CR: Who is Knowless?

My mum is the one who inspired me to sing because I used to see her singing.

Knowless: I have two albums. The first one is called Komeza which means “to continue.” It has 12 songs and the second one is called Nzabampari which means I will be there and it has ten songs. My first studio song is called Nyumva meaning “listen to me.”

CR: How would you describe the Rwandan music industry?

Knowless: What I can say is that the industry in Rwanda is growing at a higher rate; the musicians have talent, young and determined.

There is competition among musicians which is a sign that the industry is growing.

I even have a concert in Kigali next week.

CR: Why is it that most of your songs rotate around the love theme? What inspires you to sing about love?

Knowless: It is not that I sing about love only, but what I can say is that God is love and love is something good that every one experiences. So if I sing about love, I will be reaching everyone’s heart. I also have traditional songs.

CR: What’s your assessment of the Ugandan music industry?

Knowless: I don’t know much about the Ugandan music industry but what I can say is there is a lot of unprofessionalism in the industry because the top musicians abuse each other which is not good. But I like Ugandan music. It is good.

CR: Which musicians from Uganda would you like to be on stage with?

Knowless: In Uganda, I like Juliana Kanyomozi, Jose Chameleone and Vampos. But I like Juliana most because she has a nice voice and she sings very well. I like her music.

CR: Who is your role model?

Knowless: My role model is a musician from Rwanda, she is called Sesire Kayirebwa. Her music is nice and inspirational. I also like Brandy.
