Kitty Girls is a defunct all-female singing group formed in April 2007, by Cecille Carpio of Elan Models International and Jose Felix Dingcong of JLD Management, in the Philippines. Originally a quintet, the group consisted of Jocelyn Oxlade, Ayanna Oliva, Veronica Scott, Nicole Deen and Tanya Yuquimpo. In 2010, the group relaunched as a trio with Khai Lim joining Oxlade and Oliva.
Formation and debut album
In 2007, under the guidance of Cecille Carpio of Elan Models International and Jose Felix Dingcong of JLD Management, the Kitty Girls were signed to Star Records. The original line up, consisting of Jocelyn Oxlade, Ayanna Oliva, Veronica Scott, Tanya Yuquimpo and Nicole Deen, would open up for Akon in the Akon—Live in Manila concert in November and would feature in the cover of FHM Philippines' December 2007 issue.
Line up change, relaunch and new single
Over time the group would become a trio, with Oxlade, Oliva and Scott, in TV appearances.
On June 2010, the group was relaunched in The Fort in Taguig, with Khai Lim joining Oxlade and Oliva, and sang live for the first time their new single We On Fire—which debuted on DWFM U92 a week earlier. In an interview with Nelson Canlas for 24 Oras' Chikka Minute segment, Jocelyn revealed that the other girls left the group to go back to their respective countries and some to go back to their studies.
A year later, the trio would tour Malaysia for Pernod Ricard's Ambassadeurs De La Marques Presents Stellar.
