KE: Suzanne Gachukia to release Zannaziki Allstars Album

Suzanne Gachukia

We all know her as the music icon that dropped some of the euphoric sounds we grew up listening to. The soundtracks of most people’s youth.The Kenyan music industry credits some of it’s success to the hardwork and hustle of Suzanne Gachukia among other industry greats.

Well, she has been on a musical hiatus and that is because she got married to Kenyan diplomat, Richard Opembe the Ambassador to Ireland.

So, how is life as a diplomat’s wife?

“It has its challenges. After being a self employed business woman, waking up and not having the studio to go to every morning was – different!” Suzanna told The Star’s Word Is.

Adding, “In many ways, it has similarities to the entertainment world – you always have to be aware that people are watching you and judging your brand – in this case Kenya – by your behavior.”

Suzanna has a new music project dubbed Zannaziki All Stars VOL I. set to be released on March 28.  Read more

Kenya’s leading boy band Sauti Sol has accused the government of stealing an idea they mooted over a year ago. The project, “Studio Mashinani” is a series of digital studios to be put up in all the 47 counties in the country to provide accessible recording studios and self-employment opportunities for young artists.

Last week, Studio Mashinani was launched by the cabinet secretary in the Information and Technology ministry, Joe Mucheru. The CS said in addition to the five ready studios in Mombasa, Machakos, Nairobi and Kisumu, the programme will be rolled out in all counties.

“The studios will be dedicated to critical content creation for use by the various media houses, which are required to carry 40% local content,” said Sammy Itemere, the permanent secretary for broadcasting and telecommunications.  Read More..
