Gilad Millo was born on 27th September 1971 in Jerusalem Israel is an ex-diplomat.The former deputy head of mission at the Israeli Embassy in Kenya is apparently the “Biggest Pop-Star In Kenya”.
Gilad Millo worked as a journalist, he became a diplomat in 2003. Millo served in Nairobi and Los Angeles before leaving Israel’s Foreign Ministry in 2008 and settling in Nairobi permanently.
In his 20s, he was a member of a Jerusalem rock band, White Donkey. Millo was planning to become a professional musician rather than follow in the footsteps of his late father, Yehuda Millo, who served as a diplomat for 37 years.
But when Millo’s son was born, his wife, Hadas, said that “there’s no money in music and they need to find a real job”
One afternoon when his wife and teenage kids were away, Millo called up a music producer, M.G., whom he had met through a friend. Millo showed up at the studio with a song he wrote just “to see how it goes,”
He became relevant in Kenya when he featured Ex-TPF Contestant Wendy Kimani in their hit track,”Unajua” back in May 2015 where his Swahili Fluency and vocals awes masses.
On October 21, 2015, Kenya’s new pop “it” guy, Gilad, released an official video to his single, Sema Milele (Say Forever). Like his chart-topping Unajua (Do You Know), Sema Milele is a love song that has struck the right chord with Kenyan music fans.
His first footprint in Kenya was as a backpacker in 1996. He returned in 2002 as the Israeli government spokesman following the Kikambala terror attacks on Israeli tourists. In 2003, he was back as deputy ambassador of Israel to Kenya.
After a stint in Los Angeles, Millo left Israel’s Foreign Ministry in 2008, and settled with his family in Nairobi permanently. By day, he heads business development and public relations for Balton CP Group.
The song Unajua raced up the radio charts to No. 1 before most Kenyans knew what Millo looked like.
