[Video Premiere] Songstress Akilah Nehanda Muhammad releases "Best in the World"


Pay attention because this could be the next Grammy nominated music artist in the coming years. She has a beautiful voice, a magnetic personality and a smile that will win you over within seconds. She is focused. She is determined to be the best. Her name is Akilah Nehanda Muhammad and she’s a Muslim songstress striving to set a new standard in the music industry. “Best in the World” is her first music video and it’s sure to be a hit. In one part of the song she says "Truth is what we need/How else will we ever grow?/It's not about how you look/It's really about what you know."

Filmed at Howard University, the school where Akilah is a senior, the video is packaged with great vocals, a grooving beat, modesty, unity on the yard and just plain fun! I will be doing an extensive one-on-one interview with Akilah soon but until then, click below to watch the premiere of “Best in the World.” Congrats Akilah! I’m proud of you niece.

  3. I had tears in my eyes watching this video last night. I could not wait to show it to my daughters and wife when they woke up this morning. Sister via her actions is showing that we can enjoy ourselves as Muslims.

  6. She's the only blood niece I have, and the last time I saw her I was playing my keyboard and she sat next to me and smiled and giggled. Now she has inspired me to complete the songs I started writing years ago. Amazing how our Heavenly Farther works through others. She continues to make me proud of her. Absent in flesh, but present in the spirit!!! Kurt,

  13. Miss Akilah! Thank you for that fresh basketful of lively entertainment! I don't know what all the boundaries are in the Muslim world, but I've often wondered if Black people had the opportunity to express our uniqueness in that manner! I really think that God and the whole world love to see Black people "get in the groove" like that!
