N'Kashh, a hip-hop artist from Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo with a growing reputation, is putting the final touches to his debut album which he hopes to release in April.

He has chosen to sing mostly in French.

In Kinshasa, DR Congo's capital, he spoke to the BBC's Thomas Hubert, who started by asking him about the album's title track, Ame Seule or Lonely Soul, which he wrote in reaction to violence against albino people, such as himself.
