Having tried her hands on so many things before settling on singing, her source of strength is the passion that keeps her going.“Music is easily the best thing I have ever done.” It was an escape from the life of struggles, she says, her face lighting up with satisfaction.Another ogre facing the entire performing industry, is piracy whose merchants, she says, have mastered the art of survival, confusing even the musicians themselves.Kim says piracy is killing the music industry in Kenya and is denying hard-working musicians their deserved decent living.
She volunteers performing at night events some of my engagements have turned me into an owl of sorts and when most Kenyans have retired to bed, she most likely drives alone in the dead of the night from one function to the other.”Advances from men, seeking to cash in on her fame, have also been a challenge, especially those who contract her to perform.
