Victoria Kimani in "Wonka"

Watch Victoria Kimani's Provocative New Video For 'Wonka'

She's back! The Kenyan diva continues to up her game with a sizzling new single produced by Nigerian hitmaker Gospelondebeatz.

"Wonka" is the first official single off Victoria Kimani's upcoming new album, AFROPOLITAN. As with many of her major singles, this song is quite easy on the ears.

Ahead of the album's worldwide release on May 18, the East African singer does justice to the track with a steamy new music video.

We knew the Kenyan pop-star could turn up the heat but clearly we weren't ready for this!


The video features various raunchy scenes of the star in a jungle setting as well as some of her dressed up in a leopard print suit, seductively rubbing chocolate sauce on her lips.

We can't wait to see what she has in store for us in her forthcoming seven-track LP but for now we are going to enjoy another dose of this banger.

Nigerian star Simi talks about the successes & risks of this year, her thoughts on the #EndSARS protests, and how her husband, Adekunle Gold, inspired Restless II.

Simi is restless. It has nothing to do with the year she has had, in fact, she reaffirmed her status as one of Nigeria's most successful musicians with a single music drop, "Duduke," which enjoyed widespread appeal as the nation went into lockdown earlier in the year.

The 32-year-old singer's restlessness is a reflection of the organised chaos that has defined her recording process this year as she combined the rigours of being an expectant mother with an examination of her place in the wider world. It, more accurately, reflects her re-negotiation of the parameters of her stardom.

"I've never really been a big fan of the spotlight," she whispers silently early in our Zoom conversation. "I know that it comes with the territory, but when I got my big break and more people started to recognise me, I realised that I had to edit myself, my life, and most of the things that I'd do or say because I wanted to be careful to keep a part of me for myself."
