    Kierra Sheard is my girl, love that she’s finally doing purpose in her music for herself and not for others. I’ve actually heard a few tracks from her upcoming album and let me tell you, y’all really ain’t ready for the slayage lol! Coko….I’ve always said I have to relate with the artist before the music to become a fan and Coko ain’t it for me. After seeing her behavior on SWV, who the hell would want to be “taken in the spirit” by someone who clearly is doing Gospel music for self gratification? She’s rude, arrogant and self loathing and I don’t believe she’s real. My feelings have nothing to do with her singing R&B prior to Gospel, that doesn’t bother me but what does bother me is she’ll “fake” holy in the Gospel community to get acceptance then curse your a*s out on her SWV reality show…girl, bye. Like all artists should do, be real about the music you sing. You like being a ho (Ri****) ok, sing about then, at least she’s being real.
