After a disastrous marriage to her first husband, Allanah nearly gave up on her ambition of being a musician.

Allanah disclosed in an interview that she got married in 2015. But abuse caused her to leave the relationship later on. Allanah said I had a difficult life after getting married in 2015, and my husband, who was pursuing a career as a music producer, did not want me to be a musician, so I was forced to stay at home.

People would call me names and I would hustle by every means, including buying and selling stuff, but I was still so poor that I had to wear rags. Eventually, I became violent to the point that I was detained for assaulting some of them. It essentially transformed me on a physical and emotional level, but I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for God. I returned to the studio and created a song about it as part of my recovery process, and this is what attracted my manager’s notice and brought my music to prominence later on. [3]
