Nelly and ashanti dating 2016
Raised in a loving home in Glen Cove, New York, Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas and her sister, Kenashia, have musical parents.
Her mother, who’s like a best friend, is a former dance instructor and her father, Kenkaide, was a singer. Ashanti was named after the Ashanti Empire in Ghana, a nation where women were powerful.
At fourteen, Ashanti landed her first record contract.
Dividing her time between recording sessions and high school, she was an honor student and a track star.
She appears alongside Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, and Courtney Cox.
We were going through whatever we were going through, but when I started recording it, we were okay. Like, we weren’t even speaking at all…regardless, I’m going to always have love for Irv. In 2002 she released her debut album, Ashanti, having written all twelve tracks.
