Damika “Meko” Kelly is the author of Love is Not Pain and the CEO of Love Queen consulting. She serves as an image and brand consultant to professionals and artists as well as a mentor to teen girls.
Affectionately known as “Meko the Boss,” Damika Kelly’s life hasn’t always been defined by smiles and success. Meko’s story includes a road often paved with pain and heartbreak at the hands of abusive men, music industry scandal, and personal drama. Through it all, however, Meko prevailed to earn her degree in communications, become a mother to three children, and launch multiple businesses and brands alongside her husband DJ Sixth Sense.
Love is Not Pain
Part tell-all, part cautionary tale, this emotionally charged memoir from former singer and songwriter nicknamed 'Meko' goes beyond the allure of superstar status to reveal the inner workings of the hip-hop and R&B music industry. Meko's journey is filled with physical and emotional abuse from her son's father, a Grammy Award-winning music producer, to signing bad music contracts, to the excessive use of drugs, exotic dancing, and sex trafficking.
As a survivor of child molestation, depression, and domestic violence, Meko guides you through her process of hope, healing, forgiveness, and moving forward. By sharing her story she hopes to shed light on the music industry and help artists avoid the same pitfalls she encountered. She encourages entertainers to learn from her mistakes of not having legal representation, owning their masters, and copyrighting their music. Meko's book is a powerful testimony about how she bounced back to become the boss of her life again.
