VIDEO CONVERSATION: FATi, The New Queen of AfroPop

FATi, the new Queen of Afropop, is on a mission and she gives us the deets when she sits down with What’s The 411’s host, the award-winning journalist, Kizzy Cox, and comedian Onika McLean.

FATi takes us on her career voyage starting with giving up her “day job” with the thought of showcasing her talents on Broadway to going back home to Abidjan to structure her singing career to performing before 500,000 people at a concert in Nairobi, Kenya, and more.

FATi is not the typical newbie in the recording industry, as her father, helped her to understand early in the process that she needs to be more than a singer and take control of her product. He’s also quick to remind her when necessary that "you got to be about your business."

When FATi arrived in Nairobi, Kenya to perform at a benefit with her uncle, Robert “Kool” Bell, to find 500,000 people in the audience, she showed her vulnerability, as she suffered a serious case of stage-fright. And, FATi’s mother immediately took on the Cher character in the movie, Moonstruck, to set her straight. Needless to say, FATi rebounded quickly and performed to rave reviews.

Coming from a tight-knit family, everyone is on board with supporting FATi’s dream; in fact, her brother is her manager. And, FATi is having a great time while living her dream. She’s still looking forward to performing on Broadway and would love to perform with Akon, Missy Elliot, T Savage, and Shekhinah (South Africa) to name a few.

FATi knows everything is about timing, and she’s willing to stay focused, and continue to do the work, so she will be ready for greater opportunities.
