Who is Victoria Kimani?
Victoria Kimani is a multi-award-winning Kenyan singer and songwriter.

The songstress ventured into music after completing her college education. She started out as a backup singer for established artists such as Mercy Myra. She had her breakthrough courtesy of a remix of ‘Oleku’ by Ice Prince. The success of the remix saw her get signed under Chocolate City.
In 2013, the songster released her first single dubbed ‘Mtoto’. The music video performed incredibly well on various music streaming platforms earning her immense success. In 2014, Victoria made headlines thanks to her viral hit song ‘Show’. The song elevated her music career and made her one of the most sought-after artists in East and West Africa. Although the singer had dominated top music charts with ‘Prokoto’ featuring Diamond Platnumz and Ommy Dimpoz, ‘Show’ which was an Afrobeat song is considered to have been her breakthrough song.

In mid-year, she released ‘Loving You’ in collaboration with Ice Prince then followed it up with ‘Two of Dem’.

After her contract with Chocolate City ended, she pursued her career as an independent artist. She explained in an interview she did in 2017 that she operated independently even while at the label. She, therefore, did not see the need to continue with her contract.
