Harry was a master of serenade music from his hits like African Woman to Haiya, every Kenyan who heard his music fell in love with it instantly.

A music genius.

Many of his fans who had not seen or heard from him since his last single titled, Waithera, were shocked at how different he looked.

Where Are They Now? Talented Kenyan Musicians Who Vanished From The Music Scene

The Kenyan music industry has grown tremendously, with upcoming artistes giving legends a run for their money. While some of the older crop of musicians are still in the game others have simply disappeared without warning.

The music scene is like a jungle where only the fittest survive. I have compiled aa list of musicians who either disappeared for good and those who tried to make a comeback but failed, and have again disappeared.

We wonder where they are!


The Mombasa-based musician came into the limelight for his song ‘Amka Ukatike’ but before he could even celebrate his milestones, he mysteriously disappeared almost 10 years ago and has never been seen since.Wherever he may be let him keep in mind that we miss his music.



The duo captivated us with hits like Vuta Pumz, Piga Makofi among others. A decision to relocate to the US came as a career suicide since not much is heard from them nowadays.With the current rise of artistes like Willy Pozee, we wonder if they would be able to keep up.


Harry Kimani

He was among the top afro fusion musicians in Kenya, with his captivating voice and smooth melodies Harry won many hearts with his Song Haiya which was in Kikuyu.

He disappeared from the scene and although he tried making a comeback, he failed miserably.


Meg C

This beauty captivated us not only with her singing prowess but for her beauty as well. Meg C came into the limelight for her song ‘Nipe’ but before we could let all her beauty intoxicate us, she disappeared without looking back.



The Banjuka Tu hitmaker came, conquered and disappeared. He later dropped Maswali Ya Polisi, and converted to gospel, then once again disappeared, just like he came. In-case he decides to comeback, let him know we are waiting.



The Nyundo Yangu hit maker disappeared from the music scene before we could get enough of him. If he was to make a come back, he would have to fight for his space with artistes like Timmy Tdat, Kenrazy among others, the question is, will he ever regain his glory?



Like Nyashinki says “Sikukaa siku nyingi mpate nafasi ya kuckoka na mimi”, Kendi came conquered and decided to let us enjoy her music,  but the wait has been too long.

Kendi was among top female artistes with the likes of Avril, Amani and Size 8 Reborn but she made the exit early before sunset.


  Big Pin

The ‘Beast From The East’ captured ladies hearts with his collaboration ‘Talk To You’ with Amani And Patonee, among his other hits include Why Lie which he collaborated with Nameless, Benteba and Tera Moss.



Like his name suggests, he is pepper when it comes to  music, and he is famously known for songs such as Kamata Dame, Nina Morale, Ukimwona with the late Lady S among others.

Whatever his reason for leaving music is, no one can deny he was a talented musician.
