According to her morning post on Instagram, she had been on Wednesday rewarded by the company for emerging at the top for recently concluded 2019 AFRIMMA Awards, where she was announced the winner of best Female Artist from East Africa region, beating the likes of Tanzanian's Nandy and Vanessa Mdee, Victoria Kimani, Fena Gitu among others.
