Nigerian singer,song writer and multi instrumentalist, Victoria Falana was raised in Brampton, Canada, her sound began falling together in her home and although her parents were “non-musical” as she described them, they still introduced her to the sounds of Fela Kuti, and King Sunny Adé.
She then began writing love songs in the “traditional pop” style that she often heard on the radio but it was upon listening to Lauryn Hill that her powerful and honest writing style really began to take form. As she got into high school, her musical tastes expanded ans she began to explore her artistic voice.
