Amani: My secret for staying top

Cecilia Wairimu aka Amani is one of the first female singers who rose to the music limelight with her sweet vocals and killer moves that made her an instant star.

Among her first hits were Mimi na Wewe, a collabo she did with Nameless and Talk to You.

Amani who comes from a family of three, said it was hard to convince her parents to support her music career. However, this did not deter her from becoming an entertainer.

Her music career has taken her far and wide. She has brushed shoulders with renowned artistes such as RnB singer R. Kelly.

“It was amazing recording with R. Kelly. I pinched myself for five consecutive days because I could not believe that I was actually recording a song with him. He is mighty talented and I always remember him telling me that if a song is good, it is good, it doesn’t matter if it is produced in Africa or America, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. He is a humble and amazing person. Working with him was one of the best moments in my life,” said Amani who is yet to release a single album despite being in the music scene for a while now.

“I have decided to start with singles before doing an album because this way, people get to know you better. I am planning to release an album but only when the right time comes,” she said.

In May, she released a song titled Kiboko Changu featuring Radio and Weasel from Uganda.
