Saint Stephen’s Cathedral Kenya, Home Of African Gospel Artistry.
Written by MaureenK on January 31, 2022
St. Stephen’s Cathedral is home to some of the best Gospel artists in the country. Mary Otieno and Kayamba Africa group are some of the artists whose music careers started at this church.
The history of the home of African gospel inspiration dates back to 1903 when the church’s foundation was laid, and timber with metal sheet roof structure was put up where the Kenyan parliament stands today. When Kenya gained her independence in 1963, the choir at saint Stephen’s church was tasked with performing their well-choreographed choral pieces to celebrate the special day that would forever change the course of the country.
