Dela is a re-known Afro-Soul artist whose performances and vocal prowess has been compared to the likes of Chrisette Michele and Alicia Keys. She began singing at the age of 7 in choirs and eventually performing backing vocals for many award winning artists such as Achieng Abura, Villagers Band, Wahu, Stan among others. It was not until 2008 that she began singing professionally. At only 19, her debut on stage was her collaboration with Kenya’s most famous Afro-Pop boy band Sauti Sol that saw her song “Mama Papa” make an impressive record number one hit for 18 weeks on Kenya’s popular Reggae radio station Metro FM. Dela is currently signed by the Taurus Musik label and has re-branded to an Afro-Pop artist. She is presently working on various music projects with well-known producers which she will be releasing later followed by collaborations with major artists across Africa.
