Ssaru is arguably the most popular female artist in what is a male-dominated genre, earning her the title ‘Queen of Gengetone’
Ssaru began her music journey posting freestyles over hip hop instrumentals to Instagram, Twitter and Youtube.
Ssaru completed her high school education in 2018 at Bura Girls High School.
Bura High School is located in Voi, Taita Taveta County.
Though still in her teens, this singer-songwriter has already amassed a sizeable and rabid fan base. Behind the delicate voice, Ssaru writes the kind of ominous music that speaks directly to the masses who appreciate her unflinching honesty.
Born and bred in Kayole, the young musical star chose to follow her dreams instead of going to college.
Ssaru was rumored to be dating comedian Flaqo in 2020 after a video surfaced of the duo in a tight embrace.
She has, however, established herself as a top artist in her own right with a series of hit releases such as Nyama, Nimetokea ki Sos ft. Benzema, Weka and Leo which she recorded with Mejja
