Former Machakos first lady Lilian Nganga has defended aspiring musician Diana Marua after her first song received harsh criticism.
Nganga, on her Instagram page, urged Marua to believe in herself as she embarks on her new career.
“Each of us can be anything we want to be. Diana Marua is all that you can be. All of it,” Nganga, who is dating Juliani, a musician, explained.
Marua also received a shoulder of support from singer Akothee, real name Esther Akothee.
“Shoot your shot, the attire she wore is the best. Mine would be a bit shorter with half of my breasts out. Music is for the eyes and ears, people see and listen to music. I was only taught to clap at others when they are winning,” she opined.
Marua, wife to Kelvin Kioko aka Bahati who also is a successful musician, released her first song titled Hatutaachana tu on Monday. The track has received mixed reactions from Kenyans online with a majority appearing critical.
