Biography

Valerie Kimani is the stunning, fresh new face of world music.

Being the recent winner of the first ever reality show in East Africa Tusker Project Fame, Valerie’s energy, enthusiasm and incredible voice saw her walking away with the title of the best singer in the competition, and in turn secured her a three year recording contract with top South African recording company, Gallo Record Company.

At 23 years old, the entire experience has set young Valerie into whirlwind media frenzy and seen her become a household name overnight in her country. With her head firmly on her shoulders, the young star is as humble now as she was entering the competition and her focus and determination has seen her taking her recording experience by the horns. Valerie has recently walked out of the studio with a mature and sophisticated debut album – ‘Baisikeli’.

Recorded between Kenya, Uganda and South Africa, Valerie brought her songs to the attention of top South African urban producer D-Rex, known for his ability to create massive hits for artists such as Thandiswa and Kabelo (TKZee) amongst others. He added some subtle touches to her East Africa recordings and mixed the album. Closer home, Valerie has worked with the cream of the crop as far as producers and songwriters go within East Africa; the talented Eric Wainaina, Tim “Ennovator” Rimbui, Kanjii Mbugua, veteran Jack Odongo of African Heritage and the legendary Kassongo wa Kanema of the world-famous Super Mazembe.
