She acknowledged fellow musician Juacali for having been one of the few people to encourage her to get back to music fulltime.
“@juacaligenge has been urging me FOR YEARS to quit karaoke and concetrate on music!!! Bibi @lillyasigo made sure he came to confirm that i was indeed hosting my LAST ONE @thegroveriverside Grateful,” explained Sana.
The Aiyana hit maker started her musical career back in 2004 with the Sema group after they won the East Africa Coca Cola Popstars Talent Search that year.
After the group split, Sanaipei launched her solo career and thereafter joined radio going on to work for Capital FM, Kiss 100 and Easy FM.
