Chris Embarambamba Education and Career Journey
Chris began his education at Kierira Dok Primary School near St Augustus Academy located at Kitutu Masaba. The singer disclosed on NTV’s Trend with Amina Abdi that he never finished school because one of his parents died, and the remaining one did not have funds to get him through school.
On the interview with one of the Kenya’s media houses, Chris discovered his career in music right after completing her primary school education. He added that he would even sneak from school and perform at the late president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi’s functions when he used to visit Kisii and Nyamira Counties.
The first songs he recorded did not actually do well. Many other artists were also a major challenge to him because they were pirating and redistributing his music, which made him make meager income from his original work. He then ventured in to the boda boda business of which he quit immediately after knocking a pregnant dog to death.
After quitting his source of livelihood, he started to associate with established artistes so as to learn more about them. He worked under the Gusii music mogul Mr. Ong’eng’o. Ong’eng’o had requested Chris to perform with him in an event which was to be attended by the late Nyachae. Chris used to an expert in playing the drums. He found the name “Embarambamba” while he was playing the drums.
Ong’eng’o advised Embarambamba to release his first song “Ensanako Tebwati Masikani” in the year 2007 which to Chris was a big achievement. Chris later worked with Man Pepe Sagero from 2009 to early 2016 when he released “Amatindogoro”. He later quit the secular world for gospel, which left his fans who had loved his secular music disappointed as to why he made such a decision.
As per Chris, he quick the secular music because it was “a call’. He explained that he had a dream where God told him to go and sing, because he was alive and God was alive also. He then released the first gospel song “Yesu Moyale”.
His style of singing and dancing is rolling in the muddy waters, running in maize plantations, banana plantations, rolling over the cows, jumping over the fences among very many other gymnastics. He does this while dressed sharply in unique suits that he makes at his specific tailor.
Many fans have perceived these as gymnastics that can only be done by a mad man. As per Chris, that is his style of praising and winning many souls to Christ.
In the recent feature on NTV’s Trend live interview, he started off the show jumping from one table to another in an empty newsroom towards the main live studio. He later on the interview confessed that he does these dangerous stunts so as to provide for his family. He then shared his career journey by explaining how he introduced himself to gospel the world.
“The first day I went to the studio, I never carried any book, I just found myself spitting lyrics and it formed a song,” he told the presenter.
