RAW TALENT OF THE WEEK
BY: Lawrence Nachipo
Day in day out, the gender boundary continues being narrowed down in M-Dubz’ urban music circles. This week, EM’s Lawrence Nachipo gets you closer to another female gem in the urban music circles; Yana, real name Ipyana Nyondo.
Yana is an up and coming RnB whizkid who’s still upping her game to command the shots in the country’s urban music circles
Name: Ipyana Nyondo
Stage name: Yana
Career: Artist and Song writer
Yana started doing music way back but her professional musical career was realized late 2016. Since then, Yana has been doing music but with so many difficulties which included financial hiccups; a challenge that has derailed her marathon up the musical ladder in M-Dubz musical scenery.
As she recalls, her parents have been her major shoulder to rely on.
“No one supported me in my music, my parents were there only for studio work but their main point was to work hard at school first and focus on music later” Yana explained.
2017 is when she was signed under Martin Angels Entertainment. Since then, her music career has been so rosy. She has released several tracks which are enjoying music air plays in different broadcasting stations countrywide. And that’s not all, several songs are yet to be released by this gifted song bird.
“I have a number of unreleased songs this year which I will be releasing one by one, songs which I have worked with the likes of Martse, Angie, Stevie M Jay, Magga MW and Lawcast to mention a few” Yana said.
She made her remarks by advising fellow youth to work hard on their goals as well as their music career and also to focus on positivity.
