Pine Creek Records is pleased to announce the official signing of Amani Gracious; the melodious 13 year old from Githurai that took Kenya and the world by storm via her viral video of her reciting ‘Girl on fire’ by Alicia Keys. The official signing took place earlier this evening at the Capital Club in Nairobi and was graced by Pine Creek Records founder Mr. Peter Nduati. The young songstress will go by the stage name ‘Amani G’ and is set to shoot a video for her first single ‘Sitasahau’ on Saturday 14th July 2018. The 13 year old songstress will benefit from the 2 year deal with a minimum pay of Ksh. 2.5 Million with no limit on the upside. With her being a minor she cannot sign a work contract and will therefore benefit from a trust that is set up by her legal guardian (Mother) Christine Ambuso and Peter Nduati. Pine Creek Records has taken care of her general upkeep that includes school fees, healthcare, housing, food, clothing and security. Amani Gracious is from a humble background and this opportunity will enable her and her family get a better life. Amani G was raised by her single mother since her father abandoned them at a tender age of 6. Her mother has been by her side and has helped her cope and get through her new found fame. The labels main focus is completion of her EP and enabling Amani to complete her Standard 8 studies. The label will then secure a good High School for her as they work on completion of her album. Speaking at the signing event Amani G expressed her gratitude to her mother and Pine Creek Records. “I never thought a video of me singing would be seen by so many people including Alicia Keys herself. My mother has been with me though out and I thank her for never leaving my side. I’m also very thankful to Pine Creek Records and Peter Nduati for helping me and my family get a better life through my singing. I hope the songs I release in future will be loved by Kenyans and the world.” Said Amani during the announcement event. “Amani G is a very talented and fantastic young girl. It’s very evident that her vocal capabilities are beyond amazing. She was recognized by an international superstar, Alicia Keys and I took it upon myself to find her and give her a platform for her to showcase her talent to the world. Her first record Sitasahau is ready and we are shooting the
video tomorrow with Young Wallace. I just hope Kenyans can see and appreciate her incredible talent.â€? Said Pine Creek Records Founder Mr. Peter Nduati.
