Determined and passionate about her craft, Wiwa hails from Mwea in Kirinyaga county and is special because plays the decks using her feet due to the fact that she suffers from a condition called cerebral palsy that has affected her motor functions her hands.  Cerebral palsy is a condition marked by impaired muscle coordination (spastic paralysis) and/or other disabilities, typically caused by damage to the brain before or at birth.

Speaking to The Sauce, Capital FM’s DJ Stretch said that although Wiwa is still in school and is physically challenged, he believes that she is really talented and has a great future ahead of her. He also added that the dj group is working towards buying her a new Mac book computer to help her practice the craft better since hers is a bit outdated.
