Women in music: Suzanna Owiyo - Singer and song writer
Suzanna Owíyo was introduced to music at a young age by her grandfather who was a prolific Nyatiti player.
It was while preparations were being made for the centennial celebrations of the city of Kisumu, that Suzanna was requested to compose a theme song for the opening ceremony.
Suzanna then decided to work on an album with Kenyan music producer Tedd Josiah. The album won her a nomination in the Kora Awards 2002 in the “Most Promising Female Artist category”.
