Mima ‘Kanyi’ New R & B Sensation (VIDEO)

Mima Ikyor is about to give the music industry a run for its money. The Lagos based unsigned R & B soul singer releases her first music video, ‘Kanyin’ that is guaranteed to be a hit. Mima has been pursuing music, professionally, since the past two years. She prepares to launch her first album December 2010. Mima graduated with a BSC in Sociology from Kogi State University and originally hails from Benue State.

“Kanyi means what do you want,” said Mima in an exclusive to “It is a Benue language and is where I am from.  .  . My inspiration for my music comes from my experience and passion.”

Mima styled herself in this video. Not bad for an emerging artist on a limited budget. Watch out for her.

    not a bad song,although lyrically could be better.I don’t think the video does the song any justice – the lighting is very poorly lit,these upcoming directors need to understand the concept of lighting as it’s pivital to the plot of the story…..start to finish is bright as the sun in the sky….the walls are bright too..

    All the same,well done Mima

  4. My prayer for every upcoming person is that help will from HEAVEN so case the talent of God in them. I pray same for you.

    I appreciate your courageous effort.

    Very Good
