With “hidden lights in hidden places,” Senya Donkor, inevitably, found her calling. She is a creative visionary, a musician, a songwriter, a philanthropist, a model, and much more. Her talents exceed far beyond entertainment.
Senya’s purpose is to ignite a flame in the hearts of those she touches. Through her music and future entrepreneurial endeavors, she hopes to transform lives. Born in West Africa’s Ashanti region of Ghana on July 4, 1992, Senya uses her cultural background as inspiration for much of her work. Her music is a blend of reggae, soul, pop, afro-beat, and R&B sounds.
We get a taste of this in her new single and visual, “Hidden Treasures,” which is scheduled for a release date later this summer. The video is set and filmed in the beautiful tropics of Jamaica, a destination very dear to Senya. Senya would not have, in a million years, imagined that she would be pursuing a career as a musician. She started her career as a model, and continues to shock the internet with her most recent “New American Girl Campaign” and in the past, even a feature on Ebony.
Through her photoshoots, she seeks to convey a message of women empowerment, especially for women of color. Senya is not your average day philanthropist, instead she’s the new age “modelanthropist,” a term coined by the multifaceted artist. A modelanthropist is a professional model who uses her platform for the good of her community. This firecracker is showing no signs of stopping.
