Light-skinned and sporting a huge smile, a young and upcoming artist entered The New Times head offices early this week for an interview.
Joyce Amanda, a.k.a Kitty born January 30, 1989, in Uganda, is the last born in a family of 15.
Kitty is talented in music. At a tender age of 12, she started miming at school.
The performance helped her gain confidence and at the same time develop her talent.
She is now in her senior six vacation and utilising the time to focus more on her music career.
Famous for her track “Kwemera”, Kitty has staged shows in several venues, including Kigali Serena, La Palisse Nyandungu, Petit Stade Amahoro, and the recent one at the School of Finance and Banking.
She gives us a brief insight into her career, and social life.
TNT: What interestingabout music?
JA: It’s through music that you can easily express your feelings towards something.
TNT: In your opinion how can the Rwandan music industry be improved?
JA: First of all, there should be a good interaction between the public and the artists. Rwandans should be proud of their local artists and support them, instead of criticizing them.
Also, the Ministry of Culture and companies in the country should support and collaborate with artists for corporate image.
TNT: What is your dreams?
JA: I am looking forward to developing my career and become an international singer. If all goes well, I’ll also start my own music studio in the future.
TNT: Do you have a committed boyfriend?
JA: Yeah (sighs). He is a businessman. We love each other and are intending to strengthen our relationship.
