She is a social networking phenomenon who has become one of Britain’s most promising pop singers after winning the prestigious BBC Sound of 2022 poll last week.

Despite her success and more than a million TikTok fans, little is known about the 20-year-old protégé other than her stage name: PinkPantheress.

But The Mail on Sunday may reveal that the real name of the star is Vicky Beverly Walker and that she is the daughter of a professor of statistics and a civil servant born in Kenya.

She was born in Bath in 2001, where her father Stephen worked in the mathematics department at the city university. One diplomat with good contacts described the singer as “classy”.

Together with her mother Elza and older brother Christopher, the family moved to Kent in 2010, home to the £ 500,000 town house in Canterbury.

She attended the selective and highly successful Barton Court High School, during which time she says she folded the shelves in the Co-op supermarket.

Ms. Walker’s career in show business began at the age of 12, when she danced in Bugsy Malone’s school production, but music was her passion and she began writing songs in her bedroom and planning her unorthodox approach to her career.

For the past year, she has been releasing music while living in London and studying film at university, but there is also time for other activities, including futsal, a football game played on a hard field.

Her stage name was created after watching the ITV quiz show The Chase, where moderator Bradley Walsh asked the contestant what the panther was called.

Mrs. Walker says the answer – a panther – was supposed to be her name, but after realizing that someone was already using it on the Internet, she put the word “pink” in front of him.

Speaking of her desire to be mysterious, she said, “I’ve found that it’s easier not to put every single card on the table. I love my privacy and I felt that if I had my music outside and my face everywhere, it would start to be too much for people. “

She was born in Bath in 2001, where her father Stephen (pictured) worked in the mathematics department at the city's university.

However, this did not prevent her from working to increase the number of her followers on TikTok. Her strategy of following 1,000 people every hour paid off, and soon her popularity was noticed by Parlophone, the home of artists like Coldplay and Sir Paul McCartney, who signed it.

In October, Mrs. Walker released her debut album To Hell With It, and a week later she was introduced by American fashion designer Marc Jacobs as her new muse alongside young models Iris Law and Belly Hadid.

Despite her shyness about her true identity, Ms. Walker is well connected and works with Kenya’s High Commissioner for the United Kingdom, Manoah Esipisu, who described her as “classy” and said she was a regular visitor to Mombasa, the port city in her mother’s home country.

Last Thursday, Ms Walker was unveiled as a BBC tip for the future after 130 music experts voted for her, including singers Sir Elton John, Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix, Ed Sheeran and Billie Eilish.
