American RnB singer Keri Hilson has confirmed that she will be performing in Kenya in December. Keri who was recently on tour in Nigeria confirmed to her fans on twitter.

"Actually, next month. Mid-December! I'm performing in Tanzania and Kenya for the 1st time!" Keri Hilson has been rumoured to come to Kenya twice; her first concert two years ago was supposed to be on Redsan's album launch while the second one was alongside Usher Raymond earlier in the year.

Born and raised in Georgia,Keri spent most of her youth working as a songwriter and background vocalist for several R&B and hip hop artistes.

By the age of 14, Hilson had secured a record deal with the girl group D'Signe, who later disbanded. She attended Emory University in Atlanta, while she continued writing songs for artistes, including Britney Spears and Mary J. Blige, with the production and songwriting team, The Clutch.

In 2006, Hilson signed with American rapper and producer Timbaland's record label, Mosley Music. Her breakthrough came the following year after appearing on Timbaland's single, The Way I Are, which topped charts around the world.
