During the competition Rumbi was given the opportunity to work on her music.

She crafted her new song ‘Run, Run’ which the judges decided was the best out of all the participants.

The song was recorded at MU Recordings in Sheffield.

Rumbi will now get to shoot a music video to go alongside her track.

“The song is about people who are stuck in the prison system,” she said.

“About how the justice system doesn’t help people who want to do better for themselves.

“After reading about the issue online I found a real interest and wanted to explore writing from someone else’s perspective.

“I had to really push myself to get into the head space of the people I was writing about.

“I put myself into other people’s shoes and used my words to reflect their experiences.”

Rumbi was thrilled to find out that she had won the competition and hopes her success can inspire other creatives in Doncaster.

“I have had so many no’s during my career,” she continued.

“But we can’t use being from Doncaster as an excuse anymore - I’m guilty of it.

“We have the same access to online resources and platforms as anyone else.

“I think it’s time that we show people that we can do it.

“Believe in yourself and do what makes you feel alive.”

Due to Covid-19 restrictions Rumbi has not yet been able to perform her new single publicly but there are plans for a live performance in Sheffield later in the year.
