"I’m not perfect. I have my weaknesses too. What weighs on my mind is the widespread lack of consideration for each other’s feelings, the bending of moral codes for selfish agendas, the basic lack of love in the world.”

Genda // Ahmed Nyei

Genda // Ahmed Nyei was born to Liberian/Sierra Leonean parents in Cairo, Egypt in 1979. Having a diplomat for a father meant a lot of travelling. In 1987, the family moved to Germany and a new chapter was opened. Genda has worked with artists like Nneka, with whom he has toured Europe on several occasions, most recently on the “Soul Is Heavy Tour” as support act with his band; or such as Sammy Deluxe, with whom he collaborated on the Child Soldier Project.

By being exposed to different realities and perspectives, Genda has matured over the years, both professionally and personally. Some may say that he can be a bit provocative or sharp-tongued, but only because he sets himself high standards in terms of values. Through it all however, he has not lost sight of maintaining a sense of humility.
