Victoria Kimani thrilled at new African collaboration

01 April 2014, 10:49

Nairobi - Local music star, Victoria Kimani, spoke about her involvement in a major collaboration by African musicians to promote investments in agriculture in the continent.

Kimani, alongside fellow Kenya, Juliani, feature in “Cocoa na Chocolate”
as part of the Do Agric. It Pays campaign together with 17 other artists.

The campaign is a brainchild of ONE, the campaigning and advocacy organization.

“I’m a huge fruit and vegetable person and I’m really big on natural foods. My brother is a farmer and outside of that I love the idea of investing in yourself.  I think agriculture is the way forward to be honest with you, not only from a financial aspect, but from giving back and providing jobs. I think it’s an amazing cause,” Kimani said.

She said of the collaboration, “It's crazy because everyone has their own swag, their own style and when you put all that together its crazy because it doesn’t sound purely Kenyan, purely Tanzanian, purely Angolan, it’s awesome.”

“This amazing campaign is all about investing in land and promoting farming. My little part is to collect together what everyone is saying their own individual dialect.  It’s an amazing effort and it’s all about ONE, so one love.”

The collaboration by artists was a continent-wide push to appeal to African governments to commit to spending at least 10 percent of national budgets on effective agriculture investments — a commitment they originally made in Maputo in 2003—and to do so through transparent and accountable budgets.
