Bio

Dan Aceda started music in church, singing in different choirs including St Lukes’ Church and Nairobi Chapel. He started getting noticed, leading to his first record deal with Kijiji Records. Under the tutelage of musician/ producer Kanjii, he produced his debut album 'Suluwe' in 2005. This album featured works by Wyre, Eric Wainaina, Neema Ntalel and Richard Kasika. This was the album that introduced Aceda to the Kenyan mainstream with the hit songs 'Sanasana', 'Waache waseme' and 'Songa'.

In 2006 Aceda featured in The Mavuno Worship Project as a singer and a songwriter. He also featured in Eric Wainaina’s musical 'Lwanda-A ghetto Story' where he worked for 2 years, eventually rising to play the lead role in 2007. In 2008, Dan won two Kisima Awards for Best male Urban fusion artiste as well as Songwriter of the year with his hit single 'Shamba la Wanyama'.

In 2009 he featured in 'Mo Faya', the first Kenyan musical to be staged off Broadway, New York. His sophomore album 'Benganology' was released on the 30th of July 2010. In 2011, Aceda was invited to play at the Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi, becoming the first ever Kenyan Musician to receive that invite. Currently he is working on his third studio album.
