After that she released Shamba Boy and by the end of 2011, she was a hit. Her songs were ruling the airwaves. She later released Vidonge, which she said opened doors for her. and started getting shows.
Reminiscing the old days Bien, who met Size 8 while they were still in High school during her show on NTV, said,
Saa zile show imefika climax Linet alikuwa anaingianga stage amevaa style fulani hivi… anaturn anatwerk wasee wanamuangalia tuu.
Her elder sister while speaking about her sister’s journey in secular industry, she said,
I was conflicted to watch her half-naked on TV because we (our family) are born again Christians and supposed to live according to the word. But when she used to leave and come back home… I loved her and didn’t care what people.
Size 8’s brother on the other hand said,
Growing up with Size 8 was very interesting.
I had never seen my sister perform. For me ni mtu wa church. One day a guy confronted me and told me ‘the things your sister is doing are demonic’.
The now born again Christian and mother of two said she used to give out her best during performances to impress her fans.
‘Nilikuwa naona sishake vizuri I need to shake more. I used to keep tabs on Beyonce just to be like her,’ she said.
I WOULD CHECK OUT BEYONCE’S PERFORMANCES AND GET COSTUMES LIKE HERS. IF YOU COMPARE MY SECULAR PERFORMANCES AND BEYONCE’S THEY WERE THE SAME,
Bien added that, ‘she used to bring the house down whenever she got on stage.’
