The singer went on to thank the ODM party leader Raila Odinga, for choosing young person to represent her community.
Asige went on to congratulate her counterpart Nickson Ochieng' who was also nominated to represent persons living with disabilities in parliament.
"This week Hon. Raila Odinga chose to leave no Kenyan behind - no matter their ability or disability. I consider this Senate nomination by Baba and ODM to be an honour and count this as a win for the communities I represent," she wrote.
Asige added that the nomination was a win for women in society.

"I am incredibly grateful to my lifelong support system, from family, friends, and to my #Wafuasi who have never ceased to believe in me," she said at the time her departure was announced.
"God makes me smile every time He reminds me that hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. Always by Faith not by sight, Crystal Asige," she finished.
