Abbie Knights, founder of Kya Entertainment, has been around the entertainment industry for over 20 years. Always fascinated by “show business”, Abbie began her journey at the young age of 13 pursuing a career in music as an artist. Like many, she endured a lot of trial and error and missed opportunities due to lack of knowledge. After meeting with labels like Universal and Capitol Records, she continued to expand her network. Throughout the years she became savvy in creating opportunities for herself, developing her skills and understanding the importance of branding in the millennial era through social platforms. Although music was the dream, her greatest passion always lied behind the lens and helping others. "I’ve always shared an incredibly passionate and whimsical relationship with music, photography and self-expression”. Her goal today is to make an impactful difference. When asked about her purpose in life, she says that her hope is to be able to "inspire, and make a positive difference in the lives of others". "Kimani [meaning man of integrity] Media Group, is a business I started to help people create a unique way of expression through digital media”, “Voice Your Style” is a slogan KMG thrives on. “Freedom of expression is what brings character and beauty to life and gives a voice to art”.
