Kamila was born and raised in the heart of Kingston, Jamaica into a family of musicians. With both her parents being lead singers of the Reggae Band, Chakula, it was only natural that Kamila was introduced to entertainment before she even walked the earth.
At the age of eighteen Kamila was awarded a full scholarship to attend a multi international school in Norway where she studied Norwegian and obtained an International Baccalaureate (IB) degree. At the end of her two years in Norway her family moved to Tanzania, Africa where she took it upon herself to learn the language Kiswahili, which is by no coincidence the origin of her birth name, Kamila. Kamila in English translates to ‘Perfection’. Kamila is however, the first to say she is far from perfect with her humble presence but what she will admit is that she is obsessed with the journey towards perfection.
Kamila then received another scholarship to Stanford University in California where she majored in Communications and minored in French and Spanish. Kamila’s thirst for first hand knowledge of different cultures also took her on a four-month study abroad program to Santiago, Chile where she solidified her Spanish speaking abilities.
In the summer of 2008 members of the “Onstage” team ran into Kamila who was on her way to the gym, oblivious to their audition process to find a new host. Walking in the path of destiny Kamila landed the summer job with Onstage and was immediately put on air! Upon graduating from Stanford University Kamila returned home to Jamaica to work fulltime with “Onstage”as a TV presenter/producer” and in her short time as Co-host Kamila has made appearances on international projects such as Irie Jamboree and the International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA) in New York. In addition to her weekly appearances on “Onstage”, Kamila has worked on special projects such as the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, Reggae Sumfest and the EME Award’s show.
