His mother is his current manager. Trio has always had his brother’s support ever since he was young.
Balancing school and music
Trio Mio is still a student in his final year of his secondary school education. In a recent interview with Daniel Ndambuki, Churchill, Trio narrated how he balances school with music. When it is time to study, he takes his time and could sing maybe during break time.
One of the biggest and exciting part of the music career is when he perfomed at the Azimio. That was the first time he met with Raila Amollo Odinga, former Kenyan prime minister.
However, Trio has challenges. People everywhere have big expectations of him and could be forced to ignore some of them in a good way.
