Who is Joy Wendo?

Born in Kenya to church-going parents, Joy Wendo grew up singing in the church choir. She later collaborated with other renowned artistes like Kidum, JC Matata, Jamnazi, the Hot Sounds Band among others before launching her solo career and finding her roots in Germany.

While still in Kenya she also collaborated with Ari Pekka Rannisto, a filmmaker from Finland who featured her song on one of his shot films. “Jah People” is a peace song she wrote after the post-election violence in 2007. The film later won an award at the Tampere International Short Film Festival.

Joy Wendo has released several singles thereafter, with “Ni SiSi Tuko” being her latest single available on most digital stores. Other singles include “Nakupenda” (2017), “Noga Noga” “Lugano Lwi Mirembe” and “Mapenzi”, all released in 2019.

She is one of the African artistes in the diaspora who are working hard to promote African cultures in Europe. Her debut album with her band Harambee Live, is expected to be out this year.

Joy Wendo is proud to be nominated for the Best African Musician/Band in Germany Award at The African Community in Germany Awards 2022. “Being nominated for this award has added credibility to my work and will help me find new Artistes or Creators that I could collaborate with. I strongly believe that this initiative is creating a big change in the European culture by promoting Africans here,” she said.
