Kikka Sirén


Kikka Sirén

Kikka (Birth name of Kirsi Hannele Viilonen, b. October 26, 1964 in Tampere, d. December 3, 2005 in Nokia) was a popular Finnish pop/schlager singer. She was known for her sexpot image and suggestive, equivocal songs. Her career was launched in the late 1980s, inspired by the success of such busty international stars as Samantha Fox and Italy's Sabrina Salerno. Kikka's best-known songs were "Mä haluun viihdyttää" ("I Want to Entertain"), "Sukkula Venukseen" ("A Shuttle to Venus"), "Tartu tiukasti hanuriin" ("Grab the Accordion Firmly" in slang the word "hanuri" often refers to butt) and "Apinamies" ("Apeman").

The peak of Kikka's popularity was in the late 1980s and early 1990s when she earned three platinum records and two gold records.

In the 21st century, health problems interfered with the artist's career. According to the Finnish Iltalehti, the cause of her death on December 3, 2005 at the age of 41 was a heart attack.
