Victoria Kimani_Consistency Remains My Priority In Music

Published

on

 Kenyan-American singer/songwriter Victoria Kimani says being consistent is her main priority in the music Industry so to achieve basically the highest attainment, in aim of growth and sustainability of her career and as well build a lasting growth with her fans.

According to her, that has been and even become more currently because of the progress she seeks to make as an avenue of good repute among other things and as well, stay different from her peers in the Industry.
Speaking exclusively to Abeiku Santana on Okay FM’s ‘Drive Time Show’, Kimani said the only thing she thinks of on daily occasion with respect to her career growth is staying consistent in the game.
She said, “I don’t love parties, I’m that cool girl. I love music, love to write music, I like bring creative generally but outside of that, I have a life, I think sometimes people get so personal and more attached to their career and forget to have a life, have real life and do real things. I love spending time with real people. When it comes to accolades, am not much into it because these days, they ditch it out easily so I don’t really subscribe to accolades to be honest. Hard work, consistency and not stopping has sustained me to this level. I just keep on going.”
Controversies
Reacting to a question about beef making – what many term as one of the current source of securing fame in the music Industry, the R&B/Afropop singer said, “I do not subscribe to that.”
To her, it does not build a musician for a long term but does only for a short term which sound abysmal to her for any musician to think of placing all focus on such.
“The truth is that, I don’t subscribe to controversies, it doesn’t last and build a long lasting period for a musician. I think Ghanaians should focus more on the good aspect of promotion they do for their respective musicians. I know the idea that, the whole controversy thing works, but if the focus remains on what is happening in Ghana and the Industry – you guys sky is the limit. The saying that no publicity is bad, I actually don’t believe that because people have legacies – at the end of the day, you want to be known for something. I hear people do drama around and things but for me, it’s not cool for me”
Women Empowerment
On empowering women, Victoria said she believes the media can do more in scope of pushing for the songs released by women just as its done for the men for same attainment and establishment.
To her, the women empowering in Ghana is less as compared to the men because all attention has been highlighted on just men.
“Already African female artistes work twice harder like what the men do. The men can cough on a track and the whole media will be by his side, but the females can do the most amazing music and crazy visuals but won’t get same level of push. I will not say the African female artiste is not working harder, it’s basically left with the push from the media. We need same level of support and push”

The Republic of Indonesia Appoints former Musician Togbe Afrika (Paskal A.B. Rois) of Danye Sidzima fame as Honorary Consul Of Indonesia To Ghana.

The Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Rois TV, Rig Oil International Services (ROIS) Ltd, Paskal Augustine Broson Rois (Togbe Afrika) has been inaugurated as the honorable consul of Indonesia to Ghana for his immense contribution towards the development of humanitarian works.

At a ceremony held on May 26, 2021 he expressed his appreciation to His Excellency Joko Widodo, President of the Republic of Indonesia.

According to him, “the trust he has placed in me, to act in his name, for the well-being of the people of Indonesia resident in Ghana and for the growth and influence of the Republic of Indonesia” is one that cannot be bound to failure.

“Your Excellency, please be assured of my willingness to help build upon the existing bilateral cooperation between my country and the Republic of Indonesia. Please again, be assured that every interest of the Indonesian government in Ghana will be safeguarded under my leadership as Honorary Consul. Also, the protection of the Indonesian community in Ghana will, as it is, not be overlooked. It is in this vein that I have already created a WhatsApp platform to be in daily contact with them and collect data on each Indonesian citizen living in Ghana” he assured.

Indonesia-Ghana Relations

Assuring the attendees of his role to further push for the Indonesia-Ghana agenda to the highest heights, Hon. Paskal A.B.

Consequently, two years after Ghana’s independence, these two great nations entered into diplomatic relations that have brought so much benefit, to both parties, in the areas of trade, education, social culture among others.
