Zambian born & bred songstress Kiki has finally released the long-awaited music video for her song “Catch Me”. The song is the title track from her debut EP which she released last year in November 2017 onto all major digital platforms and streaming sites including local platform Mvesesani. Despite being released so late in the year, she made it onto the top 10 list of Mvesesani’s best selling artists for 2017, coming in at number 7. All 5 tracks on the EP are written by Kiki and produced by one of Zambia’s finest music producers, Mag44 at Radio Café. It features collaborations with fellow local artists James Sakala & Cactus Agony, and serves as an introduction to her sound while she continues to work on a full album.
The music video, directed by Chloe George of Ufulu Films features a contemporary dance routine choreographed by Namaala Liebenthal of ‘Zoca Dance’, starring dancers Frank Sinyangwe & Diana Caceres. The dancers appear as a figment of Kiki’s imagination, and are a reflection of the lyrics she is writing while sitting in a cafe.
“It’s every director’s dream to be delivered a project that tickles the heart strings and drums up instant ideas. This was Catch Me for us. On listening to the song we instantly birthed the concept of a couple expressing a love story through contemporary dance, and fortunately we knew just the people to bring that vision to life. The ‘Catch Me’ video was rewarding to work on from start to finish. Namaala, Frank and Diana did an exceptional job of choreographing and performing the dance sequence, and Kiki’s scenes came together beautifully (despite two near-misses with the passing freight trains)!” – Chloe George, Ufulu Films.
