SWEET LOVE is a special Valentine’s Day dedication to Habida fans and a strong comeback. Fresh off touring and traveling continents in the past several months, she says of the release, “This song is a different sound from the usual Habida sound because I have grown as a woman, wife and mother,” adding, "I wrote SWEET LOVE while I was homesick and missing all the little things that make Kenya unique like Swahili Food - I had missed Kaimati, Mahamri and Pilau, " concluding that home is where her heart and roots reside.
Hot on the heels of her return to Kenya, Habida will be setting up a music studio and management imprint in Nairobi, a process that will start this February. She hopes that this will be an incubator for emerging Kenyan talent. She talks about the inspiration and why she intends for her studio to fill a gap in the Kenyan music industry. “While accompanying my husband on his tours of duty in South Africa and Nigeria, I realized that good management is vital for the growth of artistes." Habida will also be building a team that will be handling various aspects of her brand.
