Nikita Chepchumba Kering, popularly known as Nikita Kering, is a Kenyan musician, actress and media personality. She was born on February 26th, 2002 in Nairobi, Kenya. She attended Riara Springs Academy, Kilimani Junior Academy and Brookhouse International School where she completed her A-level studies from a partial scholarship, given to support her musical career. The young artist rose to dominance after she released her song “Tragedy” which addressed a mature audience on violence in romantic relationships. She also works fo Rhihanas Fenty as a Brand Ambassador
She started her career at an early age. In 2012, during an album launch by Emmy Kosgey, she sang to a huge audience, and was critically acclaimed for her performance. Afterwards, she signed a record deal with EmPawa Africa and was selected to undergo an international training and mentoring program. Nikita became a finalist during the contest, but was deemed too young to compete at the highest stage; nonetheless it brought her to the limelight.
Nikita later competed in the EmPawa Africa initiative which was funded by Nigerian artist Mr. Eazi. She was among the 10 finalists who underwent training on an international stage. She could not proceed further with the project as she was too young, but as her result, her talents were broadcasted further into the world. Her hit single “tragedy” released in 2019 was an EmPawa project and was sponsored by Mr. Eazi. Nikita currently works with Samsung as their East Africa Brand Ambassador.
Nikita is yet to work with some of the top musicians in the country but she has worked with elite producers. She has worked with producer Sofresh 254 who produced the hit “Nairobi” by Sol Generation. Her sound engineer Trevor Magak engineered and co-produced Sauti Sol’s “Midnight Train” album.

At the moment we don’t have any information about who she is dating. Nikita Kering usually uses her social media handles to promote her music and she has never shared any lover.
Umbwakni hit-maker Lil Maina has denied dating award-winning star Nikita Kering despite sharing a PDA moment on stage this past month during the Omah Lay concert, in which they were both performers.
“We are not. We are just good friends.” He went on to explain that that was a moment for both of them as spontaneous as it was, and she sent him a heart-warming text after. This was during the Sandwich Podcast.
“She texted me after and said she will never forget this. But, I have never watched the video because it makes me cringe,” said the comic rapper.
