In some tragic news, Shenseea’s mother has passed away.
The grief-stricken artiste took to her Instagram to share the news and her feelings about the devastating event.
She said: “Mommy my heart is BROKEN Mommy. broken. i never knew I had this much tears until this day! I ask God for strength just strength. I love you Forever #RIP #RIP #RIP my mada and fada ina one!!! Jah know mi mada i’ll never forget you EVER!
The two were very close and there are many social media videos that show the extent and depth of their love for each other. As recently as May she shared a mishap involving her mom that left them stranded on the road and how much fun they had walking home.
In May, the artiste also shared her rags-to-riches story by taking fans on a visit to her childhood home at a time when she had very little. “Mommy was a single parent and worked and lived in jobs so during high school years I moved back and forth between relatives just to get a place to stay…. then drop out a college ( financial problems)”, Shenseea said of her humbled beginnings with her mom.
It’s a tough blow for the artiste who is just 23-years-old. The singer has never met her father, who is Korean, and left when her mother was six months pregnant, according to The Star.
Fans including fellow artistes were quick to offer up their condolences.

She now lives through you, closer than ever before , your spirit and vibe is a testament to that . Keep Keeping on and carry her everywhere you go , in all that you achieve . Talk to her , she will forever guide you. Strength , love and healing.”
