Wambui Katee, the beautiful voice behind viral song covers (Video)

Wambui Katee’s cover of Patoranking’s Suh Different went viral late last year. At the time of publishing this article, the song had 457,132 views on YouTube. That’s no mean feat!

But this does not come as a surprise, the cover was meant to gain traction from the get go. Everything was executed above par. From the instruments, the arrangement, down to her vocals. Nothing was out of place.

Her rendition was so good so much so that many people felt that it was way better than the original. And I agree, this is one of those few cases when a cover is better than the original.

The song’s success has made Wambui more aggressive in doing covers. In the last few months, she has uploaded covers of various songs including; Najua Hutaniacha by Makena, Hazipo by Nandy, Toast by Koffee among others.

All her covers are so well-executed. I’d dare say that she is the Kenyan queen of song covers. I’m sure you are noding your head in agreement.

A few days ago, she uploaded a cover of Harmonize’s Kainama and, as expected, Wambui’s rendition was so good that I had to hit the replay button a couple of times.
