Kenya: DJ Crème Bags Role in Pilot TV Drama

Spinmaster DJ Crème has been cast as a deejay with a Don Juan reputation in a new TV series.

Crème told Word is, "It's a pilot for a TV series about a superstar DJ who loves women and is set in a club. He meets this woman and the story develops from there. We shot it late last year with Janet Kirina and Nice Githinji who are co-producing it."

Crème, who is popular for his skills on the deck, says acting is "something I have grown around. I have never taken a keen interest in acting but I love challenges. As a brand, I have to reinvent myself by getting in music, acting and developing my clothing line."

Crème added about the character, "I can't say it was easy playing the character. Yes, it looks easy because the role is of a DJ who gets caught up between the chics he is dating but making it seem as natural as possible was key."

Kirina said the working title of the series is Glam. "It is ready; the editing is done and we will be selling the idea to TV stations in the next weeks."

Kirina plays the role of a fashion designer and blogger while Githinji plays an established event organiser.
