“As Long As the Lord is Leading Me”, Sharon Siya




Gospel singer/minister and founder of $haron Glam Empire ($GEempire) - a fashion, beauty, style and events brand, believes that it is important for people to fulfill their God-given purpose and that there’s no harm in more people from the church embracing their entrepreneurship side – there should be no limit whatsoever!



She herself is slowly but surely establishing herself as quite the astute businesswoman and an inspiration to a whole lot of young girls out there.
“Quite frankly, I believe we all should discover and pursue our God given purposes. It would be lovely to see more powerful millionaires coming from the church. I believe whatever the Lord blesses you with, he gives you the grace to grow, sustain and expand so we shouldn't limit ourselves. However, I have to say, I encourage individuals to pursue what the Lord has directed them to. You are most effective in your area of calling and purpose”,
“It is not only a business but a purpose filled mission to Empower, Inspire and Influence women to love themselves, honour their bodies and motivate them into pursuing their life vision and goals. ‘When you look good, you feel good", she said, while talking to us in a recent interview.



For Sharon, $GEmpire is where her entrepreneurship and fashion & style sides meet and she is happy that this enterprise has allowed her to marry her two passions.
“Entrepreneurship has always been an interest of mine. It was also one of my favourite subjects in College. As for fashion & style, I developed a deep love and passion for fashion when I started my fitness journey in my early 20's. I felt good about myself and I began to search for a style that would define me as a person as well as reflect my character and personality. I enjoy trying out and showcasing different styles and patterns. I get this joy when I see women looking beautiful. Your appearance has lot to do with how people perceive you”, she said.

With the initial response from the market having been positive, Sharon is hoping to build upon it and work towards expanding her brand in the coming years and make a mark on the local and eventually the international scene as well.
“$GEempire has had a few range of products on the market so far mainly because I am particularly interested in putting out products that I truly love. We are working on building a brand. Building a brand involves learning and growing. Learning about the business, mission, vision, learning about the market, grooming yourself, and it also requires a lot personal development. The results have been amazingly positive. I am appreciative of those who have come through to support me and my dream. I am looking forward to expanding our ($GEempire) product range in the future”, said the singer/gospel minister.

Siya is a strong believer in women’s empowerment and uses her many platforms to connect with her ‘sisters’ on a personal, social and business level.
“The mission is to Empower, Impact and Influence. I have a deep love for women's ministry, it goes deeper than just building a business. This is why I have been taking my time building this brand because it involves a bigger vision. $haron Glam Empire - $GEempire is connected to "Dear Sister Journal” which is an online social and fellowship platform that connects all women from different backgrounds and lifestyles in the direction of God. I know they are many women like me who have felt misunderstood, unpretty or bruised due different obstacles they have faced in life. I would love to connect with them through conversations about life experiences, Testimonials, Fashion & Style, Beauty, Health, Careers, and Dreams & Purpose. As long as the Lord is leading me, the global impact will be fulfilled”, she said.

Even though she made her name through music, Sharon believes that there’s numerous other ways and areas in which she could still impact the world and also serve The Lord – and she is definitely showing everyone else the way! 
“I have been on a specifically instructed hiatus from the Music Ministry. The Lord has been growing me in many areas not just in music, but also as a leader, business woman and a Kingdom Influencer. Currently I have been involved in a lot of work with these two Christian organizations "Inspire One Million" and "Tribe Culture Business". We are impacting and challenging individuals into transforming their ideas into visionary projects.
“Inspire One Million will be hosting an Entrepreneurship Funding Boot Camp which will be held end of September 2018. This is a place for gifted, aspiring, ambitious pioneers and entrepreneurs to come together to learn and conceptualize their future in business and as well as their targeted markets”, said Siya.
