For the month of August , I had the opportunity to interview the first lady of Friendship Productions, Mrs. Shereena Osai!
Tap into the second edition of the FP Insider:
T.Marie: Tell us a little about Shereena Osai
Shereena: Shereena Osai is a complex person with many gifts and talents she is trying to use to glorify God. I am at a very unique place in life, God is calling me to a higher level in ALL areas of life, so I am under major construction right now.
T.Marie: What is your role at FP?
Shereena: I am the Vice President of Friendship Productions, I also like to call myself the Administrative Coordinator. I help Esosa come up with event concepts, and I help with administrative tasks and organization. I am also the Evangelism Coordinator.
T.Marie: What’s your most memorable FP moment?
Shereena: My most memorable FP moment was at the Don’t Waste Your Life concert, June 13, 2009. Lecrae was on stage ministering and the presence of God was so strong in the palce. I was in a deep place of worship. I opened my eyes and I saw 1500 people with their arms raised, giving praise to God. And at that moment I saw how far God has brought FP, and how far we have yet to go, and I began to weep for God’s faithfulness to us is so true.
T.Marie: How long have you been serving with FP?
Shereena: I have been serving with FP for about two and a half years.
T.Marie: If you could relive any FP moment what would it be?
Shereena: The first Canton Jones concert way back in 2005! That was my first fp concert. I had just finished my sophomore year at Western Michigan University and my friends and I drove from Kalamazoo to Detroit for the event. We had such a good time! I was so impressed with the young people I saw going forth in their callings. Esosa as the promoter and DJ, Joshua Generation Dancing, Rock Nation moving bolding in music under the anointing…it was amazing to me. It inspired me to pursue the things God was calling me to, and really showed me that I did not have to wait until I was thirty to move in my calling.
T.Marie : You’re a stylist right, tell us more about your passion.
Shereena: My passion is to help others express their inner beauty on the outside as well. I see so many people who do not realize how beautiful they are. Many people suffer from low self esteem, and have been abused. People hide behind the “I don’t care” attitude, because they don’t think they are beautiful or attractive (men and women). But we are made in the image of God, and if you read scriptures that descirbe heaven and how God looks you will see that God is beautiful and is surrounded by beautiful things. So I just want to help show people the beauty they already have, and help them present themselves accordingly.
T.Marie: Tell the readers about tes-ti-phy.
tes-ti-phy is the clothing line God gave me. The fashion industry is very dark and Godless. As a fashion design student, I struggled with the idea of working in such a dark industry, and I was not sure how I could live a holy life in the industry. So God gave me the idea for tes-ti-phy in 2005. And the entire purpose is to demonstrate that even fashion must bow down and glorify God. I praise God for my father, Hilton Kelley, who funded the entire start up of the business.. The web site www.tes-ti-phy.com
is now finished so readers can check it out!
What’s your heart’s desire as the Head woman behind FP?
Shereena: As the head woman of FP I just want God to be glorified, I want us to build the ministry God designed and cause people to respond to the love of God through our labor. Obedience to God equals success, and Godly success leads to eternal rewards, and our focus is on eternity.
