Not only is she a promising artist, she is also a woman with a compassionate heart who wishes to help people out of their challenging situations.
The emerging artist is visionary and entrepreneurial by nature. She owns her own record label known as Royalty Only Entertainment, where she gets to book and host her own events for music artists, poets, comedians, dancers, and DJs.

As a single mother, Ladi D has had her fair share of challenges, facing changes as they come and choosing to elevate her daily grind instead of giving in to her struggles.
