The Tanzanian-Zambian artist Kriticos is up next in our Unjudged series. Besides being a popular artist in East Africa, he is a young and ambitious entrepreneur who isn’t afraid of starting new discussions and uses his platform to talk about topics close to his heart. His determination to make a positive change in the world is infectious and doesn’t only stimulate his own creativity. He is a front-runner and will undoubtedly inspire more people in the future.
“My name is Kriticos. I am a spirit connected to the source, but you see me as the body you see in front of you. I am a human being trying to do as much as I can before I die,” the artist declares, and all of that is true: he makes eclectic songs, co-organized the first BLM protest in Brussels, and opens conversation during his book clubs.
