First inspired by watching her mother Betty Makunga in local musicals, 22-year-old Graciella Mwende is making strides both in music and fashion.
The budding fashion designer, who dons her dresses in her videos, fostered her musical talent at Sunday school choir. Mwende’s musical career earnestly bloomed in her secondary school years at Gitwe Girl’s High School, where she started writing and singing her own songs. Her songs were produced by her older brother, Phillip Kinyungo.
Her single, Reign, is a prayer to God to prevail in her life. She says:
“Sometimes we find ourselves doing the wrongs things and not living according to His expectations, so I am asking God to rule in my life so that I may live to accomplish His will.”
