phyPhyllis Mwihaki Ng’etich alias Phy is among the artists invited to perform at the 2017 World Festival of Youth and student which is underway in Russia.

The event officially started on 14th and is meant to go till 22, October.

The World Festival of Youth and Students has been active since 1947. In 1957 and 1985, the Festival was held in Moscow. The 1957 Festival in Moscow was the biggest event in its history uniting 34,000 delegates from 131 countries. In 2017, we expect around 30,000 from 150 countries to attend the event.

’At the beginning of the year I prayed asking that this year I’d travel internationally in regard to my music.The year took a different turn and nothing seemed to go to plan. It was only until a few weeks ago that this desire seemed a little over the top.Today I’m leaving for Russia with my wonderful team to perform at The World Youth Festival in Sochi Russia.

This will be my biggest stage yet because the festival has attracted 30,000 participants from 150 countries. It’s an honor to represent my country in a festival that’s been running way before even my folks were born in 1947.

I just want to say one thing, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is yours for the taking. Numb the loud of anything that tells you you’re not good enough, you’re not pretty/handsome enough, you’re not from the best background etc.

We owe it to ourselves to believe relentlessly in ourselves (even when others don’t) and to excel. That’s God’s intended plan for you. Happy Sunday my Philosophers.’’
