The multi-talented Kenyan artiste KING KANJA releases new single CATHY featuring the soulful Ava Lov and Big T. This comes right after his successful showcase at 2016 SXSW(South by South West) festival in Austin, Texas. The harmonious and melodic CATHY is an ode to inspiring young women to keep at success and focus.
CATHY is produced by Grammy-nominated hip hop and R&B producer Chucky Thompson, who also produced One Mic by Nas, among hit records. King Kanja says, “I love CATHY because of the message. To my Africans and East Africans, I want you to know I ride hard for Africa and especially at home in Kenya, the 254,” adding, “The song is inspired by Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One, who I met and worked with through his mentor, the late Tony Washington.”
The music video of CATHY directed by 1ST Impressions was shot in Miami, Florida. CATHY shows the musical and personal growth of King Kanja and working with Chucky reinforced his growth as a recording artiste.
Super producer Drummaboy: “Bro, you got something special on your hands.”
Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur CEO & co-founder of All hip-hop: “I knew when I heard the music it was you.”
