The two got married on 28 April 2018 at a beautiful ceremony in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Apparently, Daniel and Sh’Kia also published/streamed their ‘how they met’ story on Hulu.
Augustin Productions was run by Daniel when Sh’Kia met him in her freshman year in college. He was a singer, actor, and athlete interested in turning his album into a music video series. So, they began collaborating in her senior year. They teamed up, wrote it, filmed it, and released it on their own, not letting the lack of money in the bank stop them. Sh’Kia recalls it was not easy, but they did it anyway.
They released their Cake: The Series in 2020 and Kinfolk: The Series another year. Sh’Kia respectively plays the roles of Ronnie Belinsky and Eboni DeVoe in these.
