As a little girl, Penda would sneak into the basement for hours to watch her dad listen to music on his headphones and dance around. While most kids were playing with toys, Penda was asking her mother for all the latest records so she could imitate her dad. Soon a DJ was born!
Orignially hailing from NYC, Penda was in a military family so she had the pleasure of living all over the U.S. before her father retired in North Carolina. There, Penda began her career in radio as a on air Personality that spans from Hip-Hop to Smooth Jazz to Gospel, while earning a Bachlor of Science in Music Industry0 Studiies from Elizabeth City State University.
With over 20 years as a DJ/On-Air Personality, Penda is ready to transform the world with her own recordings, merging Classic Old School R&B and Hip- Hop tracks with the upliftment and encouragement of inspirational lyrics…her holistic goal is to be a living example of GOD’s love and freedom for all!
