Singer Chaka Khan is giving us a “Sweet Thing” to look out for just before Valentine’s Day. The 10-time Grammy winner debuted her own line of chocolates at this year’s Grammy Gift Lounge in Los Angeles. As we know Chaka has struggled with diabetes and high blood pressure and the “Chakalates,” as they are called, are delicious and healthy and contain antioxidant rich dark chocolate, known to assist in lowering blood pressure. A box sells for $36.
Not only is she dabbling with chocolates again, Black Enterprise has reported that she will also indulge in the candle business, with her “Khana Sutra” candles ($27 on her website). Not only can you listen to the tunes of Ms. Khan to get you and your “Angel” in the mood, you can smell the scent of her soy wax clean burning candles. Do these candles remind anyone else of Mama Jones’ provocative “Poom Kash” perfume line or is it just me?
Hopefully she has a good product otherwise, “Ain’t Nobody” gonna buy it. Ok that’s the last one I promise.
These products will launch in celebration of Chaka Khan’s 40th year anniversary of her music career. She’s also celebrating her 60th birthday, leading to what she’s calling the “Chaka Khan 40-60 Anniversary Kickoff.” She has been an inspiration in the music industry and hopefully she will have great success with her products.
