To some, songs are simply a form of art created for people to enjoy. But for artists like Sedy Djano, who have dedicated themselves to the craft, making music is much more than that. In fact, the talented musician has made sure that all his compositions transcend entertainment by leaving a memorable and impactful message to listeners.
The inspiring individual is a singer and songwriter from Rwanda but is now based in the United States. He has always been passionate about pursuing a career in the music scene, but unlike other artists who only make songs that they feel would become popular, his creations focus on having meaning and influencing and encouraging people.
What motivated him to take on this extraordinary path was his past experiences. As someone who has had to weather extreme adversities since childhood, he knows how difficult it can be to find hope and keep going. Because of this, the visionary has committed to use his talent to change lives. “I always wish to see people happy, and I love to share a little that I have with those in need,” the remarkable man said.
Even though Sedy went through so many grueling challenges, he remained optimistic. Looking back on his journey, he generously shared, “What I went through at a young age made me who I am today. After my father passed away, my family became very poor right away! I started caring for my mom and my sisters when I was ten. At only 14 years of age, I was separated from my family, and I became homeless! Street life almost took my life away, but God gave me another chance to live!”
Motivated by his story, he has written several tracks and singles uplifting audiences, such as “Be Kind.” Most recently, he dropped the single “Riratse,” which tackles the relevant issue of homelessness. But, more importantly, it gives others an insight into the incredible community and camaraderie present among homeless people.
Because of his amazing songs and admirable advocacy, Sedy has gained a massive following on social media. His Instagram account has over 35,000 followers, while more than 21,000 people have subscribed to his YouTube channel. Aside from his impressive accomplishments as an artist, he is also an actor, film writer, and director. He is also the founder of the Be Kind Family, an organization dedicated to charity work.
Through his outstanding songs, Sedy has proven that music is an excellent avenue that helps bring inspiration and positivity. Moving forward, the artist intends to continue his legacy of bringing happiness to other people. He also plans to make more songs that have captivating melodies and impactful lyrics that champion his message of love and hope.
Finally, when asked to share a valuable piece of advice with his fans and followers, the artist meaningfully said, “When life gets tough, you be tougher. When you feel like you’re about to give up, don’t! Because you’re only one step away from victory.”
