Born Erica Abi Wright in South Dallas, TX on February 26, 1971, Erykah Badu
decided to change the spelling of her name from Erica to Erykah, as she firmly believed her original name to be her slave name. The term 'kah' signifies the inner self. Badu is her favorite jazz scat sound and is also an African name for the 10th born child used for the Akan people in Ghana.
Erykah has been pushing the envelope in music and fashion since she stepped on the scene in 1996.
With her big African head wraps, afros, B-Boy style, etc..Erykah is not afraid to experiment with colors and textures.
Her fashion, like her music is and expression of her..Emotional, Eclectic, Philosophical & Personal. Erykah has taught us that you don't have to be half naked to be a sex symbol.
Thank you, Ms.Badu for pushing it to the limit and staying true to You...That's DAT FIRE!!!
