LP-A Woman's Reprieve



Kehinde Spencer is an up and coming songwriter and a poet who receives inspiration from her African heritage, academic pursuits, and spiritual practice. Kehinde was born in London, England to Nigerian parents and lived there and in Nigeria until she was eight years old. Her mother is Yoruba and her father is Hausa with roots in Sierra Leone. Kehinde knows herself as an African and is proud of her Nigerian and Sierra Leonean culture and heritage. From the age of eight until the age of eighteen, Kehinde lived in Ohio. She moved to Michigan to receive a Bachelors of Arts in English from the University of Michigan, and in 2005, she moved to Tallahassee, Florida to obtain a Masters in Applied Social Science from Florida A&M University. Tallahassee was the place where she began to take her creative writing seriously and blossomed into an artist.
Kehinde uses her writing as an outlet for her pain and a way to speak to the world. This artist writes from the understanding that the Black community is in need of healing and in order for healing to come, self-study must take place, a realization she has come to because of her Yogic and African spiritual practices.
In the work Kehinde writes, she shows the necessity for people to see their shortcomings and to understand why they have those flaws because only through understanding can people free themselves of baggages they do not need. Kehinde is able to convey this in her art because she is sharing her experiences with the world when she writes about heartache and pain as well as joy and triumph. She realizes that African people worldwide have inherited and keep passing down a legacy of pain, and it is time that African people do all they can to break that cycle. Kehinde is playing her part in breaking the chains with A Womans Reprieve, which is her debut album. Her beautiful music is her gift to the world, keys to see you to new beginnings: enjoy!
