Alvina was born and raised in Nairobi. She credits her musical discovery journey to a one Mr.Patrick Ngere who believed in her and gave her 2 songs to solo during the drama festivals dance category when she was in high school drama in 2009. She has always been a performer albeit not musically but Parto always pushed her to transfer her powerful acting voice onto her singing voice and to expand her range especially when it came to the higher register.She believes that as an artist flexibility is a must. This is why she has also collaborated in taarab songs, sang afrojazz, raggae and R&B among others. She has hosted karaoke for two years, performed and emceed at weddings, other social and corporate functions. She has had her fair share of disappointments by recording countless songs that were hits only in the studio. Since then she has managed to have her first album “Bon Appetit” debut exclusively on spinlet. She is still recording and persisting in her pursuit of musical gratification. Her latest hit “Dora Dora”.
