R&B songstress Ashanti displayed a bit of sibling love for her baby sister through an April 10 Instagram post. It was one way for the former Murder Inc. artist to join in on social media for National Siblings Day postings.
In the flashback photo, Ashanti and her sister, Kenashia Douglas, are enjoying the sunset on Miami South Beach on her birthday on Oct.13, 2019. “October 13 2019 (My Birthday) Miami Beach #Blessings #NationalSiblingsDay,” Ashanti captioned the photo.
The two ladies rocked white dresses while flaunting their buns, which left fans swooning over the photo.
“Rock wit u vibes 🥺💗.”
“That’s such a sweet pic and such a sweet bond y’all have. I wish I had a sister 🥺.”
“Can we have a space to talk about your fine azz sister 🧐?”
“Omg this is so beautiful, look at that Moon ❤️ 🌑.”
While both ladies caught the attention of Ashanti’s followers, some fans couldn’t tell one from the other.
This wasn’t the first time Ashanti uploaded a photo of her sister to her page that had fans seeing double. The 39-year-old singer/actress posted a 31st birthday tribute to Douglas on Thursday, April 2.
“Happy Birthday to my beautiful amazing sister… I love you more than anything… Thank you for being my best friend in this crazy life… I couldn’t imagine it without you.. thank you for always being by my side and behind the scenes… for all of your creative input and energy,” Ashanti wrote.
“I am beyond proud of everything that you have overcome… and this is just the beginning… I see you putting your heart and soul into ‘ Wife of Creation,’ and I can’t wait for the world to see it!!! Screaming Happy Birthday!!! I love you!!! 🥳🥳🥳❤️❤️❤️🎉🎉🎉😘😘😘🎂🎂🎂 @liltuneshi,” she added.
Fans were awed at how much Ashanti and her sister resemble each other.
“Damn, I thought this was you 😩🦋.”
“Omg, there’s more of you????😍😍😍.”
Before Ashanti’s flashback post, Douglas took to Instagram with a video that shared some dark moments, including a black eye, a bloody face, and broken teeth.
Douglas also included ultrasounds of a pregnancy, engagement ring, a baby bump, and a fetus. In the video, she expresses how trials in life shape who we become.
“Our experiences begin to shape our realities. Here, we learn about pain, isolation, sacrifice, and heartache,” she said. “These experiences, though, no matter how bad, how painful, how ugly, how dark, how beautiful, are all threads that together wove our story and shape our purpose. They reignite our passion and remind us of who we are divinely meant to be.”
While it’s not clear how Douglas received a black eye, bloody face, and broken teeth, she was in a relationship with entrepreneur Slowbucks. The pair were briefly engaged in 2016, and following the video, some people accused him of being an abuser, including rapper 50 Cent.
The two may have ended their engagement in 2018 or 2019.
