The Gifted Queens (GQ) is an all-female music group made up of five ladies signed under Ape Music. The Tunachachisha queens are: Evaline Wanjiku, Gladys Njihia, Gloria Songoro, Lynnette Mumbi, and Velmah Vugutsa.
The group has dominated the dance scene for a while now. They have also featured in many music videos and opened for many major artists at different events.

One of the most memorable moments for the group was when Jason Derulo’s management team reached out to them on Facebook and asked them to be part of his Shut Up and Dance video in 2019. The talented group traveled to Ethiopia to shoot the video and described it as a “once in a lifetime experience”.

Speaking about their work ethic, the Gifted Queens had this to say: “I think it's mostly about knowing what we want to do and how to do it.” They also admitted that self-discipline and focus have also played an important role in their craft. Apart from dancing, GQ recently dropped a new single titled Tunachachisa, a song that celebrates the modern, independent woman.
