Lupita Nyong’o will shed tears of joy after what Kenyan artiste Cara Feral said about her

  

Cindy Abila, popularly known as Cara Feral, is set to release a new song, Born To Win. The sassy musician says her video, which was inspired by Black Panther, cost her Sh2 million, inclusive of costumes, logistics, location, pre and post-production.

Cara Feral

The music, which talks about conquering life despite the ups and downs, was shot and directed by local executive producer Witness Kisome and two other directors from Italy.

“WAKANDA IS A GREAT MOVIE AND I LOVE EVERYTHING, FROM THE COSTUMES TO THE CHARACTERS. I’M PROUD OF LUPITA NYONG’O. SHE’S AN AWESOME WOMAN,” SHE SAYS.

“REHEARSALS FOR THE VIDEO TOOK ALMOST TWO WEEKS, AS I LEARNED HOW TO USE A SWORD FOR ONE OF THE FIGHTING SCENES. THERE WAS THE MAKING OF THE COSTUMES, GLADIATORIAL MAKEUP AND HIRING OF A KARATE TRAINER FOR A HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT. WE ALSO HIRED A HORSE AND WERE TAUGHT HOW TO RIDE IT BEFORE THE MAIN SHOOT.”

Cara, who owns Majestic Trendz Record label, has signed one musician so far. “I’m working on signing more talented artistes. We’re trying to get links both locally and internationally,” she says.

The singer lauds Safaricom for the Songa music app and she’s convinced that it’s going to help many artistes. The singer is also looking forward to venturing into acting, and she says she’s open to any chances.

She attributes her success to voice coach Philip Tuju, also known as Filah.

“HE’S THE BEST. I USED TO WORK WITH HIM BEFORE REDFOURTH WAS STARTED. ALL IN ALL, I’M HAPPY WITH WHAT HE’S DOING, NURTURING YOUNG TALENTS. HE DESERVES CREDIT,” SHE SAYS.

Cara has done collabos with artistes from Zimbabwe, Ghana and Jamaica.

“THIS YEAR IS GOING TO A BIG ONE,” SHE SAID. “I’M WORKING ON DOING COLLABOS WITH SEVERAL LOCAL ARTISTES BEFORE THE YEAR COMES TO AN END.”
