"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever," is one of the famous quotes of Mahatma Gandhi, former Indian lawyer and anti- colonial nationalist.

Despite building a huge name in the music industry, Reverend Ruth Wamuyu believes in Gadhi's philosophy as she has demonstrated that she has never got tired of learning and always make time to go deeper and wider in her education.

Wamuyu, the founder of Victors Assembly Church Intl - House of Judah Ministries, has demonstrated that the music industry was not for underachievers as most people perceive it to be.

On Saturday, November 21, 2020, the award-winning musician graduated with a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Africa International University.

While announcing the good news to her fans and followers on social media, Wamuyu said she was thankful to God that He has seen her through "two years of intense study".

"I can testify that He has made me win over ignorance," the 'Amukira Ngatho' hit maker posted on Facebook.

The musician, who sings who not only sings in Gikuyu but also in Kiswahili and English languages, holds a degree in Theology from Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology.

Wamuyu began her career journey in music in the early 90s and has inspired many through her songs and mentored many in the industry.

She is married to Reverend Theuri Maina, a former teacher, a preacher and author of various counseling and motivational books.

"It’s been tough juggling between ministry, work and family, but I am grateful that through God’s grace, I have managed to strike a balance in all areas of my life," she said in a past interview.

Wamuyu says during her free time she likes to listen to gospel music, go swimming with her two daughters, travelling with her family and reading the Bible and other motivational books.

Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga and popular city preacher Joan Wairimu of Pambazuka Production and Queens Ministry were among tens of people who congratulated Wamuyu on her graduation.

"Congratulations my sister. You have done extremely well. It takes great determination and focus study, serve God, not forgetting mothering and more so-the role of a wife. So proud of you," Pastor Wairimu posted.
