As an entrepreneur Keyondra and her sister, stylist Kimberly Lockett realized the importance of impacting the exclusion of black female representation and inequality in the fashion industry. The two sisters launched Jolie Noire Apparel, LLC (Jolie Noire means pretty black in French), an essential wear line designed to empower black women and encourage them to be proud of their beauty.
In addition, Keyondra made history by inking a toy doll deal with the Kenya Doll Brand, making her the first gospel artist to have her own doll. It was important to her that little black girls saw beautiful images of themselves in the doll, just as she did when she owned a Kenya doll growing up.
