Over the past two and a half years, well known reggae artist Laga Savea; as well as reggae music legend, godfather of island music, and otherwise known as “Uncle” to Mimi–George “Fiji” Veikoso–have both worked with Mimi vocally training and producing her.
Come middle of March this year, 2018, Fiji brought Mimi to the attention of his good friend, famed/acclaimed music producer Damon Elliott. Elliott has worked with some of the industry’s biggest names including P!nk, Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, Mya, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Macy Gray, Gwen Stefani, and Keyshia Cole to name a few; and he decided to take on Mimi as his new artist.
Over the past two months, Mimi has undergone intensive dance training. LA based dancer Natalie Lyons, who has danced alongside Kristinia Debarge, Willow Smith, Ne-Yo and Pitbull, Usher, Keyshia Cole, The Wanted, and Beyonce for the 2013 Super Bowl, flew out to Hawaii and has been working alongside Mimi to help in developing her further as an artist; becoming her right hand when it comes to anything dance related. Additionally, well known writer, rapper/singer, and LA based music producer Avyon Ndlovu came out to Hawaii to assist Damon Elliott in vocally producing Mimi’s first album.
