is dubbed Sifa Swahili word for praise.
The veteran Kenyan singer/songwriter, who has been in the game for close to two decades now says, she wrote the song when she was going through a really low point in her life.
Life is full of ups and downs. As an artist, sometimes I take advantage of my various emotions for the sake of artistic expression. Riding an emotional wave” so to speak. Well, I wrote SIFA when I was going through a really low point in my life. I could have written a dark song that captured the essence of how I felt. I could have poured out my pain into an emotional song, which would have been perfectly ok, but I didn’t. Instead and to encourage myself, I turned to my Heavenly Father, asking Him for a way out of my darkness
“As I turned to Him, I began to recall parts of scripture that I was taught early in my life. “In everything give thanks” (Thessalonians 5:18); “The thief comes to kill still and destroy, but Jesus came that we may have life in abundance” (John 10:10) and that there is power and victory in praise (Joshua 6)
As hard as it was, I began to give God thanks and praise, just like David in the bible who lifted praise to God as a way of finding strength, comfort and peace as he went through trying times. What I have personally found is the more I praise God, the lighter my heart becomes, and the more strength and joy I experience.
In summary, in her song Sifa, Wahu seems to thank God for the blessings she has received so far and goes ahead to ask for even more. Robert Alai wrote on Oct 3, 2017, that she was hospitalized. Might be that she went through some hard time unpublicized.
She is married to Nameless, another award-winning Kenyan musician with whom they are blessed with two daughters.
