I’m a B.Com (IT option) graduate from The University of Nairobi. A high fashion model and a musician. I sing about love, I write about love. My musical style is majorly afro pop and RnB.

How did you get your start in the industry?

I’ve been singing since I was young, but professionally, I started singing in Hellen Mtawali’s band while in campus. Combining the experience with my modelling career, I managed to build a few connections in the industry. When I became ready to get into a solo career I called R Kay and recorded ‘Ni Yeye’ my debut single that can be viewed on YouTube.

What would you say is the message of your music?

Love, love, love.

What inspires you?

Hellen Mtawali. In as much as I love other artistes like Beyoncé and Rihanna, I’ll say Mtawali is my biggest influence since she personally mentored me.

What are you working on currently?

I’m working on a club song called ‘Zama’, it’s in a mix of Swahili and English with chakacha beats, and I can’t wait for you guys to have a listen to it.

Are there any artistes, both established and new, that you would love to work with?

Of course, Sauti Sol & Khaligraph Jones (I actually contacted them for a project.) And there’s an upcoming hip hop artiste from the coast, who’s also a good friend. He’s known by Ohms Law Montana.

Do you ever listen to your own music on your playlists?

Yes, of course.

Which stage would you just love to perform?

An MTV Music Video awarding event.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself as an industry influencer, a mogul and a mentor.
