In 1992, Zakiya was the winner of Hal Jackson's Talented Teens and then went on to win Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater. After that, she was signed to Ric Wake's production company as part of a girl group called Faces and then started her solo career.
After that, Zakiya was working on her sophomore album, but unfortunately the album was shelved. She released a 12" single, "I Like" which didn't chart at all.
After that, it seemed that Zakiya faded into obscurity. These days, she resides in Pennsylvania, retired from the music business.
