Niasony Okomo, world music rising star, takes Europe by storm

She is pretty, talented, energetic and ambitious and has an angelic voice. Not afraid to try new things and try her luck in an unfamiliar ground where many took their chances but failed.

With an under the skin getting voice the new Congolese Diva sings about her soul, which is torn between Africa and Europe. Her music represents an melange of urban Afrobeats, traditional Soukous and driving Reggae.
