VALERIE KIMANI’S “BAISIKELI”!

58347_valerie400.jpg

It’s been a while since real,mature music was heard in Kenya!Now, Valerie Kimani is setting standards in the industry both at home and abroad!It is indeed a breath of fresh air!Her debut effort”Baisikeli”, is  a masterpiece putting her on the same level as the likes of Zama Jobe,Thandiswa Mazwai and Kelly Khumalo(my personal favorites)!Valerie is a young, fresh, energetic and passionate musician. Although she only recently burst on the scene as winner of East Africa’s reality show Project Fame, this 22-year-old singer exudes the confidence of a seasoned international musician. Part of her winning package was a three-year contract to Africa’s leading music label Gallo Records in South Africa .Honestly, i have never heard someone brave enough to try something so expressive on the first ever release!Way to go girl!

She has launched the 13 track album which is bound to be a rocker for those who love afro fusion,jazzlike/ neo soul, mature kind of music .Can’t wait to get a copy!It surely is a keepers item!Holla back!
