As Rwanda’s music industry grows, more young artists are rising to the surface.

Pacifique Uzamberumwana a.k.a Paccy is among young Rwandans with vocal talent. She is eager to make her music career thrive.

The 19-year-old started singing when she was a little girl. She is determined to prove to her male counterparts that girls are not only good at house chores but have great talents they can showcase.

In what she describes as ‘fortitude’, Paccy says she wants to see girls becoming bold and exploit their talents.

The self-confessed queen of hip hop is a star in her own right; having featured on national television and various radio stations.

Growing up in Kigali, she always wanted to sing. And through singing, Paccy has become one of the most recognisable faces on Rwanda’s entertainment scene.

She has won some impressive accolades from both her fans and fellow artists.

Influenced by the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Tupac Shakur, Paccy launched into the top of the Rwandan charts with her first release “Ninzapfa”, a track she made a collab with her cousin Kayishunge.

The track became in vogue instantly receiving endless play on Rwandan airwaves.

This young artist sees herself as a simple girl that loves singing, movies and adventuring.

Paccy calls upon Rwandans to support upcoming artists and promote the local music industry.
