Years after releasing their first duet Sindili Choncho, Wendy Harawa and Lulu have teamed up again to release their second collaboration I Believe.
Their first song together hit the airwaves 17 years ago and it became an instant hit.
In an interview on Wednesday, Harawa said she felt the time was ripe to record something with Lulu again.
She said: “I have come a long way with Lulu. From the early days of our music careers to where we are now, we have a better understanding of each other both musically and personally.
“He knows my vocals very well and how I do things. That is why he recorded and produced I Believe.”
Harawa said that Lulu is also the one who recorded and produced Sindili Choncho.
“Actually, I dreamt about that song before recording it. It happened the same way with I Believe. So, it also connected me to him so that we continue our journey,” she said.
Harawa said she was motivated to write the song now that she is a strong Christian.
“I look back at the things that I have done and gone through. And to see that I have overcome all, I am very encouraged,” she said.
In a separate interview, Lulu said the song made him reconnect with a fellow artist who has been part of his musical journey.
“Wendy is more like a sister to me and we have been like that since day one. Music has made us who we are. We have come a long way though we have been in different places,” he said.
I Believe is part of an album Harawa is going to release later this year.
