I have worked with Cynthia on a number of voice productions over the years and she is a pleasure to work with. She is one of my top female voice over choices for corporate clients who require world class execution. She is a professional with the ability to bring out exactly what the client requires in a script. I highly recommend her!

Cynthia is a professional and reliable voice-over artiste. She records quality voice-overs in English and Swahili. I have worked with her since 2012 when she was on the radio as a news anchor. She is always called back for repeat work because of her rich, authoritative and warm voice. She now has a home studio and delivers top-notch work even on short notice. Don't hesitate to work with her! You will get quality results!
