Kenyan music superstar Nikita Kering just revealed that winning a Grammy Award is no longer top of her bucket list.
According to the 21-year-old she used to obsess over the international music award but as she is growing older she isn't as enthusiastic about it as she used to be in the past.
Nikita made the revelation in a recent interview where she opened up about learning that there is more to life than the musical accolade. Although a Grammy is the highest form of an award that an artist can get.
The musical siren highlighted that as she grows older, she has learned that there are more important things to accomplish and achieve other than winning a Grammy.
“You see winning the Grammy is one of my dreams but as I grow older, I realize there is a lot more to life than a piece of metal.
I have started to learn that, it’s not about the Grammy itself but rather the doors that are going to open for other Kenyans and African acts out there and that’s what I am really looking forward to,” voiced the "Ex" hitmaker.
According to the young lady, her greatest desire is to see her fellow talented Kenyan artist get to the top as well as in general help other African talents rise through their musical talents to stardom.
In short, African to the world and not just a singular person.
The two-time Afrimma award winner is a big deal and with such a heart she just keeps on getting bigger.
Just the other day she received a plaque from audio streaming service Boomplay for amassing over three million streams on the platform
Nikita who has been in the limelight ever since she was a kid recently received one of the biggest platforms an upcoming international artiste can get, taking to the BBC Radio 1Xtra live stage for a performance of her hit song Ex.
And back in November, last year the 21-year-old was over the moon after Spotify featured her on a Times Square billboard in the heart of New York City.
Taking to her Instagram page Nikita celebrated the milestone humbly as she prayed for more wins.
"I’m just grateful #equal Africa Ambassador. Thank you @spotifyafrica for the opportunity to represent this initiative. Cheers to many more wins." wrote the songstress.
A few other Kenyan artists such as Sauti Sol, Khaligraph, Bahati, Muthoni Drama Queen, and Tanasha have also been featured on billboards across New York.
