Juliani – Kenya

Raised in Nairobi’s eastern suburb of Dandora, home to many of Kenya’s hip-hop icons and legendary rap groups like Kalamashaka. Juliani knew from high school that he would follow in the footsteps of his idols, which lead to his fateful introduction to Ukco Fulani. From here is career took off; playing in nightclubs and local concerts.

His commitment to Christ in 2005 lead to his rise in the Kenyan Gospel Music scene, a scene he would take by storm shortly after entering it. In 2006, Juliani joined Kijiji Records, where he did several compilation records with Astar, Michelle Rigga, and Bupe. With these records they toured high schools and colleges throughout Kenya. Early in 2008, after the post-election violence in Kenya, he got together with other top Kenyan artists to record the multi-award winning Wakenya Pamoja single and video.

Juliani represented Kenya at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, he has supported the World Vision Peace Tour, Vina Na Maana (a campaign against Economic Partnership Agreements), Stand Up Against Poverty and Emmanuel Jal’s ‘We Want Peace’ campaign. He launched ‘KAMA SI SISI’ in early 2011.

Juliani has won multiple awards both in Kenya and the USA.
