It’s not often that you see a top flight dancer/dance choreographer cross over from his dance career to music. But then it’s not often you come across artist like Chiluba.
Fresh from conquering the dance scene having choreographed for the boy band Sauti Sol during their world tour and subsequent performances, the Nairobi based artist is set to take the music scene by storm having been around musicians all his dancer life as he has choreographed some of the top East African musicians.
Unveiling yet another hit single after his collaboration with Obinna in “Wololo”, all new “Lala” is a feel good love song with a mild touch of a dancehall vibe mixed up with little touch of reggaeton but still with some Kenyanness in the kapuka beat.
Chiluba has always been doing music just that his dance career took off before his music career did but in 2015 he decided to revisit his music passion which he had been doing in the shadows of his big dance career as part of an acapella group by the name Afripella which he founded with 4 other friends.”I felt like I needed to move at my own speed if I wanted my music career to take off”, that’s how he went solo with the aim of not only making a promise to himself that he will make great music but also establish himself as the best live performer the Kenyan music has ever witnessed.
Due to his fresh sound of afro pop sound well blended with some dancehall influence and his amazing stage presence, Chiluba has graced countless live music stages with his most memorable being his electric performance at a sold out Cake Art Affair concert.
Written by Chiluba, “Lala” was produced by Jegede of Pacho Ent and it’s visials directed by Mike Lolly P.
