Ruth Njihia, Sarah Mutuma release new gospel hit in US
An Atlanta-based singer has teamed up with her sister to release a song titled “Pentecost” which has become an instant hit in the Kenyan Diaspora.
Sarah Mutuma and Ruth Njihia are the latest gospel artistes to enter the scene with their single which is part of an album titled ‘Lifters’ available both on CD and DVD. Their spouses are also feature in the video shot in Kenya.
Speaking to the Nation in Atlanta on Thursday, Mutuma said she was overwhelmed by the response she has received since she launched the album.
Her husband, Mr Dennis Mutuma, said many Kenyans in the United States have told the duo that they identify with the messages in their music.
“We realise that, just as it is in Kenya, there are many Kenyans both in the US and other parts of the world faced with a myriad of challenges partly because of the hectic lifestyles they lead. But through music, we are reiterating the words of the Bible, that they should never tire of trusting in the Lord,” he said.
Sarah Mutuma told the Nation that her team has been shipping copies of CDs and DVDs in their hundreds to different US cities since Sunday. “This is overwhelming for us and we are very happy that our music is blessing people.”
“Sometimes we get very lonely here and keep stuff to ourselves not knowing whom to trust with personal problems. This music gives me a lot of hope,” said Jessica Makilya, who lives in Minnesota.
