    Patricia Kihoro gives emotional side of her story on why she can’t sing any more

    Patricia Kihoro gives emotional side of her story on why she can't sing any more 

    Singer and actress has shared why she can’t sing anymore.
    In a long post on social media, the singer who once wowed fans with her voice and music shared that she can’t sing after losing her confidence. She claims a friend made her lose her confidence.
    According Patricia, her friend trashed her voice while she was singing and she happened to over hear the conversation.
    Read a her post below:
    #TBT 2013. Rehearsals for a guest performance on TPF 6, four years after I was on TPF 3. The amazing genius @aaronrimbui was with me as I wrote the first song (What Not Not) that I ever performed to the public in 2009. A huge audience. Of millions. Phew. He was THE perfect person to perform that song with. It’s like he was in my head and could tell where I wanted to go with it without a word. His magic is a privilege. I was so sure I was made to be a singer. It’s all I could think about.

    2018. I get many questions about why I don’t sing any more. Why I’m wasting my talent. I’ve been mulling over this, beating myself up over it. Especially over the last two months. Especially after seeing Beyoncé. 🙆🏾‍♀️ ⠀
    I’ve had to think very honestly about what happened. I love to sing. I sing every day. I see a stage, I want to be on it. But a few years ago while working on a small commercial project, a friend I respect highly made a flippant comment about my voice that stung so much, I internalized it and subconsciously began to convince myself I wasn’t good enough. They didn’t mean it, they didn’t even notice. But I amplified it so loudly in my heart, it became my truth.

    A good friend and I teamed up to form a duo. It was going to be awesome and I was mad excited but then they opted out and I was shattered. I noticed all my artist friends collaborating on stuff around me, but never with me, and that reinforced what I’d been thinking. I stopped taking singing gigs. ⠀
    I focused on being a fan instead. There are so many dope artists here and my love for them is real man. There are folks who sing so good you feel your soul leave your body. I accepted that I was just not one of them. I stayed a fan and tried to kick butt at everything else. But even that, I question. Comparison is the devil.

    Life In The Single Lane. I love that little show of mine. But I told myself that folks only really enjoy the funny bits, and tolerate the singing bits. I could hear myself not giving 100% when I sang because hey, why bother.

    So what am I saying? I’m thinking I just face the fear that’s grown into this crippling monster over the years and just doing the damn thing regardless. 💪🏾Singer and actress has shared why she can’t sing anymore.
