Dancehall is the music genre where Kenyan singer/songwriter Chess Nthusi found her perfect fit and her latest jam “No Entry” makes her a certified representative of the Jamaican rooted music sound.
Produced at Legacy Unique Sounds studios in Nairobi by Neevo, this upbeat tune it’s a statement of an empowered woman that is no longer accepting a world full of words and little actions.
In her lyrics, Chess has always had a special attention for women. Touching sensitive topics of the women struggles is a recurrent message in the Kenyan songwriter’s songs.
Grown as an artist in the capital Nairobi, Chess is at her 3rd single release after “I Am In Love” and “Give It To You”.
Her last release “Give It To You” was also remixed by a couple of international house producers and re-released under the US based dance label Kult Records with whom Chess has more music projects in the bag.
This new release comes with audio and video shot by director The Lioness. The visuals depict an underground scene of Nairobi where the woman’s character that Chess impersonate immediately transfer to the audience the message of her song. The music video is available on Chess’ Vevo channel, Boomplay Music and Tidal.
