Afropop and Soul star Wendy Kimani is back on the scene with a bang. The ‘Haiwi Haiwi’ singer has been off the scene for close to five years with no releases or collaboration. She assures her fans that so much has been happening but she is ready to keep us grooving.
Wendy just released a brand new single ‘Pagawisha’ – an Afrosoul banger in which she sings of a lover who completely confuses her [pagawisha]. The song is produced by So Fresh.
Speaking about the record, Wendy says, “I am really excited to be releasing my new single after years of being away. I had so much fun working on this song. With it, I just wanted to bring musical joy to my audience,” adding on Pagawisha, “ It means, ‘you confuse me in the best way possible’. It’s a feel-good song talking about reigniting love in a relationship. It’s about finding that fire and feeling those butterflies again and getting romantic. It’s also about the fire I feel inside of me right now, I have fallen in love with music again.”
This comeback means a journey to Wendy’s upcoming EP and single releases. She teases her next single, “You will love my Afro House song coming up next, it’s called “Same Ol Love” and has got that South African house and dance vibes.”
At the same time, Wendy launched a new YouTube channel, ‘Wendy’s New Normal’ that follows her life living in The Netherlands, since her relocation from Kenya. She reveals, “It’s all about rediscovering myself, marriage, mental health, my hair journey and also health conditions like PCOS conditions.”
