In 1998, at the encouragement of a Christian leader- Pastor George Okudi delivering the message, Muro’s world was flipped upside down as the Holy Spirit convicted him of his sin and need for a Savior instantly; he gave his life to Christ and got saved.In 2005,Muro decided to use his gift of music and performing arts to glorify God and bring transformation to his peers, so he joined a church dance group called “Living Springs”, while he also sung with another rap group called “PROSPEX” which was made up of him and 2 other individuals: Don MC and Prosper who together recorded their first single “Why, Why” which was an HIV/AIDS awareness song that received good air play on radio. The group went on to record more singles like “all the Children Crying” ,”Coming Soon” ,Give Your Life to Jesus among others all recorded by Kasika Richard from Kenya
After a few years the group disbanded with each artiste going solo and Muro going on to record a few singles that so him break out with the single “Don’t Cry” on which he collaborated with Crystal Fabulous and the late Mac Elvis who was the producer of this single which caught like a wild fire playing on most radios and the video on most T.Vs in the country making Muro a star and house hold name .Muro has gone on to record more songs and collaborations with artistes like Robin San, Patricia and Mac Elvis.
