She first released her song Mafisi in 2014 which iniated a talk around town. SO WHY MAFISI? Beryl says the song mafisi was penned as a result of experience with a past relationship which ended when she found ”her man” cheating.
WHAT CHALLENGES HAS SHE FACED?
Beryl says the Kenyan music industry is tough for upcoming female artistes. She says producers, promoters and presenters often look beyond one’s talent and just want sexual favours to play their songs or record for them.
She says it is sad that some radio stations even ask for money as much as 15,000 shillings to give airplay.
Beryl is about to release a big tune which she says will create great controversies.
She released her new song Namtafuta.
