In a recent interview with The Progress Report, plus size model and artist Tokyo Vanity
speaks on rapping since the age of 10, her hit single, “Best Friend” and starting her career on Vine. Her first video she ever posted to the social media channel went viral, channeling over 40k followers overnight. Although she was popular on Vine, she admits that she ultimately left the platform because it wasn’t supportive of black entertainers.
Tokyo is now gearing up for the release of her debut project, Kon’nichiwa which is expected to release in the near future with production from The Remedy Production Groups own, Chris Beatz and others.
Tokyo Vanity also speaks on being a fan of Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Trina, Nicki Minaj, & Cardi B.

The following two tabs change content below.
I am a Music Manager, Digital Content Blogger, Publicist, Radio Personality, and believer of God.
I took a leap of faith in 2013 and moved to Atlanta after graduating from Xavier University (Cincinnati, Ohio) with a degree in Public Relations & Business Management. I connected with the Coalition DJs of Atlanta my first week of being in ATL and eventually began interning with the brand. My daily responsibilities included going from a minimum of 4 main clubs each night ensuring that priority records were being played while helping build and maintain consumer relations.
During this time, I also worked as an assistant for several producers such as Dun Deal, Sonny Digital and other musicians.
Working in such untraditional work environments taught me self-discipline and time management.
While building my name and brand, I taught myself how to shoot and edit videos, and build websites. Now I partner with several major blog sites to offer exclusive content written and conducted by myself.
I have a Youtube interview series called The Progress Report where I speak to artists, producers, and tastemakers about music, life, and entrepreneurship.
I also have a weekly live interview podcast at Highly Unique Radio also called The Progress Report with an all female cast aimed towards giving exposure to entrepreneurs and independent artists. The latest person we interviewed was Orlando Brown, needless to say it was a very entertaining show.
I am also the co-owner of Femcee.net which is the all-purpose platform dedicated to servicing and empowering womanhood through digital networking. (www.Femcee.net)
I pride myself on loyalty and my work ethic and ongoing commitment to bettering everyone around me from clients to peers while I learn from them.
I eventually wish to start a non-profit organization to empower young women teaching them how to be their own bosses.
