Gifted in lyricism and wordplay Patrick Irvine says as long as he can remember he has always been writing poetry and
rapping. Born in 1987 in the county of Homa Bay, Patrick Irvine
grew up all over the country because his parents were civil
servants always on the move.
Apart from being gifted in music, Patrick Irvine has always excelled in his academics, a platform that got him into the School of Engineering at the University of Nairobi.
It was at the University that he took music seriously, became a battle rapper and partied hard until he eventually met Jesus Christ in 2007 and got born again, from here there was a clarity of purpose and he decided to answer the call to be an evangelist to the nations while still perfecting his rapping skills and using them also to declare the gospel.
Patrick Irvine released his first music album, "Emergency", in 2009 while still going under the moniker McMhubiri, the album was a cry in regard to the fallen state of man and his desperate need for a savior, the reception was beyond expectation and catapulted him into the limelight.
He released his sophomore album, "Pingu Za Ngono", in 2015. The album addressed sexual purity, healing and freedom from sexual bondage through Jesus Christ. Patrick Irvine is also authoring the book, "Purity & Freedom" (based on this second album).
Things have not always been rosy for Patrick Irvine, he was molested as a child, a predicament which he credits to a life of sexual struggles that he faced before being born again and briefly after.
As a teenager he struggled with serious anxiety attacks that almost hindered normal day to day functioning. These experiences have made him want more and more to reach out to those who are afflicted.
Patrick Irvine now works for a local chapter of an international charity organization in the arid Northern counties of Kenya. He also functions as a gospel rapper and evangelist with a passion to reclaim the lost youth of our generation and awaken the church from its lukewarm state.
He is married with one daughter.
