Some call it fate while others might call it luck or just God's doing, either way, some people's dreams come in different ways. And that would be the case with a local gospel artist who had the pleasure to meet dine with the Head of State - a privilege only a few people are accorded - courtesy of nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura.

The Senator on Thursday, March 11, revealed how he linked the local artist with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Mwaura made a revelation after he took to his Twitter wall to heap praises on Carol Wanjiru, a local gospel artist well-intensified for her song Munduiriri (my defender) - a song that was released back in 2016.

Senator Mwaura disclosed how the song inspired him, prompting him to reach out to Wanjiru. Mwaura said that he told the artist that the song would be a blessing to many people in the country if she would translate it to Kiswahili.

Following the proposal, the two ( Wanjiru and the Senator) embarked on the project and translated the song from Kikuyu to Swahili.

While still in touch with the songstress, the senator requested the artist to accompany him to the State House to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"In 2017, Carol Wanjiru performed the song during the late Governor Nderitu Gachagua's burial in presence of the President but never had a chance to meet him. I later organized for the same and her dream of meeting the President became a reality," the Senator said in his post on social media.

From the Senator's proposal, Wanjiku accompanied by her husband got to meet the President.

Wanjiku revealed that during the visit, they posed for photos with President Kenyatta as well as getting a chance to sing the song alongside him.

Her song is said to one of President Uhuru's favorite songs and he can sing it word by word. Reports say the song is President Uhuru's most favorite.

The late former Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua who died in a road accident in 2017 is also said to be fond of Wanjiku's song. It is reported that the late governor wanted the song to be performed during her burial by her family.

Wanjiku released the song back in 2020. In a previous interview is a local YouTube Channel, the artist revealed that she released the song while still working as a secretary in an IT firm.

She revealed that she composed the song after going through a broken engagement while she was just about to tie the knot with her lover at the time. She says at that moment, she felt like God never liked her since she never met most of her expectations in life. According to her, the song contained things that would uplift her heart during her low moments. 

The now very common song among the people of Mt. Kenya was her sixth. 

According to Wanjiru, she did not know that God would use the song to bless her and take her to a newer scale.
