We had the good fortune of connecting with Sol Xprsn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sol, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Our story started out pretty rocky, to say the least! Tenci and I met one fun-filled night as performers during a mutual friend’s album-release showcase. Our friendship immediately took off and that made it a given that we would start working on music together. But as life would have it as soon as we thought we had everything figured out, something tragic happened: on New Years Day of 2016, Tenci’s mom, “Mama Peaches”, fell ill with a rare form of cancer.
This was on top of her already troublesome type-2 diabetes! Not only that, but this came as a shock to the whole family because Mama Peaches raised her children to be vegetarian and everyone assumed that they were all healthy! As you can probably imagine we wanted nothing else but to see her get healthy again, so we began researching natural ways of healing the body from disease and pulled together everything we knew about the healing process, holistic remedies, indigenous herbs, mental mastery, and helped as much as we could.
After the surgery and radiation treatments, we witnessed Mama Peaches go from bad to worse (to the point where she couldn’t walk, talk, or even eat!). It was during this part of the story that we learned something new. Even though they didn’t have a lot of money for treatments, even though Mama peaches couldn’t function normally, she was not about to allow this circumstance to break her mind. She ended up slowly starting to recover, using the power within herself to never give up. She eventually started using herbs and teas to cleanse her body, then later organic alkaline foods to aid in her recovery. No chemo. Believe it or not, she not only was able to reverse her type 2 diabetes within 3 months, but she was (and IS) living cancer-free within 12 months! Amazing, right? It was in helping her in every way we could, and bearing witness to the journey ourselves, that we discovered a greater purpose…
The trajectory of our business changed forever as we became certified healers with a passion to help people reclaim their lives and gain a deeper understanding of health and wellness. This led us down a path toward spiritual “Freedom”, holistic wellness, and artistry. Our business is named “Ufulu Child” because “ufulu” means “freedom” in an African “Bantu” language known as “Nyanga”. Freedom is a concept we incorporate into every crevice of our creations.
To make a long story short, we help people “Become Their Own Breakthrough” just like we saw Mama Peaches do. We do this by not only creating uplifting musical content for our fans, but also by introducing our clients to yoga (and other forms of intentional movement), meditation, plant-based eating, cleansing methods, and a host of other modalities in the realm of optimal lifestyle transformation.
From all of the years of trial and error, research, and applying everything we discovered, we created a holistic healing system that has facilitated lasting wellness transformations in the lives of our clients. Our holistic wellness system is called the Freedom 5™ – which is the foundation of any sustainable healing practice. We offer virtual coaching and membership programs that make consistency on a wellness journey easy for Freedom Seekers worldwide.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Ufulu Child is a home for Freedom Seekers worldwide rooted in wellness and artistry. We are all about: (1) helping others create the healthy lifestyles they actually love to live without having to make 1,000 sacrifices along the way, (2) making consistency easy, simple & fun with tools and resources for creating and sticking to an at-home holistic
wellness practice that actually works, and (3) guiding our clients to become their own breakthrough when met with any challenge that life may have in store for them.
It was NOT easy getting here… We lost two apartments, two cars, gone through bad business scams, got swindled out of our savings, I struggled with depression, Tenci struggled with anxiety, and yet we never gave up on our dream. Ufulu Child is not simply a business that sells holistic wellness products and methods, we are a home for anyone genuinely interested in lifestyle transformation, healthy habits, and spirituality.
I’m most proud of our Freedom Lifestyle Mastery membership program. It is jam-packed with everything anyone would need to create, upgrade, and maintain their optimal holistic wellness lifestyle at their own pace.
What sets us apart from some others in our field is the fact that Unconditional Love is our business model. This has empowered us through every struggle we’ve faced to this day. We use the power of love to keep creating and elevating our community. Ufulu Child is on a mission to help freedom seekers live a healthy lifestyle while unlocking next-level self-love. Our focus is not on a singular aspect of health and wellness alone. You won’t find another place like ours anywhere in the world!
People from all walks of life are becoming healthier, happier, spiritually empowered, and more of themselves. Everyday people join our community for the unconditional love notes, the easy-to-follow programs we offer, the 1-on-1 results coaching, private Freedom Tribe of Freedom Seekers shining on each other as we head towards our respective goals, and true Freedom Lifestyle Mastery.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
As true foodies at heart, our top place to visit in Atlanta is somewhere that brings the best of both worlds – big flavor you love and what your body needs to thrive! We’d kick off the day with some good vibes and giant wraps (with extra “Raw-B-Q” sauce) at Tassili’s Raw Reality. We stop by every time we’re in town! We’d likely stop by a Kemetic yoga workshop at the YogaSkills Kemetic Yoga Studio founded by Master Yogi, Yirser Ra Hotep, before the week is up.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wish to dedicate this shoutout to Tenci, my wife and Cofounder of Ufulu Child for being my rock and inspiration; Mooji, a spiritual leader and author of “Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space”, for guiding me to a profound understanding of Freedom; and Yirser Ra Hotep, Master Kemetic Yogi and Founder of the YogaSkills School of Kemetic Yoga, for expanding my understanding of Yoga.
Ufulu Child, Nick Hager Music
