About this Episode

A storytelling competition, Tupac Shakur, and a 12 page business plan: this is Zamaera’s story.

Tune in to today's episode of On the Spot and to learn about how Zamaera was inspired to become a rapper and what it takes to succeed as a woman in the music industry.

At 9 years old, Zamaera experienced her first loss at a storytelling competition after making it to nationals. After that experience, her music teacher told her about another storytelling competition, which she won and became her gateway into the entertainment industry.

[1:56] “On the topic of connection, music does that for me. You know, whether it be with other women, other men, the younger generation[…] and that’s a thing that music’s done for me. It’s always been able to bring back to this human emotion, you know, relatability, no matter where you’re from[...]”

Being a musician is hard. Being a woman adds another layer of difficulty, but Zamaera didn't let that affect her. Her unwavering desire to connect people through her music allows her to truly flourish and succeed in an industry that isn't known for being kind or accomodating.

[10:42] “If you really want it, there is a way to get it, and you just can’t stop.”

Listen to her debut EP Z, available on all platforms.
