Kenyan Singer and Radio Queen Tanasha Donna has opened up about the highs and lows in the music industry.
Tanasha who just started off with her debut song ‘Radio’ has felt both the love and heat on her first song release.
Tanasha says that the reason why she took long to venture into music is that she never had the courage to take the risk because of how big her dreams were.
Tanasha admits that she is not perfect but makes it clear that she is ready to grow.
She also opened up about her undying passion for music explaining that she has given that aspect full commitment.
“I plan weeks/months ahead, I plan every single concept down to the detail, as in every tiny little detail, I make sure I’m involved. I may take time with some projects, some I started and didnt even finish or release because I was still trying to figure out what I really wanted.” She wrote in her post
Tanasha also attributed her growth and achievements so far to the supportive team including her lover Diamond who has also played a big role in her music.
With less than a year in the industry, Tanasha received her first nomination of a prestigious South African Music award.
Although it seems like she is on a smooth part, Tanasha says it is not easy especially when people try to bring her down.
Some say she cannot sing, others say she is doing it for money and more nasty words have been thrown at her. She however maintains that her focus is on her passion and not the hate.
Tanasha in her post declares that she has no plans on stopping her music career but inists that her goal is to represent her country well.
“I have a country to represent and so does everyone else with a passion all over Kenya and all over the world. Thank you God for this exciting, difficult, but promising journey. I know it will be worth it in the end.” She stated

Im just starting on the industry I’m trying to venture into, but my oh my have I had these dreams for years down the line, just never had the courage to actually take the risk because of HOW BIG my dreams were up until about 2 years ago. I’m far from perfect and growing each day and there’s plenty room for more growth, but one thing about me is that WHEN IM PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT I DO, especially if its something I’ve been passionate about since I was 6 years old, (makes me think of those old cassettes my mom had of me performing and singing in my living room every weekend, definitely gonna post those soon 😭🤣) I make sure I give it my all, as in 110%. I plan weeks/months ahead, I plan every single concept down to the detail, as in every tiny little detail, I make sure I’m involved. I may take time with some projects, some I started and didnt even finish or release because I was still trying to figure out what I really wanted. I dont know it all, FAR FROM IT (We live, we learn, we grow) and thats why I have an amazing team (that I just recently put together,) amazing people, friends, family and an amazing supportive man whom I love so much around me to teach, brainstorm and GROW WITH ME… Its not easy, especially when you’re meant to be focused on other big and important changes in life, when it starts affecting you physically, mentally and emotionally, or when people try bring you down, but when I think of the END GOAL, I FOCUS , CONTINUE PUSHING AND KEEP PRAYING HARD FOR MY PASSION AND DREAM TO BE REALIZED. I dont intend on stopping anytime soon either. I have a country to represent and so does everyone else with a passion all over Kenya and all over the world. Thank you God for this exciting, difficult, but promising journey. I know it will be worth it in the end. EP on the way… 🙏❤ INCHES : @phoinahaircollection
