Akilah developed her love for music as early as the age of 5. Thinking back when she would literally use any object she can grab as a microphone, She would sing inside the house for hours at a time. Akilah noticed then that music was something she was extremely passionate about. She used her thoughts and feelings to help her deliver messages to people of all walks of life. Her ultimate goal is to use her music platform to lead, teach, & inspire both women and men across the world. 

While handling a hectic school and work schedule, Akilah was able to accomplish something many people in her city aren’t able to do. She graduated from Delaware

State University with over a 3.0 GPA. As Akilah establishes herself in the music industry, she also works as the School, Community, and Home Engagement Manager at the Greenmount West Community Center. 

It’s safe to say that Akilah is someone that is ideal for movies, concerts, civil movements, youth development and more.
