This past weekend, Emani Asghedom (pictured left) celebrated her 11th birthday and shared the beautiful moments she spent with her family.
Emani is the adorable young daughter of Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom (pictured right). Samantha Smith, Nipsey Hussle’s sister, helped her niece Emani celebrate in style. Smith made sure the princess was treated to manicures and a beautiful birthday cake, which paid tribute to her late father’s legendary mantra: “The Marathon continues.”
Smith used Instagram to showcase herself and her precious little niece a decade and year after the day Emani was born into a legacy that will live forever. Emani’s beloved aunt wrote compassionately about her near the serene pictures that symbolized this special day.
“Happy 11th Birthday to my warrior princess. You are a strong courageous powerful fearless leader with a bright soul and an insightful mind. I love you endlessly and am here to celebrate life with you every step of the way!!” Smith wrote in a photo caption on Instagram.
Emani’s birthday celebration is the first one she has had to live through without her father. He paraded elegantly around the halls of stars with his princess on Grammy night this year. The daddy/daughter pair was dressed impeccably looking like legitimate royalty.
At the 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony of 2019, Nipsey Hussle was nominated for the first accolade of this kind in his entire career. His album “Victory Lap” got a Best Rap Album Grammy nomination and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
However, Nipsey Hussle was much more than a phenomenal rap artist. He provided an abundance of funds to deliver blight reduction for restoring inner-city public schools in impoverished neighborhoods.
Nipsey’s legacy of community rebuilding is well-documented. His heart was genuinely connected to the city and county that made him who we was: Los Angeles, California. Though he died there from gunshot wounds on March 31, 2019, Nipsey’s daughter Emani will grow older and learn much more.
Instead of the dregs surrounding grim details of his death and those last moments leading up to it, Nipsey’s daughter Emani will feel and witness the honor and see the positive impact her father had on humanity in his 33 great years on Earth.
May his soul rest in peace and may the Lord’s grace continue to be with Emani and the rest of her family.
