Spotify Honours Nikita Kering With This Ambassadorial Position

Spotify has announced R&B artist Nikita Kering' as the Equal program ambassador for the month of November, just before she drops her new EP. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter follows in the footsteps of other female singers from Africa who have served as program ambassadors.

Spotify recognizes a new Equal Ambassador every month. These individuals are pioneers in their fields. Those chosen as ambassadors of the program are vocalists who stand out from the crowd via their self-assurance, compassion, and, yes, fierceness in their work.

All of these qualities have been abundantly displayed by the 20-year-old, who has already made a name for herself in the music industry and won multiple honors despite her tender years.

Muthoni Drummer Queen and Sylvia Ssaru, two more Kenyan female artists, have also been recognized as ambassadors of the program in the past.

Kering thanked the organization that awarded her the prize, adding that she is grateful for the opportunity to talk about the challenges women face in the workplace in the hopes of promoting gender parity.

Nikita, a self-taught musician who has been performing since the age of three, reportedly began her musical career by winning the titles of "Best RnB and Soul Artist" and "Best Female Artist East Africa" at the 2021 All Africa Music Awards.

She was only 18 when she won the 2019 edition of the awards, where she was also named "Best Female Artist in Eastern Africa" and "Revelation of the African Continent."

On Friday morning, October 14, the twenty-year-old added a new song to the series of her previous songs by uploading it to her channel.

Spotify's Equal Africa Programme aims to help African female musicians advance their careers and connect with listeners all over the world by featuring their music on a variety of Spotify playlists.
