African Community Awards: African Community in Germany Awards 2022. Selah Gaomi has been nominated for the Best African Actress in Germany Award in Germany at the AFRONEWS – Ortel Mobile African Community in Germany Awards 2022.

Who is Selah Gaomi?

Selah Gaomi is not only an actress but also a poet and journalist. She writes scripts and directs skits. She writes stories that immigrants in Germany can easily relate to, focusing on their struggles to settle in Germany, integrate and find a place.

One of her fans said Selah’s skills are unique since most people are shy to talk about issues affecting immigrants in Germany, especially those affecting Africans in Germany.

“I’m super proud of our Kenyan woman, our Kenyan pride. I see potential in her because she is multitasking, multitalented, our next Lupita Nyong’o. Our honest, loving, loyal, patient, selfless Selah..  words fail to describe her amazing job.”

Selah has put tremendous work in her art and has done a great job in conveying the film’s message to her audience. Coming up with the script and acting isn’t an easy task, but Selah does it so well.

Selah Gaomi is a Kenyan social reformer, revolutionist, worshiper, song writer, spoken word poet, script writer and an actress based in Germany. She is also the founder of A Dawning Hope Artistic based in Kenya. 

She first came to Germany as an Au pair. Selah hustled her way to the top although it was tough and at some point, she was forced to apply for asylum in order to legalise her status in Germany. Seeing people with heavier burdens who were stuck in a foreign country like her inspired Selah to reach out to all foreigners through her art.

As a poet and musician, she is able to express herself and emotions musically, this way she connects with her audience. As an actress she is able to connect with her audience as she is able to live different lives of different people.

Selah’s greatest achievement as an artiste so far is having founded A Dawning Hope Artistic. This platform empowers, impacts, inspires and provides healing for a healthy generation.

“Running the A Dawning Hope Artistic has not been easy at all. It requires a lot of sacrifice which ranges from finances, time and finding suitable people for shoots. Hearing comments such as you inspire me, I was able to settle easily in Europe because of you gives me such joy and for me that is enough achievement,” Selah says.

She was recently nominated for the Tällberg Global Leadership Award.

As of now Selah Gaomi is working on a show that aims at bringing people together and enabling them to speak freely and express themselves without fear. She hopes that her story will give other immigrants the courage and confidence to work hard and overcome depression and any other challenges they face in Germany and other foreign countries beyond.

A Dawning Hope Artistic focuses on bringing hope to the hopeless: Creating awareness through skits; Empowering immigrants through talk shows; Promoting the Gospel of Christ; Promoting integrity by bringing messages of peace, reconciliation, healing and restoring hope through counselling; Healing the wounded souls and restoring dysfunctional families through music and hope cafes; and reaching out to widows, orphans and widowers.
