In addition to be a great hip hop artiste, Sasha P also started her own fashion line -Eclectic by Sasha – which she has been focusing on for some time now.
Today, the multi-talented artiste turns a year older. As she celebrates, she took to her instagram page to share an adorable picture from her childhood and why birthdays are actually a big deal for her.
I was born on my father’s birthday, He loved birthdays. He loved birthdays so much he would throw birthdays for his friends. I love doing a lot of things I do (i’ve come to understand ) because – I was born on my father’s birthday!
When the clock strikes 12 every May 21, my heart smiles. I begin to feel a burst of emotions, pain, joy, excitement, a longing for all things I think I still want….I also deeply feel Loss- Because you see , I was born on my father’s birthday but he is no longer with us!
So I get up and pray and dance and sing and thank God cause a few years later my niece was born on my birthday and the day has even more meaning to me now!
It reminds me that God makes everything new, and God has a sense of humour and God gives pearls for ashes…..So i make a fuss about my birthday every year because its a triple celebration .
Today my joy is full and I am grateful for all that I have- Family, friends and a journey in purpose. Thanks to everyone already – Happy Birthday To meeeeeeee ??????????? #BirthdayGirl#IInventedBirthdays #DoADanceForMe#PrayForMe #HaveAGlassForMe
