Yes, you read right. The fun-loving and talented HBR presenter Amina Abdi is quitting music. This is a blow to her fans that had begun identifying with her music having been done music with Octopizzo, K-Letta and the fast-rising Jay A.

Amina dropped the bombshell when she spoke to Boniface Mwalii of Buzz. Asked what her future music plans were, Amina shockingly said that she does not want to venture into music anymore. Reason? Too much negativity. In her words, “I love singing but I don’t want to deal with all the negativity that comes with it.” Perhaps Amina is not able to endure the chiding from the likes of Cabu Gah and Kimya who have attacked her most recently (read the stories HERE and HERE).

 She also revealed that she’s leaving music to get on TV. “Well, I’ve been offered a role as a co-host for a new feature on MNet’s Mashariki Mix Show”, disclosed the 25-year-old radio presenter adding, “I’m really excited about this since I will be able to engage a continental audience.”

One thing is certain though; her love for music is unrelenting having grown up listening to music icons like Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, the late Whitney Houston, Joe among others. She also started singing at a tender age and eventually ended up doing music that has gain acceptance among Kenyan audience.
