Shakina was born and raised in the challenging streets of Baltimore City. Her ability to sing often grabbed the attention of her family and began at the tender age of just 4 years old. Life's challenges and hard decisions slowed her success despite her countless efforts but still to this day, her city loves her music. She touches her audience with every lyric relating to many stories of what she would call,..."The Hood." Eventually Shakina launched her own Entertainment Company, Ani`Kahs Entertainment in 2006 after working with several local composers and building a small fan base. Her confidence gained her many benefits as she learned the business and progressed. Within just a short time Shakina was the highlight of many local albums and mix tapes, which gained her local recognition and the title "Baltimore's Queen of R&B. The strength in her voice is comparable to top recording artist such as Fantasia, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill; etc. just to name a few. The fame was never a priority when the mike was involved...most of her acts she did for the love of music. Yet it is no secret that this young black entrepreneur is extraordinarily gifted and needs to be heard. Her story is truly a mirrored documentary of black women of today. Now with so much more to share with the world, she has prepared herself over the years and has endured capabilities of capturing the hearts of hundreds of thousands all over the world. She represents her City with dominance, class, and grace these days, remarkably on a venture to be the worlds next most influential female entrepreneur.
