Kenyan singer, Victoria Kimani may not be a household name in Nigeria, but she is one of the few female singers holding it down in the country. The singer has however opened up that she has not received any support from Kenyans.
The super-sexy singer feels that Nigerians support her more than her fellow Kenyans.
Victoria Kimani in a chat opened up that she has Nigerians to thank for the success she has achieved in the music industry.
She even did a tour around Kenya recently but locals were not so much familiar with her, she said.
Miss Kimani apparently posted the rant in an exclusive Kenyan celebrity group saying that some Kenyan deejays and radio presenters were even in positions to help her at one time but chose not to because they hated her.
Victoria Kimani is however more popular in Nigeria than in Kenya.
This isn’t the fault of Kenyans really. Victoria has spent more time in the US and in Nigeria than she has in Kenya. Her style isn’t that Kenyan as well.
However, she doesn’t think of it that way. She ranted;
I met a Nigerian DJ who used to play my music in the African clubs in Atlanta. Back then I used to beg Fully Focus to support me and play my tracks….but the Nigerian DJ is the guy who supported. He told me ‘Vee, you have a beautiful voice, do a remix to Ice Prince song Oleku…’. I did just that ….And Killed it…. He sent it to thousands of blogs and BOOM…… 8 MONTHS after that, I get a tweet from Chocolate City In Nigeria.
“They SAID they wanted to open a branch in Kenya…. And hired Angela Angwenyi ( who hated me from jump…..not sure why ) Altho she was at Radio, ehhh she didnt really pump my shit…. For some reason I couldn’t get gigs, ( banned from blankets…..not sure why) even tho Mtoto, Oya, Whoa ft prezzo & AY, Prokoto ft Diamond and Ommy Dimpoz was the littest thing poppin at the time….”
