Perhaps it’s a bit like Gucci Mane in terms of having some kind of global brand as your artist name. I’ve never heard of her before and there’s no connection to the phone other than being called Princess Nokia.
I’m not sure about the rationale for picking the name ‘Nokia’. Because she’s tough?
Princess perhaps not in the sense or royalty but getting what they want.
Apparently she was previously known as Wavy Spice and doesn’t have a phone (says this article).
We apologize to the callers, the KNOW WAVE NOKIA PHONE IS OUTTA MINUTES!

Her soundcloud mentions both names.
Well, Nokia did say they have a strong brand and they’re going to mention where Nokia is headed. With a musician on their forefront?
