After an electrifying performance that left fans craving for more at the scenic Misty Mountain Lodge in Naromoru, popular Kikuyu benga musician Jose Gatutura toured the expansive ranch and instantly made friends with the camel.
It was not immediately clear the melody that Gatutura sang to the camel as they became friends an the “ship of the desert” followed him closely.
Gatutura shot to fame when he released blockbuster songs “Tuirio twega” (good food) and “Haha ni gute (this is lost) and has since turned out to be a leading crooner of Kikuyu benga music.
A household name among the Gikuyu community, Gatutura says his songs are popular because they are educative and inspired to offer good guidance.
