To bring music streaming into the hearts and minds of Africans throughout the continent, Jocelyn Muhutu-Remy, the talented Franco-Rwandan media figure raised in Addis Ababa, summons her cosmopolitan experience to achieve the many goals she's both accomplished and sought to realise at Spotify.

At an age when her classmates were either playing with their friends or enjoying children’s books, Jocelyn Muhutu-Remy was busy relaying diplomatic reports to her mother, then a secretary at the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the African Union’s ancestor.
