Victoria Kimani Show
Chocolate City opened a branch in Kenya last year and that’s where she signed, but because the mother branch is here in Nigeria, and because of the type of music she does, it is necessary for her to be in Nigeria. So, she end up going back and forth. But back in Kenya, She will say that when she came into the Kenyan music industry with her songs and music videos, they hadn’t seen anything like it. But here in Nigeria, there are a lot of female musicians. So, it’s not new here and that hasn’t happened in Kenya yet. She think she is probably the first person to come back from the states with a brand new kind of hip hop music. “We are just in the process of creating an industry for ourselves in Kenya, but to be honest, I think it was like a big shock for a lot of people when I came back to Kenya with that video because we didn’t have those types of videos in Kenya.” SHE SAYS.
