In 2018, Gracious Amani aka Amani G landed a Sh 2.5 million record deal after she was signed by Pine Creek Records. The young sensation who went viral after signing Alica Keys’ Girl On Fire, has also released her first single Sitasahau.
Pine Creek Records, which was founded 10 years ago and worked with celebrities such as Wendy Kimani and Anto-Neo Soul, will also cater for Amani G’s school fees, food, healthcare and security.
“It was before I started school, I was just a little girl. I was brought up in a musical home and everyone in our house sings. The speakers used to be placed under my bed and we would only sleep when it was on,” she was quoted as saying on Nairobiwire after she sat her KCPE exams in December 2018.
She attributes her success to PineCreek Records team led by Nduati. “My life and that of my family has changed to a point I had never imagined, which I highly attribute to that great team comprising Peter Nduati, Lenny Ngugi and my manager Damima Duffield,” she adds.
