Kenyan singing sensation Nikita Kering' is riding high on the success she has been having the past few weeks and has been speaking out about how everything has been going for her.

Two weeks ago, Nikita was featured on the New York Times Square Billboard, something the young musician touched on yesterday during an interview with the media.

She started; "You know they know that with persistence and originality, authenticity, that there is a space for her in New York Times Square where she can be appreciated."

She also revealed that the one African artiste she would love to collaborate with is Rema.

"I've had a crush on Rema since I was in high school. Other than the fact that I have a crush on him, Rema is just so talented I think that he has found the most perfect balance between West African music and international music, and right now that's my biggest challenge."

Nikitas dream to work with the  Nigerian artiste might be a possibility if she keeps on making the records she has been at her tender age.

On November 21, this past month, she made news after being featured on Spotify as their East African ambassador.

"I’m just grateful Equal Africa Ambassador. Thank you Spotify Africa for the opportunity to represent this initiative. Cheers to many more wins," she said in an appreciation note on her Instagram.

When she was named the ambassador in early November 2022, she appreciated it as a platform saying it presents an opportunity to come to the same level as her male counterparts.

"I’m so honored to be the Spotify Africa Equal Ambassador for the month of November. Through this platform, we highlight women’s experiences, in hopes that we can achieve gender equity in the music industry," she said.

Nikita is also proving that hard work pays because the teen has also joined amazing African artists to perform at the Afrobeats concert courtesy of BB 1XREA conducted by the BBC Philharmonic.

The show will be aired very soon.
