The multi-talented Kenyan artiste King Kanja has released a new single Cathy, featuring the soulful Ava Lov and Big T. This comes right after his successful showcase at 2016 SXSX (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 RnB producer Chucky Thompson, who also produced One Mic by Nas, among hit records.
“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, 254,” he said.
“The song is inspired by Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One, who I met and worked with through his mentor, the late Tony Washington,” added Kanja.
The music video was directed by 1ST Impressions and 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.
