“We Split Because Of Clash Of Belief” Little Facts About Mother And Son Kikuyu Gospel Musicians Duo

If you are a social media user and a fan of Kikuyu gospel music you must have come across mother and son at some point. The two were a duo gospel musicians back in the days who left a legacy which lives up to date.

One hour ago Inooro fm radio presenter Jeff Kuria posted on his Facebook page celebrating the two musicians where he gave out little facts about them. According to him, Mwangi Njoroge Known by stage name Jomo of the famous Ithaga Riene show is the son to Margaret Njoki Njoroge who formed the music duo called ‘mother and son’ where they used to sing together.

He was born in western Kenya and he started singing since he was a child together with his mother in church. They later moved to Nairobi on a mission to record songs where he credits the late Joseph Kamaru since they recorded their hit songs like “Uhiki Wa Jesu, Nowe Wiki, and Mothe Nimagathira” in his studio.

Joseph Kamaru later connected him and his mother to Elizabeth Omollo at KBC who gave them the name “mother and son”. Their first album had fourteen songs and “Ndirona Njerusalemu” was their breakthrough song and they got a lot of success.

The two separated after some time due to clash of beliefs but still continued working together on projects until the mother Margaret Njoki Njoroge died in 2016. Her legacy still lives since her music is still relevant up to date.
