Rwanda’s music industry continues to bear fresh talents from all corners of the country and the latest singer on the block is Diane Teta.
Teta started her musical journey in 2010 as a backup singer for many local cultural troupes and artistes.
“Am recording new songs both video and audio which will be out mid 2014,I will run concerts country wide,” says Teta.
The singer backs up gakondo group band every Friday at Mille Collins Hotel.
Teta tasted lime light in 2013 when she featured in a hit song dubbed Fata Fata. She represented Rwanda at The tusker Project Fame, years back though she wasn’t successful. Teta has sang as back up for Rwanda’s famous Kayirebwa.
The number of female artistes in Rwanda is still low, due to various challenges ranging from bad history of gender inequality and sex exploitation in the industry.
Rwanda boasts of various established female artistes like Miss Jojo, Miss Shannel, Paccy, Knowless, Queen Cha and more. Now with Teta emerging, it raises hope of women venturing the music industry more.
