Nairobi, Kenya; U.S based Kenyan Rising Star Grace Wacuka has dropped her first single “Run Dem” off her upcoming EP- The I am Wacuka Project.
Run Dem is a reggae song produced by Johnttez Krucial. The video was shot in the streets of Nairobi and was directed by Grace Wacuka, shot by Nesh Maina, and edited by Borche Dimoski.
Speaking about the song, Grace Wacuka says “Run Dem was written when I felt I was on top of the game and so completely in control. Since this year has been hard for so many, I thought the song would be a great way to say ‘we still got this’ to the universe and everyone who needs to find a reason to dance,”
Besides music, Wacuka is a budding movie film actor currently doing her Masters in Acting at Columbia University. She has been featured in several movies, most recently, the internationally acclaimed “A New Christmas” that premiered at The HBO South Asian International Film Festival in New York.
Wacuka is set to release her EP – The I am Wacuka Story Project before the year ends and is keen on coming back to work with other Kenyan stars to shoot further film and music projects.
