Although Ms. Sebastian has achieved success, it was not without difficulty, after fleeing Russia to escape racism and persecution from neo- Nazi thugs, she made London her home to only face additional adversity. After trying to claim asylum she was detained illegally at the Yarl's Wood detention center while three months pregnant on November 21, 2007, for two months to fight being deported back to Russia. At Yarl’s Wood she wasn’t able to receive proper medical attention as there was no facilities for pregnant women, she suffered malnourishment and wasn’t able to receive a vital ultrasound at five months to detect birth defects. Despite facing these trials and tribulations she fought and after a two year battle which included writing to the Queen of England of her wrongful imprisonment and receiving a reply from the Queen acknowledging the points she made and offering her support. Ms. Sebastian's case was finally approved and she was granted her stay in UK.
Ms. Sebastian continued pursuing music while raising her daughter born in 2008 (whose father is American super producer Swizz Beatz) and for three years she had been mostly working behind the scenes juggling motherhood and work. After producing and engineering a few hundred songs for other artists, releasing her “Emancipation EP” in 2009 and a few other songs independently, filming three music videos and acting in three short movies, a feature film "Reversed" release in 2012 and numerous commercials, she is focusing on her solo career and upcoming projects.
