“She wrote, captioning the clip:” Our angel, Braxton Blue. B Baker, has ascended.
“At the time of her ascendance, she laid in sacred form. There were no scratches there were no bruises, her internal and external being was completely pure.
“It has been a spiritual release. The angel He loaned us, God recovered.
Braxton was at a spiritual retreat, crafting and curating her art carefully. Since then, she has devoted her art to humanity and healing and has written two albums and three novels.

In an interview with SVGE Magazine in 2018, Richmond, Virginia-born star Braxton, talking about her career, said: “I have been using my creativity for years to build a unique brand.”
“I’ve been directing my own shoots, directing my own videos, styling myself, writing poetry, writing articles, writing raps, choreographing dances, styling myself, and styling others like it was nothing for years.
“Now that I’ve embraced that power, I don’t think the world is ready.”
