Zambian-born Limerick-based rapper-singer-poet scooping the prestigious Album of the Year gong at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize awards


Fast-rising Limerick star Denise Chaila has been making waves in the music industry since the release of her infectiously catchy chart-topping hit single, Chaila, which was released last summer.

Just mere months later, her powerful debut album, Go Bravely, lit up the music scene, with many praising the talented artist for her flowing lyrics covering themes of identity, belonging and sexism.

Go Bravely recently saw the Zambian-born Limerick-based rapper-singer-poet scooping the prestigious Album of the Year gong at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize awards, beating off stiff competition from the likes of Fontaines D.C., Róisín Murphy and Pillow Queens to land the coveted prize.

In 2016, Chaila joined Limerick rap trio Rusangano Family on their album Let the Dead Bury the Dead, which also won the RTÉ Choice Music Prize for Album of the Year 2016.

Chaila's raw energy goes hand-in-hand with her creativity and ambition. A master at seamlessly blending rap with socially-aware spoken word, it's clear to hear that her sociology and politics degree has been put to good use.
