VICTORIA KIMANI – SAFARI
Kenya’s fiercely sexy and talented Victoria Kimani, shares her debut album “Safari” with the world.
Ice Prince, Sarkodie, Bucie, Vanessa Mdee, Phyno, and khuli Chana… are only a few of the incredibly rich features of Safari; a Swahili word meaning ‘journey’. This is definitely a musical journey we are confident you would love taking.
Released on Monday 5th Dec. under Chocolate City Music, the album boasts of a rich mix of top producers in the industry; Maphorisa, Jessy Jagz, Mr Kamera and Panshak Zamani (Ice prince). We particularly love the well calculated excerpts from Brenda Fassie and Nina Samone.
In need of some visual assertion of the quality of #Safari? check out the official music video to “Giving You” which features Sarkodie.
We are very curious to know what you think, your favorite track on repeat perhaps? or just how much you love the album art.
