Founder & CEO, Chemi Chemi LIVE
Singer/songwriter, Producer, Mentor and Motivational Speaker, Crystal Asige has been working the music scene for over 6 years both locally and abroad. Largely influenced by Afro, Soul and Funk music, her performances in Mombasa, Nairobi and the UK draw an eclectic and zealous group of fans where she and her LIVE band ‘Chemi Chemi’ give them a show to remember.
Having celebrated her first number one with her single ‘Pulled Under’ in a UK-based chart show (2016), Crystal has her eyes set not just on success in Kenya or East Africa, but far beyond.
BBC events in the UK, St Paul’s Carneval in Bristol UK, NTV Kenya, Citizen TV Kenya, Galileo Lounge Nairobi, Tamarind Mombasa, Casino Malindi and a host of private, corporate and charity events are some of the venues mentioned when speaking to Crystal. She also shares her expertise, life experiences and personal development tools through high energy, thought provoking and inspirational talks with the aim of audiences adopting new ways of thinking and conquering challenges. With a Bachelor’s degree from the University of the West of England, Bristol in Film Studies and Theatre, working for industry giants such as the BBC, Disney and Adam Smith International and now moving from strength to strength with her company Chemi Chemi LIVE, she has done, and continues to do all this despite being blind. You wouldn’t have guessed it, right?
Diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease as a teenager, Crystal’s condition has taught her how to live by faith – not by sight, be fearless and stay humble all at once. Music became her tool of expression and healing, but most importantly challenges her to break through human made barriers and stereotypes which she shares candidly at speaking engagements.
Crystal’s 2014 EP titled ‘Karibia’ did very well in introducing her to the world and showcasing her fresh approach at Kenyan music. Now collaborating with producers in Kenya, UK and Germany we are assured to see even more growth from Crystal as a recording artist, writer and performer.
