The Kenyan showbiz scene is very vicious and unforgiving. There is the competitiveness of the industry and difficulty to break in, the hustle for a platform etc.
When these factors are added to the judgmental and unforgiving Kenyan audience, it is really easy to understand why some acts fade just as you were about to get to know what they were all about. The industry has no respect for status, the effort and even the standing.
Once the journey down starts there is no coming back at all as ones career is archived. Yet, there are some who have defied the trends. They are not always popping and they can even take a year or more from public limelight but they are always around the business and when they come back they cannot be taken as a comeback for they really never did leave.
They have mastered the act of still being relevant even without having anything happening at the time. Here are 7 such celebrities in Kenya who can never be written off.
1. Big Pin
Whether you want to talk about pioneers, the E-Sir legacy the artists with numerous comebacks etc, Big Pin is a consistent name. It is hard to even recall off the head the last song you heard from this Jatelo but you can be sure it was a club banger. Somehow the artist still gets regular gigs and his opinion is always sought on trending issues.
2. Sheila Mwanyigah
Sheila Mwanyigah has been around the block and done pretty much everything from music to modeling to show hosting and now news anchoring. She is never going to leave even if she doesn’t always make news, she will be much closer to the epicenter than the periphery.
