Afi Soul is the critically acclaimed soul and r&b music artist whose self-distributed album, Lovely, landed the no. 10 spot on the SoulTracks Top 10 CDs list, putting her in a class with Erykah Badu, Angela Johnson and Jill Scott. Many consider her supportive anthem for the ‘brothas’ — “Baby, Its Cold Outside” — Afi’s signature tune. The music video for that single stayed in rotation on BETJ and VH1 Soul for months, and was featured on VH1Soul.com.
Touring with artists such as Lil Mo and Raheem Devaughn, renewed interest in Afi’s debut prompted a 2010 re-release led by “Sorry (Gotta Go)”, a no nonsense hit that asserts a woman’s independence. The music video for this single quickly made its way across the internet in 2011.
After Lovely, Afi’s life suddenly took an unexpected turn. At the height of her career, she began watching pieces of her life fall apart with the passing of her father during her fourth pregnancy. Shortly after, Afi experienced heartbreak and a financial downfall that left her homeless.
Shocking friends and family, Afi parted ways with the music industry from 2011 to late 2013 to rediscover herself and rebuild a life for her children.
Now back in the studio, Afi returns a more empowered woman, mother and soulstress. With fans anticipating new music, she releases her latest single, “I’m Gone Shine” off her forthcoming album. With this most recent music video, viewers witnesses Afi reclaim her strength and independence. Afi attributes her healing to her belief in God, family and talent. “I feel like a Phoenix,” said Afi. “…I just keep living.”
