History and background of Christina Shusho:
Christina Shusho started her life humbly with beginnings as a cleaner in a church until she discovered her untapped musical talent ten years ago. Born in Kigoma in Tanzania to a family of born-again Christians and an upbringing steeped in religion she found her own salvation at an early age.
Her schooling was in Kigoma and later she was married in Dar-es-Salaam to John who is a preacher and today they are blessed with three lovely children. Christina graduated from working in the church to joining the church choir where further down the line she was inspired to go solo. Christina sang her own music and songs with the dream and aspirations of releasing her own album.
From working in the church, she later joined the church choir which inspired her to try and sing her own solo piece. She then went solo and wrote her songs in the hope that she would release her own solo album someday. Songs that made Christina Shusho famous are:
- Her first album was ‘Kitu gani kinitenge na upendo wa Bwana’– this was mostly sold in Tanzania fast gaining local popularity.
- Thereaftershe released both ‘Unikumbuke’ and ‘Nipe Macho’ which together made up a total of 34 well accepted songs.
Of special interest is that Christina is not only a talented musician but she is also a model and owns her own modeling agency – with a belief that beauty should be both from within and without.
