For starters, she could not find a salon to do her hair in the country and was left with no other choice but to depend on YouTube vlogs to care for her African hair and that is how her journey into content creation started.
Wendy also shared that the biggest culture shock she experienced is lacking the presence of friends and family.
For her, she had to start over with majority white friends and dearly missed her mother. She also felt alone after she gave birth to her son as the Kenyan culture of friends and family looking after a woman who has just given birth was lost.
For her, she yearned for the tradition in which a mother and friends would bring her plenty of food and offer a helping hand around the house once given birth.
Wendy Kimani also shared that her comeback is now final as she does not plan to step out of music again unless because of unavoidable circumstances.
The songbird revealed that the reason she had to step back was as a result of the family as she was married and then had a baby and relocating to a foreign country she had her step back for some time to organize herself.

Wendy also says she is open to sharing more than hair content on her YouTube channel and will also talk about life in the Netherlands on her vlogs.
She is currently comfortable in the country as she has made a lot of Kenyan friends there who make her feel at home.
She also promises to release more music and a virtual live performance for her new song ‘Pagawisha’ as she cannot jet out of the county because of the strict COVID restriction in the country with approximately 10,000 new infections daily.
She, however, reveals that she will be releasing another single after Pagawisha.
