HAVING announced her entry on the local music scene with the song Iron Man, which topped the Zed Top 10 charts on DStv’s Zambezi Magic for eight weeks in 2015, singer and songwriter Wacheda is not lowering any standards on her newest project.
Wacheda is shooting the video for her hit single No More, and the behind the scenes images that have been released so far have caused quite a stir on social media. The images suggest that she chartered a private jet for the shoot, which should be completed within a fortnight.
The Livingstone-raised singer is certainly aiming for the top of the charts with the video of No More.
She misses the top spot it seems.
Her 2015 club banger Iron Man, featuring Cactus Agony, dominated the Zed Top 10 charts before she went on to win the RnB Video of the Year in the first ever CBC Television Awards.
As a follow-up, she released another critically-acclaimed female anthem titled Maliyo, a colloquial term whose equivalent could be the John Solye Ubwali phrase. The video for Maliyo was voted Video of the Month by various bloggers at the start of this year.
Riding on that, she teamed up with Mic Burner and DJ Cosmo for the much hyped dancehall tune No More.
Wacheda, who still considers herself a rising star, has been backed by brands such as Ster Kinekor Cinemas and Debonairs Zambia.
She has been teasing out some visuals from her No More video shoot, which have sent tongues wagging on what exactly she is up to.
Apart from being an artiste, Wacheda prides herself in being a wife, mother and a career woman. She was educated at Hillcrest Technical High School in Livingstone and thereafter studied ACCA [Association of Chartered Certified Accountants]. She is now pursuing her lifelong passion for television as a third year Mass Communications and Public Relations student.
Engaged in some charitable activities as a member of the Lusaka Ladies Circle alongside other business ventures, Wacheda can be commended for making the most of her time and most certainly deserves to be among Zambia’s top artistes of the moment.
Wacheda believes all things in life are possible and encourages young girls with her mantra “You can have it all, you must!”
But for now, eyes are on the much anticipated video for No More whose glamourous visuals have kept industry players on the edge.
