Former diplomat turned musician Gilad Millo is currently riding high on the charts following his debut album release a few weeks ago.
The 16-track album is dubbed ‘Asante’ and is a summary of Gilad’s journey as a Kenyan musician so far.
The singer, who made his mark in the Kenyan music industry and beyond with the hit ‘Unajua’ ft Wendy Kimani two years ago, has now released a music video for one of the tracks – One Wish.
Gilad says he wrote the song in Lamu with the help of his son, Omer Millo.
“I wrote ‘One Wish’ in Lamu, sitting under the stars. I was there with my children. My wife was away studying.
When I got the first lines, my son said: “Let’s do it this way”. He’s a better guitar player than I am, he’s now at Berkeley College of Music studying the guitar. He’s featured on the song as the guitarist with Sauti Sol’s Polycarp. It was one of my wish come true to watch my son work with Polycarp,” said Gilad.
Sauti Sol’s Polycarp is also behind the audio production of ‘One Wish.’ The music video is directed by VJ One.
