Saying Wahu’s new Gospel tune is amazing is an understatement.
Dubbed “My Everything”, the song is inspired by a true story, presumably Wahu’s experience when her husband Nameless was diagnosed with a life threatening illness late last year.
“My Everything” talks of a woman who sought Gods intervention when her husband and father of her children suddenly fell ill, on an ordinary morning as the family went about their normal morning routines. At her point of desperation, and realizing that her husband’s life was on the balance, she called on Jehovah Rapha, God our healer to reveal Himself …. and He did.
The track’s video is so inspiring and clearly drives the message through that God hears us, even when we don’t think He does.
Artists like Wahu are just what the Gospel industry needs right now; Less show-off and more messages about the Gospel of Christ.

Veteran musician Wahu dropped a new song, this time, something quite different from what we’re used to.
Titled “Sifa”, the song is of the Gospel category. In a rather long post on YouTube, Wahu describes what this song means to her. She writes:
“Life is full of ups and downs. As an artist, sometimes I take advantage of my various emotions for the sake of artistic expression. Riding an emotional wave” so to speak. Well, I wrote SIFA when I was going through a really low point in my life. I could have written a dark song that captured the essence of how I felt. I could have poured out my pain into an emotional song, which would have been perfectly ok, but I didn’t. Instead and to encourage myself, I turned to my Heavenly Father, asking Him for a way out of my darkness. As I turned to Him, I began to recall parts of scripture that I was taught early in my life. “In everything give thanks” (Thessalonians 5:18); “The thief comes to kill still and destroy, but Jesus came that we may have life in abundance” (John 10:10) and that there is power and victory in praise (Joshua 6) As hard as it was, I began to give God thanks and praise, just like David in the bible who lifted praise to God as a way of finding strength, comfort and peace as he went through trying times. What I have personally found is the more I praise God, the lighter my heart becomes, and the more strength and joy I experience. In the song, I proclaim that my enemies are scattered. Just to clarify, the enemies I talk of are not human beings ☺. The bible says in Ephesians 6, that our battles are spiritual, not physical; As such, it only follows that our weapons should be spiritual, not physical. So there’s no physical person being “scattered”; but I have every confidence that my Father in all his might has scattered all spiritual forces that raise themselves against His will for my life, in Jesus name. The same is true for you, if only you believe. Please listen, enjoy and be uplifted. Remember the battle was won when Jesus died on the cross. Claim your victory and walk into your purpose in faith, putting God before all. Be blessed. One love.”

In a post put up via the singers IG page, Wahu’s life was far from great. The ‘Yeye’ singer is constantly posting up inspirational posts via her social media whether it be about being a mom or about life in general.
According to the post, she suffered depression at 19 to the point that she actually wanted to take her own life.
Though she doesn’t detail the cause of it all, the quite lengthy post does end on a positive note about how to deal with such instances.
When I was 19, I suffered from depression. I thought my life was meaningless. I thought I was such a failure and a massive disappointment to my parents. I wanted to do myself (and the world) a Favor and just die. I remember walking past my dads medicine cabinet and just thinking how easy it would be to just “end this”. I remember thinking that I would never live to celebrate my 25th birthday, and if I did, I’d be nuts. Like literally a Mathare case. looking back now all I can say is the devil is a liar!! Look at ALL what he didn’t want me to enjoy! A career that I love, a family I adore, and an opportunity to encourage so so many young people. Don’t believe the -ve whispers that sink you into depression. Don’t believe them at all. You have to know that your future is absolutely bright. And the bigger your struggle appears to be, the greater your future is. So give thanks even in times of hardship because success and happiness is just around the corner. I love you all, and wish you all the very best that life has to offer.
