Kenya’s gospel industry has been under the microscope of late thanks to accusations of empty songs that lack real message, that artists are leaning towards secularism by the the day.
But one Kambua whose songs have always been uplifting and gospel by any standard, has gotten noticed perhaps because of that and has just landed a major deal.
The artiste is the first ever beauty brand ambassador for Darling, a hair product by Style Industries Ltd.
Kambua received lots of praise when signing the deal whose value remains a closely kept secret, but which is said to run into millions.
“We are privileged and honoured to have Kambua on board and we have confidence that she can take this brand to where it truly belongs,” CEO Mahmoud Saffideen said as quoted in the media.
An elated Kambua said she was humbled by the decision to make her the face of the brand.
“I’m honoured to be a part of Darling because it’s such a great brand and to be a part of making women feel beautiful and confident about themselves,” Kambua said.
A quick perusal shows that Darling brand started in the early 90s in Industrial Area in Nairobi with only 25 staff and five braid machines.
Since then, the company has grown in leaps and bounds, and now boasts not just local presence but it has also spread its wings into other African countries such as Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, South Africa, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Ghana and Zambia.
