Self-proclaimed crown prince Dan ‘Chizi’ Aceda is back from New York after a month spent staging the political musical Mo Faya. With him comes the news that his sophomore album, which earlier this year had been postponed indefinitely, will be out in February.
The album dubbed Number 1 is expected to feature the hit songs Soufflé, Blackberry and Sweet Lady. It is also reported that he has featured talented acts like Eric Wainaina, Wyre, Suzanna Owiyo and Pam though Chizi is choosing to keep his cards very close to his chest.
The architecture graduate says, “I know that a lot of people are expecting my annual Christmas concert so I am working on getting that worked out. I will definitely let everyone know about it as soon as I am clear on how it will happen,” said Chizi.
Currently, the Saida hitmaker plays ‘Prof’ in Eric Wainaina’s hit musical Mo Faya. The musical based on a traditional Luo legend was the runaway hit of the 2009 New York Musical Theatre festival and is now showing in Nairobi at the GoDown Arts Centre till December 6.
