‘High School Crush Motivated Me To Start Singing’ Singer Wambui Ngugi Admits

Wambui Ngugi is a member of Elani which is among the best bands in Kenya, the trio band also compromises of Brian Cheya and Maureen Kunga.

The trio came into the limelight for the debut album Jana Usiku and since then they have been gracing our screens with their melodious voices.

Wambui is both beauty and brains. She is not only gifted with good vocals but with good looks that would drive any man crazy.

During an interview with Daily Nation Wambui opened up on her singing career, she started singing by default after going for an audition because of her crush.

She said; “All along I used to be an admirer of singers because my sister had once told me I wasn’t gifted with the singing talent. I couldn’t sing, not until I met this two, who used to sing from way back in high school.”

She continues; “When I met them (Brian and Maureen) for the first time, just before I enrolled at a university, there were auditions for a (singing) competition called Spotlight Kenya going down at the Alliance Francaise.

Spotlight Kenya would audition singers, produce and package an album for them and then take the groups for musical tours in Europe. The idea of touring Europe made my heart skip a beat, but I knew I couldn’t sing.”

Due to earlier discouragements, Wambui had no plans of going for auditions but she went anyway.

She adds; “It just happened that I had tagged along with my friends who were preparing for the auditions. There was a voice teacher taking them through a song for audition purposes. After teaching the song, he asked us to sing, mistakenly thinking I was also part of the group. He started by pointing me out, asking me to sing what he had just taught.

I was shocked, because he didn’t know why I was there and that I couldn’t sing. When I saw he was getting agitated that I wasn’t responding, I went for it, and to my surprise, everyone loved it”

On being asked why she went for the auditions if she had no interest in singing she says; “Honestly, that wasn’t the reason I went to the auditions with Brian and Maureen. The truth is, I was there because Brian had a close friend, Patrick, whom I had a crush on. We had met before (in high school drama festivals). He is the one who had actually invited me. Clearly, my agenda there was a side agenda. But it happened that I also sang and everyone loved it and kept encouraging me to keep going. It’s at that point that I started singing.”

So ladies don’t ignore your crushes, they might be the key to your future career.
