A musician, actress and a poet, Sharon Achieng Winnie aka Sharnie the First a student at Moi University is a young multi-talented artist who has been on the roll and is warming up to officially join the mainstream scene.
Only at age 23, Sharnie has managed to develop and sharpen her abilities through dozens of live performances, starring in a few films and most recently jumping to the studio to unveil her debut single as a solo artist titled ‘Kata kwa Wembe’ set for release in a few days.
“I started singing in church like most people but by then I still had not figured out it was a talent. For me it was a hobby, just something I enjoyed doing. When I got to class 7, my friends started telling me how good I sounded. Then I got to form one and my classmates branded me The girl who sings all the time”, she walks me through how it all began.
“I think I was just ignorant because I still didn’t think I sang well enough to perform in front of people. So one day my desk mate signed me up for a talent show in school dubbed ‘idols’ and she didn’t tell me till the day of the show. Therefore, I felt I could not back out. I went and sang ‘Breathe slow’ by Alesha Dixon and I actually won. Everybody said I did great and that’s how the ‘Legend of Sharnie’ was born,” She added.
Having garnered enough experience from working with diverse bands and sets, Sharnie music comes in different styles and genres, something she terms as universal music.
Voted Kisumu’s next star 2016/2017 and nominated for Female Artist of the Year Varsity Awards 2017, Sharnie, a member of the Moi University band continues to groom her vocals and garner more music knowledge as she gears up to official step on the scene.
