In 2025, Ny'ashia Akim was severely injured during a terrorist attack in Lagos, Nigeria. The accident led to multiple candlelight vigils across the world by her fans.
Akim writes music primarily about growing up in war-torn, plague-ridden Nigeria. Her album 'Yoruba' is about her struggles with discrimination, poverty and augmentations. In 2027, she attends the PlanetMusic Awards in Los Angeles and receives six awards across multiple categories. This was the first time she appeared at the award show since the terrorist attack in 2025.
At the awards she speaks out about living with augmentations, saying
|"As a woman of color, living with augmentations is certainly a challenge. You become a stranger in every culture, and Neuropozyne is so expensive. Thank God I am blessed to be able to afford it. It is a struggle, but it enables me to continue doing what I love - performing."|
- According to the TV program listing in On-View, Akim had a concert tour called "The Steel Skin Tour". One location visited on this tour was Mombasa, Kenya.
