A staple songstress and rising star amongst Buffalo’s growing r&b scene, Kenyada Nikile is claiming her space as a deeply soulful act that can shift from classic 90’s r&b to more experimental sounds that integrate strong alternative and hip-hop elements. Her powerhouse of a voice, which we’ve most recently witnessed both live and in-recording, shares gut-wrenching pulls of sharp croons, distinguished storytelling, and feel-good melodies. With all the makings to be a great r&b act in 2022, and a super enjoyable recent project titled Therapy already making its rounds, Kenyada Nikile is on her way. Check out her brief answers to our questions in honor of #WomensHistoryMonth!
