All the Feels: The Debut of Hustle Softly Podcast with Special Guest Nzinga Imani

The essence of a vibrant evening isn't just found in the laughter that fills the air or the clinking of glasses as toasts are made. It's also in the powerful stories shared and the connections forged in those magical moments. This was exactly the atmosphere at the debut of the "Hustle Softly Podcast," a delightful event that brought together creativity, culture, and great conversations. Presented by African Pride and Grind Pretty, this premiere episode was nothing short of inspiring, hosted by the charismatic Mimi J at the visually stunning venue, the Black Hair Experience.

At its core, the "Hustle Softly Podcast" is a celebration of resilience, creativity, and the art of balancing the grind with self-care. In a world that often glorifies relentless work at the expense of personal well-being, this podcast aims to redefine what it means to be successful. It's about pursuing your passions with determination, yet also embracing the moments of quiet, self-reflection, and care that fuel our inner strength. Mimi J, an entrepreneur and advocate for creative expression, hosts the podcast, bringing her wealth of experience and insight to the conversation.

The debut episode was elevated by the presence of special guest Nzinga Imani, a multifaceted talent known for her roles in BET’s "Sistas" and "Zatima." Nzinga embodies the hustle softly ethos, balancing her rising career in acting and modeling with a grounded, intentional approach to life and work. Her journey, marked by perseverance, talent, and the courage to embrace her unique path, offered rich insights and inspiration to all in attendance. 

At the center of this live podcast was African Pride's Feel It Formula Collection! Event goers got to sample the products and take in all of the immaculate sensory of ingredients; a rich oil blend of peppermint, rosemary, and sage. The product nourishes hair instantly, restores dry damaged hair and treats irritated scalp.


The choice of the Black Hair Experience as the venue for this event was a stroke of genius. This interactive pop-up exhibit, which celebrates the beauty and diversity of Black hair, provided a vibrant and meaningful backdrop that resonated with the themes of the podcast. It underscored the importance of embracing one's heritage and identity, a message that aligns perfectly with the stories shared on "Hustle Softly."


The live event was filled with engaging conversations that ranged from personal growth and career development to the importance of self-care and community support. It was a space where laughter mingled with profound insights, and where every attendee could find a piece of wisdom to take home. The cocktails and G Ann's Juices flowed, but so did the stories of struggle, triumph, and the beauty of hustling softly through life's challenges.

To all who participated and tuned in, the message is clear: keep hustling, but don't forget to hustle softly. Here's to many more episodes that inspire, uplift, and resonate with the essence of who we are and aspire to be.
