Childhood years

Her mother’s name was Gloria Eva Simmons. After the wedding, she added James at the end.

Later, she changed her name to Olaiya Odufunke. When her youngest child was 6 years old, Olaiya became obsessed with Scientology and sold her entire property.

After the woman joined the Sea Organization she left her older children and life in Atlanta behind. The future VH1's star was too young to be left.

Thus, her mother took the girl to the head office of Scientology in Los Angeles:

That’s what she wanted to do. She didn’t care what we thought about it.

She had a troubled and unconventional childhood:

Life was completely turned upside down. We lived in a room with bunk beds. We went to the cafeteria for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And my mom was working all the time. I only got to see her during what they called Family Time, from five to seven pm. Just two hours a day.

Considering that Scientologists' children were recruited for the Sea Organization at a very early age, Olaiya’s daughter was no exception.

When she was 13, church officials told her she needed to work for them:

I was eating their food and staying in their facility. They told me I either needed to sign a billion-year contract or I had to leave.

So she packed her suitcases and went to the house of her friend:

She was a friend but I called her my cousin. I went to her place… I was still going to a Scientology school. It was the middle of the school year. After staying with my cousin over the weekend, I had to catch a bus back to the school on Monday.


She attended the Mace-Kingsley school at Silver Lake, established by two Scientologists. Her education was a challenge since she had no home to sleep at:

These weren’t just Sea Org kids. There were children of rich Scientologists there too. So I’d ask if I could spend the night with a different schoolmate every day, and I’d go home with them. No one knew I didn’t have a home of my own. I finished the school year that way.


Upon graduation, she worked in her cousin’s pharmacy. When she was 17 years old, her mother asked her to come to see her at the Sea Organization.

It was a trick that the church authorities used to recruit her. Nonetheless, their plan was a failure as she refused to sign their contract.

In the late 1990s, she starred in music videos of Kelly Price (It’s Gonna Rain) and Pharrell Williams (Frontin, with Jay-Z).

In 2002, she launched her cleaning business named Keep It Clean Inc. In 2012, she became part of the reality show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.
