In an interview, he narrated his music journey as quoted below; “
The inception of my name Rotadee is an abbreviation where “rota” is the short type of rotating or movement, which implies my vision of spreading the gospel through music. “Dee” represents my first name, Dennis.
Other than music I’m extremely energetic about print and communicate reporting. Juggling my scholastic work with music isn’t so difficult since I go to night classes which enables me to concentrate on my music during the day.
I made my presentation into the business in 2014, an overambitious young fellow straight from secondary school, wanting to get enormous scale airplay on all real radio and TV stations and right away win grants. This provoked me to move from a little town in Machakos County to Nairobi in a quest for my fantasies. My desires and aspirations were subdued when I was fleeced of all my cash by some con makers. It was a battle getting airplay for my presentation track. I later enjoyed a reprieve to reexamine and comprehend why I was getting into gospel music.
The arrival was difficult. I fell into discouragement as I tried to reconfigure my bearing in music. This prompted a fractional loss of motion of my face, a condition called facial nerve paralysis. ”
“All my music attempts became numb for an entire year. I believed I could never blast once again into the scene. In 2015, I had the option to backtrack my way back to music, more astute, progressively develop and with sensible aspirations. From that point forward I have become more grounded continuously. My fantasies are presently becoming all-good and there is want to acknowledge even the best ones.
One of his recent tracks “Reality” is a reminder to all individuals over the world that God isn’t a legend or only a story in the Bible. He’s a reality now as He was in the seasons of Moses. God is genuine and adoring and thinks about your need.
The Word of God is the thing that motivates my music; His guarantees to humankind and my very own background. I utilize every one of my tunes as roads”
