Leki (born January 28, 1978; Kinshasa, Congo) is the first female urban/R&B-pop star to rise out of Belgium. She is known for many hits including "Breakin' Out", "Spread my wings", "Over the Rainbow", and "Love me another day". She is also a TV presenter on VTM.

Leki started at the early age of twelve laying down vocals for Technotronic. At the time, Leki's older sister Ya Kid K was the voice behind Technotronic whose successes include the global mega hit "Pump Up the Jam".

In October 2009 she released her fourth studio album "Leki & The Sweet Mints" (Universal Music).

Leki is also sensitive to humanitarian projects in Africa where she is the godmother of a young farmers development activity in Uganda. Lately Leki decided to accomplish one of her father's dream: the building of a hospital in his natal village of Malambu in Congo. Via Nanda, the non-profit-making organization she has founded, and under the name "Bouwen aan leven" ("building life")several initiatives -such as the single "Pecuiar places"- have been taken since 2010 to help raise funds, hoping that the hospital will be operational towards the end of 2013.[2] On May 14, 2012 she released "Get Over" the first single from her 2012 album "The Journey".
