Travelling around the world at a tender age sparked Nicole's interest in music. Her fate with music was sealed when the internationally renowned group Bonny M. visited them at home while living in Germany. Her parents enrolled her at the Little Theatre Club in Mombasa where she learnt ballet and always made sure she went to bed with either Peabo Bryson or Toni Braxton playing on the radio. Her mother and aunt would also voice train her and her sisters each sunday afternoon by making them sing hymns and learn how to harmonize. Nicole's love for dancing began from the first moment she heard Lingala music. Due to this, she won various children's dancing competitions. She started taking piano lessons at the age of five and got her first ever Casio keyboard aged six, which she still possesses to this day.

Constant encouragement made her start writing short songs and poems and she had somewhat mastered songwriting by the time she was ten years old. Nicole wrote songs, acted in plays and was part of the school choir while in high school and was also part of a girl group called 'Digital Sisters' though the group soon disbanded. Nicole then joined her family in London where she became a TKSPIN master of movement dance apprentice that saw her hone her street hip hop dancing and choreography skills. Presenting her own show on Goldsmiths University of London's Wire Radio, cemented Nicole's passion for all things creative and media related.

After taking a few years away to focus on improving her production and live sound skills that saw her doing sound in some of the world's biggest venues such as The O2 Arena and Wembley Arena, and seeing her become a certified audio engineer, Nicole is now back and ready to make great music and share it with the world.
