Reality television star and famed hairstylist Shekinah Joida Anderson, better known to fans as Shekinah Jo, is expanding her financial portfolio by opening a funeral home in Manchester, Georgia.
The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast member initially shared the opening of the Revival Funeral Home on September 16 via Instagram. On September 21, Anderson shared an additional announcement on IG and Facebook that contained a stunning image of herself with the funeral parlor in the background.
The 39-year-old entrepreneur revealed that she was open for business, what her new company offered and what set Revival Funeral Home apart from the competition.

Anderson passionately told supporters and followers that she wasn’t there to “get over on” anyone and would take care of patrons who supported her business. She even advised funeral directors to apply for a job at Revival, promising to pay well in the seven-minute video.
