Her mum is equally a strong believer of Christian values and the two must have helped steer her where she is right now. Emmy has always attributed her triumphs in life to the only pillar of her life: God.
It is said that her journey in music started at a very tender age in her local church. By the time she was in high school, Emmy was recording collaborations with other artists. Emmy Kosgei also recorded songs with Maximum gospel singers, which further helped to sharpen her career in music.
