Burundian, East Africa Singer, Songwriter, master drummer, Jean-Pierre Nimbona, a.k.a.  Kidum Kibido, is a Nairobi-based artist whose infectious tunes have hooked legions of fans in East Africa and throughout the world.  He is an Ambassador for Peace helping foster hope and reconciliation in East Africa. His secular but spiritual songs range from rocking zouk to acoustic classics, all featuring his vocal prowess.

 

Kidum Kibido musical inspiration started at age 10 when he started to play the drums. When he eventually came to Kenya as a refugee, he went off to Nairobi in search of a living and promptly joined a band as a drummer and singer; it took four years before Kidum Kibido started writing his own songs, which was the starting point to sharing his heart and passion with the people.  Since there, he has never looked back.

Kidum’s first album, Yaramenje (2001), established him as the Voice of Peace in the Great Lakes region in Africa. This followed with the hugely successful Shamba album, released in 2003. The 2006 Ishano album portrays Kidum’s vocal best with the rocking zouk Kichuna. With the 2010 release of Haturudi Nyuma - Kidum is granted The Kora Award (the African Grammy equivalent) for his songs Mapenzi, Nitafanya and Haturudi Nyuma.  In 2015 he released the popular Hali Na Mali album which includes the successful singles Mulika Mwizi, Kimbia, Enjoy and Hali Na Mali.

 

Kidum exhibits multiple talents as a composer, vocalist, drummer and arranger par excellence, although his earlier songs were recorded in the Kirundi language - he progressed to singing in Kiswahili where his spiritual and philosophical compositions became accessible to a wider audience.  Kidum’s journey to stardom has been inspiring because of his passion, resilience and hard work, overcoming hurdles that could have easily discouraged many, such talent and determination now finds the international artist Kidum singing in French, English and Spanish with his current band BodaBoda Band (translated as Crossing Borders)  performs throughout Africa & Middle East.  Kidum Kibido was invited to play in Edmonton, Canada at Folk Music Festival, one of the biggest festivals in the world.  He toured In Canada, Europe, United States of America and Australia. At everywhere the superstar plays on stage, his personality and talents attract new fans, and his songs touch his audience souls.
