We like to keep abreast with our favorite musicians life – age, relationships, wealth, career, and any background information. Our focus today is on the sensational Nadia Mukami who blasted our radios and hallways just a few years ago. The songstress is a great vocalist and an awesome performing artist. She is one of those musicians you see on stage and wish their performance never ends. She is also beautiful, man.
It seems like her Embu and Kamba parent-combination served her best, just have a look:
Amazingly beautiful. Well.
My favorite song about her is Si Rahisi.
She was born in Pumwani hospital on the 9th of November, 1996 as the fourth born of five kids.
Her real name is Nadia Mukami Mwendo. Before deciding to use her real names on stage, she was Nadia Xclusive. Exclusive? I get why she had to change her brand name.
Nadia attended Kari Primary School along Mombasa-Nairobi highway where she sat for her KCPE exams in the year 2009 then later got admitted to Mount Laverna School in Kasarani, Nairobi where she attained a B+ (mean grade) which secured her an admission to Maseno University to pursue a degree in BBA Finance option.
Beauty with brains!
Shift from poetry and writing to music
Having given writing a try before deciding to be a singer at the age of 18 years, Nadia Mukami is indeed a true art lover. Growing up she loved listening to Sanaipei Tande and Ray C. She later on featured her role model Sanaipei Tande in her song Ni Wangu.
As with any successful musician, Nadia Mukami had produced songs before her fame. In 2015, she wrote and recorded Barua Ya Siri as her first song. But she was lucky to have her turning point with the second song, Kesi.
It was Kesi that made Nadia to get noticed by players in the entertainment industry. With this song, she performed at Blaze The Nile Festival and The Luo Festival among many others. In February, 2019, she released a very successful song that gave her the limelight she is enjoying today. The song, Radio Love, she featured Arrow Bwoy who was to be her boyfriend two years later.
Currently, the two are married and are blessed with one baby girl.
