With Mother’s Day just around the corner, AOL Music invited some artists and their mothers to stop in for a Q&A, with only the moms asking the questions.
Ashanti and her mother stopped by, along with her younger sister Shia to take part in the fun (and somewhat backwards) interview session. Ashanti dishes on lessons learned from her mother, as well as the strength of women in her family.
“You always taught me to be a leader, not a follower,” said Ashanti in the below clip. “As simple as it is, it has always stuck with me and I’m very grateful for that advice.”
