Vicky Sola - Afro-Brit Artist And UK Afrobeat Awards 2016 Nominee For Best Female Artist, Releases New Single!

By Osiki Ojo

Carving a niche for herself as an ‘Afro Brit’ artist, 23 year old Londoner Vicky Sola has been amassing kudos from some of the most respected names on the African pop music circuit including 2Face Idibia (2Baba), Omawumi, Yemi Alade & Tiwa Savage. She describes her music as international sound adding flavours of Africa with a British twang. I am proud to represent both my African roots and my British upbringing”.

Sola’s debut single ‘OMG’ entered the UK Urban Club Chart at Number 18 and remained in the Music Week Top 30 Chart for an incredible 7 weeks. Her new single ‘Broken’ is a romantic ballad featuring Moelogo. ‘Broken’ showcases a delicate mix of blissful, rich musical harmonies that are overlaid with strong vocal delivery from both Vicky Sola and Moelogo.

The release also includes a stand out dance remix courtesy of C.R.G.L., which completely flips the original taking the ballad into dance-floor territory and delivers a slab of addictive house beats opening doors to a scene outside of the Afrobeats circuit.

Vicky Sola, has performed to arena crowds and featured at the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony. She was also a lead character in "Oliver Twist", the first Afrobeats play to hit theatreland. The eagle-eyed amongst you will recognise her as a 2010 auditionee on ITV's X-Factor where viewers watched her make it all the way to the final rounds of the boot camp stage.

More recently Vicky has just been announced as nominee for the Best Female Award at the UK Afrobeat Awards 2016. She previously won the ‘Best Unsigned Act’ at the BEFFTA’s (Black Entertainment, Film, Fashion and Television Awards) two years ago.

Vicky is presently promoting her new upcoming release to all media and hope you may consider guesting her on your platforms.
