Legendary Performer Suga-T Honored With An Award for Her Business Savvy
Suga-T was chosen as Businesswoman of the Decade at the 16th Annual West Coast Hip Hop Awards.
"The award was a surprise and I'm very honored by the recognition,"
She began her first business with her grandfather when she was only eight years old. By age 12 she was operating her own mobile hair styling business. Today she is CEO of a conglomerate of businesses, nonprofits and community organizations known as the Sprinkle Me Social Enterprise (SMSE).
"I've always felt I had to create opportunities for myself," she says. "I was a single teen mom; I've suffered domestic violence and I'm in a business, hip hop music, that values the young and that can be pretty harsh toward older women. Entrepreneurship gave me freedom; and in life and business ventures, I'm able to teach others how to build and sustain their own opportunities."
SMSE includes the Sprinkle Me Learning Academy (a coaching and mentoring platform); a music and video production company; a beauty and health products firm, and the HER Museum. Stevens is also founder of the 501c3 nonprofit Work It Well Project, an organization that serves vulnerable populations and moms of children with autism. And, she is the author of several books on empowerment and business affairs.
The busy songstress and businesswoman will perform at the Bay Area's premiere annual hip hop music festival Hiero Day on September 5th, and she'll be in Sacramento on September 10th at the city's first Turkey Leg Day Festival. At both events she'll be presenting her new "Suga-T Experience Rhythm and Rap" act and singing some of her hit songs. The HER Museum mobile exhibit will also be displayed at both events.
Hiero Day will be held at 3rd and Martin Luther King Jr Way, Oakland, starting at 12 noon and the Turkey Leg Festival at Hagginwood Community Park, 3271 Marysville Blvd, Sacramento, from 12 noon to 7pm.
