Born Victoria Kimani in Los Angeles, California. Victoria has made a name for herself on a global platform. The unique fusion of African Pop Music and Contemporary R&B is just one of the many ways Victoria is paving a platform for up and coming Afro Pop Artists.

Victoria is a strong activist on the integration of more African Talent across media coverage. Victoria Kimani has utilized her voice and talent to speak at the United Nations back in 2017, touching upon topics such as Female Inclusion as well as giving a Voice to the Youth.
