Queens from the South: Mombasa's top female showbiz personalities

KayChic and Ruthalia


Jovial came into the limelight after being featured on Genge star Jua Cali’s Jiachilie. The colourful video, which featured sexy ladies, a pool party and Jua Cali acting kingly, gave the artiste impetus to push her talent.

Vastly talented, the Unakosa Raha and Chanda Chema singer is set to drop the video to her latest work, Kila la Heri soon. Jovial, arguably the most promising Mombasa female singer is currently in Nairobi where she is getting a wider exposure and extensive networks to gain national recognition.

Sis P

One has to watch her hit Uchoyo, in which she features Dazlah, to understand that Sis P will go all out when it comes to being expressive. A confident, liberal and hardworking artiste, she recently dropped the ragga-fused Bullet Love featuring rising act Frankie Dee.

She also released the controversial but aptly project named Bonge La Bwana to local acclaim.

Serah Sarah

The smart lady, who at one point made ends meet in Dubai by being a vocalist, knows why she is in music and almost all her moves are well thought-out. After featuring Dazlah in the picturesque hit Cheza Kidogo, she would later release Kayumbet, a song that catapulted her to appearances on national TV.

The Ukirudi singer has also featured Nigerian star Ice Prince on Dance with Me. She is definitely going places.


She started off as a model who graced a number of fashion events before becoming popular and earning herself the tag, Queen of Mombasa. Ruthalia then started working closely with events’ organisers such as Omtere and then launched her events company that has been hosting many events in Mombasa especially around Likoni.

She is now the brains behind the Colour Festival event that had over 2,000 people during its debut last year. This is one girl Pulse has been following very closely as she is believed to be one of the upcoming entertainment personalities about to change the Coastal showbiz landscape.

Judy Mbatha

The Female gospel artiste of the Year 2016 at the prestigious Pwani celebrity Awards is the only gospel artiste in this list. The soulful singer, with hits like Nitayainua Macho and Unaweza Bwana, has managed to gain relevance in an industry that is lagging behind in the gospel frenzy that has taken over Kenya for the last three years.

She bagged the award that was previously won by veteran gospel artiste Christine Ndela.


Trisha started off as a model and on several occasions graced the Pulse cover girl page before becoming popular among celebrities some of them musicians who wanted her to appear as a video vixen in their videos. T

he hostess, or should we just call her cabin crew girl, has since taken advantage of her huge following and launched her events company that runs a number of club events in the Coast.


Just like Trisha, KayChic became popular after gracing the Pulse cover girl page after which she was voted the Face of Mombasa during a competitive modelling annual event held in Mombasa last year.

Right now, KayChic has made her network with the industry big wigs in Nairobi and Mombasa in issues to do with events management. She is one of the popular models in Mombasa at the moment and every celebrity seems to want to use her in promoting their projects.
