Jeylechia Kirkland, formally known as “Nefertiti”, changed her name to ‘NEF.’ after 9 years under the former artist name
NEF. released her first album titled “Nefertiti” (DatPiff.com) in 2014 during her first pregnancy and second year of college. Although this
project wasn’t a masterpiece, you can definitely hear the foundatio Although she was interested in making music a career, NEF. didn’t take it seriously. It wasn’t until 2018 when she went public with the freestyle “Quiet Storm” (SoundCloud) that others around her started taking notice of her talent as well.
From there NEF. collaborated with the Key Holders Music Group which included other artists and producers from the 843 area. During this time she was able to gain experience from being on sets,
recording in professional studios, and being involved in distribution projects. It was from here that NEF. decided to remain an independent artist.
Consequently, in 2020 NEF. began engineering her own songs, recording and editing her own music videos, in addition to booking her own performances.
As a mother of two she sometimes finds it difficult to balance her second life but motherhood has also brought inspiration to the artist. Resulting in songs like “MILF” and “As The World Turns”
While building herself to become a jack of all trades, Nef. has been able to network and catch the attention of other talented artists such as Tru Heru, Bluebillz, Awon, and Mike Damn.
NEF. is currently working on a few new projects that we can look forward to in the near future. As well as, participating in a tournament for 10k, a distribution deal with Beatstars.com, and a celebrity co-sign.
We look forward to experiencing what this upcoming artist has in store for us this year!
