Among the notable albums that came out last year included one from Kina Music. Nel Ngabo, the twenty-three-year-old singer, released RNB 360 in December.

One particular song — which features a popular Rwandan rapper, Fireman — speaks loud. "Muzadukumbura" (meaning 'you will miss us') is a reminder of what we owe artists who entertain our daily lives: decent pay as a form of appreciation for the work they do.

We invite you to listen.

You can stream the album on Spotify, Apple Music, or Deezer.
