Gloria Muliro was born in Vihiga County in Western Kenya to her parents David Omale and Esther Muliro. She is the fourth child among seven siblings.
She attended Emanyinya Primary School and completed her primary education in 1995. The following year, she joined St Theresa Girls in Nairobi and undertook her high school education until 2001, when she sat her final exam.After successfully graduating from High School, she joined International Teachers Training College (TTC), Dagoretti for a two year teaching course. However, due to financial constraints, her results were held by the institution, forcing her to work as a house help in Nairobi’s Eastlands area in order to raise the fee arrears she had at the college. At her work place, she earned 1,300 shillings, but managed to diligently save and pay the pending arrears. Shortly after clearing with the college, she managed to get a teaching job at Maranatha academy. She worked there until 2010 when she quit and focused on her music fully.
How did Gloria Muliro start his music career?
Gloria started singing back in 1997 when she was in High School. In an interview with Nation, she divulged that she ventured into singing after she got saved. “…Way back in 1997, when I was in Form Two at St Theresa Girls I got saved and I used to sing a lot in Praise and Worship. I never thought that it would bring me this far. I joined several singing groups and it was through them that I gained more confidence in my singing,” she said.
She dropped her first song ‘Mwami Aletsa’ in 2005, and later dropped her debut album ‘Mwami Aletsa’ the same year. The album did well in Western Kenya as most vernacular stations played her songs which were mostly in her native Luhya language.
Despite her first album not performing very well, she did not give up. Gloria continued singing, with her major breakthrough coming in 2010 when she dropped her second album ‘Ombi Langu’ which had one of her biggest songs ‘Sitolia’ featuring Willy Paul.
Since then, she has been releasing hit after hit and has worked with several top artists including; Kambua, Size 8, Pitson, Ruth Matete among others.
