Nyiri Sam


Hello! My name is Patience Nyiri Samuel, Nyiri Sam for short. I am 24 years of age from Jos, Nigeria, in west Africa.
I have been playing the drums since I was 10, though I haven’t had any professional drum lessons neither do I own a drums set. I haven’t been fortunate enough to play consistently as I can go weeks without touching a drum set. As a result, any opportunity I find, I devour like a hungry lioness and play whatever that’s in my head and what I have heard somewhere. I can’t wait to be trained professionally and also own a drum set which will greatly improve my play, in short, I need mentorship.

This is my First time on the ‘Hit like a Girl Contest. I chose the song “Not lucky, I’m loved” by Jonathan McReynolds at the end of my video entry because it reminds me of how blessed and loved I am, and it inspires me to share my gift, life and story with the world.
I am passionate about playing the drums because of the Joy and ‘crazy’ feeling I derive from expressing myself on this beautiful and dynamic instrument. Lastly, I am grateful to Topsticks through whom I found out about the contest, and grateful for the privilege to participate in this year’s edition. Thank you.
