Story Of 'Kuna Dawa' Hitmaker Esther Wahome, Here Is What She Is Doing

Esther Wahome, a Kenyan gospel singer, was virtually ubiquitous in 2004. She became a shining star after her song "Kuna Dawa" became a smashing success and was played on radio stations across the country.

Her album Yahweh, from which the song was from, is one of the best-selling of all time, with more than a million copies sold.

Kuna Dawa was such a smash that it earned her two Groove Awards: Best Female Artist and Song of the Year.

Her first two singles, Furahia and Daktari, were published in 2013 and 2014, followed by a slew of songs in the Kikuyu language in 2015.

But, she put her music on hold to focus on her family, particularly her autistic son's health.

Yahweh, Shakinah Glory, Minyororo, and Asali are just a few of the recent successes from the legendary musician, who returned to the spotlight in 2019.

It's too bad that CoV19 appeared on the scene just as her career was beginning to take off again. Her 2020 schedule was already completely scheduled with clients from all around the world.

In January, she performed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and in February, she was scheduled to give concerts around Europe.

The 46-year-old has been actively involved in church service, specifically preaching to several congregations, ever since she returned to the country in 2020.
