Iyla joins Kenya on Thank You For Saying NO to talk about her journey becoming the successful artist that she is and the hurdles she had to overcome along the way. Iyla tells the story of how working at a cupcake shop led her to become a successful artist. Yes, you read that right. A cupcake shop! Iyla opens up about the NOs in her career. Kenya and Iyla discuss her decision not to go to college and having to start her music career over while simultaneously going through a tough break up. Iyla talks about how she stayed true to herself in an industry that wasn’t yet ready for her. The pair talk about how they work through the fear and struggles of the “NO” moments when it feels like nothing is working out. Iyla also gets into the moment she knew she was thankful for all the NOs because they led her to today! Her story will inspire you to never give up, to be yourself, and to keep going even when it seems scary and hard.
