Keyondra Lockett Inks Deal with Ethnic Doll Brand

keyondra-lockett-kenyaCongratulations to urban inspirational singer Keyondra Lockett who has inked a deal with the toy inventor of the Kenya doll brand. In so doing, Lockett is the first gospel artist to ink a deal with her own teen doll. Lockett came to national prominence as the lead singer of the Stellar nominated group Zie’l and has since launched her individual career with the release of her EP titled Bring Me To.

The Kenya® doll brand has been one of America’s favorite ethnic doll brands and a staple in the African-American community for 25 years. New on the Teen Scene™ is Kenya’s friend singing sensation, Keyondra Lockett who helps Kenya® as they face new encounters of Junior High School. Together they overcome daily challenges on the Teen-Scene™. Kenya® has empowered moms for years and now their daughters can play with her and their new friend Keyondra.

“I am humbled and honored to open a new door in the gospel industry that allows her to speak to children and millennials with a positive message through music and doll play,” shares Lockett.

Kenya® has been a trusted brand name with kids of color, helping them to utilize their own creative imagination with a doll that shares their color and likeness. Kenya® and Friends was created to provide girls of color with a toy that reflects their appearance (both skin tone and features) and can be used as a tool to instill self-esteem. Keyondra will attend the Dallas Toy Fair, September 27-29, to meet with buyers of the doll.

Kenya’s new friend, Keyondra Lockett will hit retail stores in 2017. The Kenya® Doll brand will be available to purchase mid-September at the following retailers, Rite AID, CVS, Cracker Barrel, Burlington Coat Factory, Seventh Ave, Toys R US Express, HEB, and Variety Wholesalers.
