Early lifeEdit

Mutuku was born in Nairobi in 1978, the firstborn with three brothers to Mr. and Mrs. Mutuku. She grew up in the Eastlands, a densely populated area in Nairobi inhabited by generally low income residents, and from a very young age was exposed to a diverse range of music styles including R&B, Reggae, Rap, Benga, Lingala and other African blends of music.

Henrie Mutuku's love affair with music was evident quite early in life when at the age of 5 she would sing in family gatherings, church, and nursery school. Later, when she was slightly older, it was the church choir where her talents for music were obvious and enhanced. She has also sung in the local church worship team, Christian Union, singing groups such as More Than Conquerers (MTC) and Prayer Partners (PPs).[1]

Her Christian upbringing in the Eastlands suburb of Nairobi has influenced her style of music[2] as she uses Swahili, English, her mother tongue Kamba and Sheng (a concurrence of English, Swahili and local, vernacular dialects) to express herself and communicate to her audience.  Since then, she has grown to use basic Amharic and French, mainly due to the influence of Ethiopian and Congolese refugees living in her environs.

In upper primary school she toyed with the idea of making music her career choice and as an active member of the Drama Club and Choir mistress in Loreto High School, Limuru, her love and interest in music was solidified.

She is fluent in Swahili, English, Kamba (her mother-tongue) and Sheng.[3][4]

Music careerEdit

Henrie started working in music with local Christian artists like Izzo and Pete Odera[5] as a background vocalist. She later featured predominantly in a 2002 compilation album ‘Rebirth’ produced by Soul Child Inc.[6][7] Her career was catapulted after dual winning the KORA 2002 Best Artiste East Africa (with Eric Wainaina).[8][9][10]

Henrie Mutuku's debut album was “Simama” (Stand)[11] which has gone on to contribute hit songs like “Usichoke” (featuring Roughtone and R.K) and “Manzi wa Maana" (featuring K.J. of Redykulass-a Kenyan comedy troupe). She has also featured prominently in popular music countdown radio shows like Kiss 100's “Smirnoff Top 7 songs in Nairobi”, East Africa FM Radio's ‘Link’ and Kampala FM as voted by listeners.[12] 'Manzi wa Maana' especially captured the hearts of young ladies, swiftly becoming an anthem of chastity and virtue, all the while redefining the true essence of a beautiful African woman.[13] She has since recorded another music video for the song 'Amini', taken off her album 'Simama'.[14]

Henrie Mutuku has curtain raised for Bebo Norman at two concerts, allowing her to make her first music video, “Nakuhitaji” (I Need you),[15] created by the local Family T.V. for the promotion of the Bebo Norman Tour. She then recorded yet another music video for the song “Amini” (Believe), a feature in her album ‘Simama’.[16][17]

In 2003 she won 2 Kisima Awards for Best Female Artiste and Best Contemporary Gospel Artiste.[18] She was also nominated for a KORA Award in 2003.[19]

Henrie Mutuku, after being away from the music scene for almost 10 years (from 2004), came back in 2014 with a new track by the name "Langu" [20][21] off the album “Tena” (Again).[22] In February 2017, Henrie officially launched the "Tena"[23] album, a continuation of her first "Simama"[24] album, for which she was reported to indicate that it is "different because she did not limit herself and tried new sounds and worked with a different producer, one David Higham."[25]

Her name, Henrie, is in honour of her late uncle Henry Musyoki Kilonzi whom she describes as a generous man who desired for all of them to live in an honest and humble way. [26]

InspirationEdit

She draws her inspiration from the Word of God, testimonies of believers around her and other prominent Gospel musicians like Mary Atieno,[27] female hymnwriters like Fanny J. Crosby and hymn translator Catherine Winkworth. She is greatly inspired by the hymn books, ‘Hymns of Faith’ by Scripture Union, ‘Tenzi za Rohoni’ by Lifeway for Baptist Convention of Kenya, Buruburu Baptist Church Songbook, ‘Baptist Hymnal’ by the Convention Press, an outfit of the Southern Baptist Convention in the US and ‘Mbathi sya Kumutaia Ngai’ by Ukambani Christian Literature. She is learning hymns in Kikuyu and open to learning from other ethnicities as well.

She testifies of God's faithfulness in Jesus Christ[28] who has enabled her to grow in song writing, piano playing, strong vocals, faithfulness in service and fulfilled her lifelong dream to be a hymnwriter, albeit an amateur hymnwriter. Most of all, He has sustained and preserved her faith in Jesus Christ. To God be all the glory.
