Kenyan artiste Habida finally returns to Kenya for good to pursue her music career. She was only 16 years old when she got on a plane on her own and left for South Africa.
Already a known local artiste determined to establish her name further regardless of the future plans her father had wanted for her, she followed her heart.
With a lot of pressure from her dad to do law after high school, the talented artist told her father, ” Daddy I cannot read a book even if it was to save my life. I am more of an audio person.” With that being said, she set out to South Africa to fulfill her dreams. Life wasn’t always easy, as she had to wait tables for extra cash and find time to still go to the studio whenever she had the chance.
The beautiful and talented Kenyan artist Habida however, has finally returned home with so much fire and determined to make Kenyans fall in love with her music. “My music is more of jazz and Rnb mixed together. I hope Kenyans are willing to embrace it and love it the way I do.”
Her latest track “Sweet love” which was sent to Kenya all the way from South Africa, was played on Kiss FM. It quickly cubbed attention as Kenyan fans called in on Breakfast with the Stars with Adelle and Shaffie to tell Habida that they loved the song.
“I am glad that I now have a voice and platform in Kenya. I came back during the last elections and it was heartbreaking that we had to shed blood and stay behind closed doors to remain safe. This time, now that I’m here, I will push for peace and unity. I just don’t want my country to suffer anymore,” Habida shared with enough enthusiasm to take on the world herself if she had to.
