Artist Spotlight: Dan Q, rising star who has braved all odds

It’s rare to find artists from some parts of the country such as Turkana trying to make headways on the national music scene. Most of them give up along the way never to be heard from again.

It is for this reason that we have to laud one musician who goes by the name Danson Achila Ng’itira, alias Dan Q, for going against the odds. The fact that he’s from Turkana has not stopped him from chasing his dreams of being the next Kenyan superstar.

He developed interest in music when he joined secondary school. Dan Q thrust himself into the limelight when he released his first single dubbed Ananitesa in 2014. The song made him one of the most-sought after artists in Turkana.

In the same year, Dan Q was lucky to be selected by Refigah of GrandPa Records as one of the artists that he wanted to work with during a talent Search that was held in Lodwar. However, this was not to be as the record label soon disintegrated following the exit of the lead producer Visita.

Dan Q decided to keep chasing his dream. He has been doing auditions from 2016 up to date. He won a Tuma Award for Male Artist of the year and this gave him the financial muscle that he needed to record a song.
