Betty Hamisha, a US-based Kenyan whose official name is Elizabeth Kanee, is set to launch her new album titled ‘Ciru’ on April 16th, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
Betty was born in Central Kenya, Maragua District, and now resides in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. She is a parent and the family’s second-born child.
She is a community organiser and a leader in a variety of migrant communities groups, including GWITU (Gikuyu women in the USA, UK, and Canada), which focuses on teaching Kikuyu language and members collaborate to create relationships that aid in knowing a few standpoints to understand Kikuyu heritage, women empowerment, financial advice, psychological health, and career planning, to name a few.
She intentionally builds networks and also founded a forum called Diaspora Soul Connect, that was founded during the pandemic and now has over 10,000 followers. The forum’s aim is to connect singles abroad to find friendships or soul partners.
Her upbringing was ordinary, and she struggled, yet she is grateful to God that all worked out well.
Betty is a God-fearing lady, ambitious, determined, and go-getter who has worked and traveled in various African nations before finally settling here a few years ago.
Working hard, ethics, and respect for others, she believes, always pay out in the end. It was because of her ideals that she pushed herself to overcome tension and monotony through the pandemic by producing music to encourage her fellow Kenyans.
She has written and produced 12 songs so far, with more on the way. Nîtwaumanirwo, Wasi Wasi, Betty Mathibidi, Cirû and Kwandûka are some of her hit songs.
Betty has gotten the privilege of serving as a brand ambassador for Willstone Homes, one of Kenya’s top real estate companies.
She is also sponsored by African Touch Adventures.
Her album will be released on 4/16/22 in Baltimore, Maryland and all information can be found on the attached flyer.
You can also find her on all social media sites as Betty Hamisha, and on YouTube, as Betty Hamisha as well.
