A few years ago, Chaka’s father, Charles, suddenly passed away, shortly after she relocated to Atlanta. Broken hearted and overwhelmed with feelings of loneliness, has made visiting her father’s grave very hard, especially since he was the most vocal and supportive encourager of her move. The biggest connection and memory Chaka and her two sisters reminisce about is being called by their father, “Charlie’s Angels.” She hopes that that small connection will re-connect the broken bonds between her and her siblings.
Currently engaged, and in spite of her very busy, entrepreneur’s life, Chaka is planning her wedding, set for September 19th, 2019. Chaka still resides in Atlanta, GA.
