It’s very obvious that US-born Kenyan singer and songwriter, Victoria Kimani, is one hell of a “hottie!” Her killer curves and sumptuous jaw-dropping biological features put her ahead of the competition when it comes to attractive females in the Nigerian music industry. More so, the Chocolate City act has no problem flaunting what she has at every given chance. In a closed interview with Potpourri, she even expressed her pride in being seen as a sex symbol. She said;
“I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I am quite aware of that. Besides, why should I apologize for owning up to what is mine? At times, I can choose to wear Hijab to cover it up. Sometimes, I decide to flaunt it. I don’t even look at what people say because this is me and I try to be myself oftentimes.”
“It is people who look at me as a sex symbol. I think seeing me as a sex symbol should be for some people because I have not worn anything my mind did not accept. The way you see my dressing depends on who you are. If you are somebody who is extremely religious, the idea will be different. Dressing is a thing of choice. What others like might be what others hate.”
Having started her music career in America, the Kenyan singer always sought to come home to show Kenyans what she’s got. However, she spotted that Nigeria had a profitable market and that a major populace of the youth was very involved in music. Further speaking, she said;
“Before I was signed to Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest, I knew I had always wanted to come back home and do music that will be accepted in Africa as a whole. I knew that if I had gone to Kenya, it could be cool. But everyone knows that when you talk about music and entertainment in general, Nigeria is like Hollywood, compared to other countries in Africa. So I said to myself, I need to find myself here because there are so many talents.”
“So many people including the media are so interested in music compared to Kenya where less than 65% of Kenyan youths are interested in music. But here in Nigeria, it is like 70%. So when I was in the US, I told myself that I need to go back home and be a pan-African artiste; that artiste who will be able to move around the continent. So that was the reason for my coming here. I am so grateful to God. Almost three years into the business, I would say that I am getting closer to my goal. But there is still a lot of work to be done,” She concluded.
