Musumba is a 16-year-old rapper, singer/songwriter from Bradford, West Yorkshire – a practising Christian with heritage from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Writing songs and playing piano since she was a few years old, Musumba recently started composing and performing in a distinctive and unique genre, experimenting with the fusion of African rhythms, r’n’b vocals and rap.
Musumba's first public appearance was in March 2018 in Trafalgar Square at ‘Million Women Rise’. In November she was invited to support Brits Award and Mercury Prize nominated Kate Tempest at Women of the World Festival in Bradford. At the WOW gig she met her sponsor and mentor, singer/songwriter Vanessa Maria and soon started recording tracks professionally. Her début single ‘Pourquoi’ has been played three times by BBC Introducing on Radio Leeds, on Radio Sheffield and by Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music
