What do you celebrate abut being a woman?
Well, I think humans should be respected no matter what colour, race, religion
or gender they have. However, I enjoy being a woman since it gives me the
privilege to give birth to new life.
What do you wish other women knew?
That they can’t be respected by men if they don’t respect themselves.
How do you express yourself creatively?
As you know I’m a singer. So I express myself on stage. But that’s not all. I
spend much more time with composing and writing songs. So often I sit with
my guitar at a quiet place and let my feelings out.
That’s how most of my songs were born.
How are you making a difference in the world?
A number of people think if life is treating them bad they have to remain in
poverty and can’t change something on this world. But I’m trying to prove that
wrong. I had no parents, I didn’t complete my education, I slept on the streets.
But that’s not a reason just do give up and accept this conditions. I want to be
an example to other young people that hard and honest work, being focused
and trust in God can change your life. It’s all up to you!
What do you believe is your calling and what are you doing about it?
My family and my music. I try to spend as much time as possible with my
When it comes to my music I appreciate the talent I got and want to use it in
the best possible way. Music has been my life since I was young and I’m happy
about the progress I made since then.
How do you celebrate where you come from?
No matter where I stay in the world, I don’t give up my identity. In my music
I’m keeping the heritage of my mother´s tribe alive. Most of my songs I’m
singing in Nsenga. To some it may not be popular, but that’s where I come
from and I’m happy to go on stage and share this culture with a lot of people.
What do you consider to be the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome?
I think I can say it was the death of my parents. It’s not only that they passed
away, but growing up and fighting to survive on my own can be really
considered as an obstacle. But I’m happy that I reached where I am today.
