James Ruhumuriza whose stage name is King James graces our cover this week. The 19 year old is on the list of the top ranking most influential R&B male artists rocking Rwanda’s music industry.
King James’s talent fits into a perfect general music strategy, and his soaring vocal talent is one to reckon with.
Singer/songwriter, King James seems so smart, so sweet, and so self-aware that he naturally fits in the celebrity clique.
He has made Rwanda’s music industry cool, again thanks to his talent. There are currently very many upcoming artists, but the King James deserves all the credit for adding that teenage vocal flavour.
He is not a stranger to attention, but King James’s ability to compete with the country’s most respected kings of R&B; the likes of Meddy, The Ben and Tom Close (who’s currently the flag bearer) makes him a powerful force indeed.
King James, technically speaking is artistic, and this is evident with how his songs, including ‘Naratomboye’,
“Nzakubona Ryari” and ‘Inzozi’ have won him massive airtime on the radio stations.
He shot to fame in 2009, thanks to his ‘Inzozi’ which placed him to the limelight. King indeed.
