Christina Shusho’s figure-hugging black dress elicits mixed reaction

Tanzanian gospel artiste Christina Shusho took centre stage at the New Year’s Eve concert at Garden City Mall, Nairobi.

Shusho was the main headliner of the “Shusha Nyavu” concert put together by comedian Churchill and some of his team.

Yet, it wasn’t solely her commanding voice that captured the audience’s gaze; her wardrobe selections also became a focal point of interest.

Christina Shusho kicked off the evening in a sleek black satin dress adorned with intricate gold embroidery, complemented by stylish brown high heels.

For her second attire, she wore a lengthy green dera-style dress, elegantly fastened on her shoulder with the Kenyan flag.

She donned a bright yellow caftan dress for her third ensemble and her make-up was also well done.

However, her first dress code has ignited mixed reactions among Kenyans, sparking a debate on whether such attire aligns with her status as a gospel musician.

Online discussions have been buzzing with opinions, with some fans praising her for the stunning outfit, while others expressed reservations.
