Danny Gift started singing professionally in 2008 in a trio gospel group called Fisher of men, which later split in 2010 after a section of the group members felt like they were being dragged down behind by others.
However, it was until 2012 that Danny Gift officially debuted in the showbiz scene after he emerged as one of the finalists at a reality television show dubbed the Exodus, a singing competition aired by the national broadcaster.
“It was after the reality show that I collaborated with gospel singer Hey-Z on song Bando Nasonga which opened up doors for me in the showbiz scene,” he says.
Now a fulltime worship leader at Devine Destiny Church in Kasarani, Danny Gift describes his music as a ‘mixture of taarab and bongo’ music.
Contrary to a popular misconception that he hails from Mombasa, Danny Gift was raised in Mwiki, Nairobi has never lived in the coastal city and in fact, some of his critics accuse him of aping bongo artistes.
“I am not a copycat I sing in Swahili because it has been my favorite language since primary school,” he defends himself.
In 2011 he released his debut single titled Najua upo a song that also helped cement his place in the gospel industry.
Nonetheless the 25-year-old notes that it has taken him longer to become a regular face compared to artistes whom he started the music journey with, believing that God’s timing is always the best.
He blames his slow rise in the vigorous competition in the local music scene and lack of proper marketing strategy as an artist.
After his latest video with Daddy Owen, Danny Gift remains
thankful to Owen whom he says paid for the entire expenses for the production of the song and video. The song has put him on the limelight with a number of artistes now approaching him for a possible collabo.
Gospel singer Janet Otieno and gospel hip-hop artiste Mr. T are among the many artists who have shown interest in collaborating with Danny Gift.
However, much as he is excited by the attention, he has opted to focus on releasing a new single dubbed’Sawa Sawa’ before he can do another collabo.
