Usher, Bruno Mars, Ciara and of course Queen Bey are just a few of the people Saidah Nairobi has had the pleasure of working with. However, before she was performing at the Super Bowl or touring with Beyonce, she was just a college student who had a love for writing, dance and teaching.

Saidah Nairobi performing with Beyonce

So many times people have goals or aspirations they wish to accomplish but life gets in the way and they don’t follow through. During this conversation Saidah discussed how she made hers’ a reality. She talked about the power of being fearless, embracing her look, working with Beyonce’ and being a woman in the entertainment industry. This is all while still being a wife, and new mother (she is due any day now by the way.)
