'Alipokwisha kunena, alimwambia Simoni, Tweka mpaka kilindini, kashushe nyavu zenu…' (When he (Jesus) had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.)

If you are not an avid reader of the Bible, you might have stumbled upon these words while scrolling your timeline on social media.

Lifted from Tanzania’s gospel gem Christina Shusho’s Shusha Nyavu, the line has gained incredible popularity among Kenyans and a few weeks back the singer was trending at number one!

So much so that she was invited to the country for a New Year’s Eve event that will be hosted by comedian Daniel Ndambuki at Garden City.

Well, Shusho is already in the country ahead of the event and is pumped up to thrill her fans. Speaking after her arrival at JKIA, the singer said she is humbled by the love Kenyans have accorded her and welcomed them to give thanks and pray for grace in the coming year.

“Kwa mara ya kwanza niliamini wananipenda. Nilijua mimi nawapenda Wakenya sana kuliko wao lakini kwa sasa wameniaminisha kwamba wananipenda.

“Niko hapa sababu ya demand ya wananchi,” she said. (I thought I loved Kenyans more than they loved me but now I believe they love me back as well. I am here due to public demand.)

Shusha Nyavu is one of Shusho’s most loved songs and boasts over 8.4 million views on YouTube.

Released two years ago, the song preaches hope and has quickly become a fan favourite.

The singer said it is a special song to her as well as she composed it in a very short time but the message was impactful and resonated with multitudes.

“As I was preparing for the Comeback event, my management insisted that we could not just release a video which by then was Relax video alone as people already knew the song Relax. As a result, they asked me to come up with a song and fast.

“I remember that in my entire career, this is the one song that I composed within the shortest time possible...it is about hope, new beginnings and not giving up. It is about trying again even when you are on the verge of giving up hence "By your words I will cast the net again,” she said.
