A few weeks ago, Gracious Amani, the talented girl from Githurai took the Internet by storm singing to Alicia Keys'song ‘Girl on Fire’.
The American superstar was wowed like the rest of the world and shared the video on Instagram and wrote: "Look at this beautiful soul, shine!"
Amani was first recorded by a visiting tourist, Britt Chantel, who was equally blown away by her melodious voice.
Now, after becoming an overnight sensation complete with media interviews, the 13-year old was signed a 2.5 million deal with Pine Creek records for two years and has dropped her first single titled 'Sitasahau.
The song that has already garnered views on YouTube is about how she will never forget her past and will share her blessings with everyone.
The record label owned by Peter Nduati has the main focus of completion of her EP and enabling her to complete her Standard 8 studies. The label will then secure a good high school for her as they work on completion of her album.
As the countdown to his debut album kicks off, the comeback king Nyashinski presents his seventh (7th) solo single, titled #KEBS.
In Kenya, KEBS is an acronym for the Kenya Bureau of Standards. In this single, Nyashinski equates certain characters around our everyday lives to KEBS.
The lyric video was brought to life under the direction of Tonament and Sir-Nare, with visuals shot at Studio Zolani in Nairobi.
Nyanshinski goes ham on unnamed artistes and bloggers who have been circulating what he terms as fake news about him.
Among the ‘fake news’ are claims that he has a US based baby mama, that he demanded Sh1 million to appear on a TV interview and that he broke up with his Kenyan girlfriend.
