Pine Creek Records has announced the signing of a new act, her name is Shiphie. This was made known through an unveiling event that was held last Thursday, the 4th of April 2019 at The Alchemist Lounge, Westlands.
The event was well attended by Kenya’s top Djs, media personalities and brand managers including Pine Creek Records founder Mr. Peter Nduati, Coke Studio Africa’s Project Manager Andrew Alovi, Arthur K, Fakii Liwali and many more.
Shiphie, real name Shiphrah Mkamburi Kitulah, is an afro jazz, afro pop/afrosoul vocalist and songwriter born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya. While growing up, her family gatherings always involved melodious singing as her talent is hereditary – she got it from her grandmother who is the sole singer of the family and partly a writer then also from her mother. She was spotted by Peter Nduati in a live music event in Mombasa and as they say all is now part of her beautiful history.
On what inspires her music, Shiphie says it’s her passion for expression and the freedom and joy she experiences while at it. Her first song is called “Everything” and it’s simply a love story of appreciation to the significant other in her life.
