Africa born, Kimeli has hit the jackpot by being signed up to Eros International’s music arm, Eros Music for her first Hindi single ‘Money Honey’.
Kimeli�۪s journey so far has been an international one. She has lived in various parts of the world including Nigeria, South Africa, India and England, and acquired many musical influences. She loves the exceptional sound of the voice as an instrument, and counts women as diverse as Shamshad Begam, and the late soul divas Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse – each unique and unconventional vocal talent – among her musical inspiration.
Kimeli was born in Lagos, Nigeria in 1993, living in Africa with her family before moving to the UK at the age of six. At 14 Kimeli independently began to write and record tracks in South Africa, with well-known producers DJ Jazzy D and Big Boi of Brown Suga Entertainment, which received airplay on Highveld radio, Johannesburg�۪s top hit radio station.
At 16 Kimeli had the opportunity to work with renowned pop veterans Mark Topham and Karl Twigg, who produced for British chart sensation, Steps, taking the lead in commercial pop band ���No Gossip� who signed to independent label Brown Moose Records.
