Born Alice Faye Williams on the 22nd day of January, 1947 in North Carolina, United States, Afeni Shakur Davis is estimated to have a net worth of $50 million. She is best known as the mother to the late Tupac Amaru Shakur. She is also an ex-member of the Black Panther, a political activist as well as a philanthropist.
All through her life, Afeni has involved herself in music and philanthropy. A year after the death of her son Tupac, Afeni Shakur founded the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation and the Amaru Entertainment thanks to the money that came from the posthumous albums of her son. Amaru Entertainment holds all of Tupac’s materials that haven’t been produced just yet and the Shakur Foundation offers young men and women in and around Georgia with art programs.
Another of Afeni’s wealth comes from a clothing line she launched seven years after the death of Tupac and named it Makaveli with the aim of keeping the legacy of his son alive through fashion products. Portions of the proceeds that come from this brand are directed towards the best interests of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.
As a member of the Black Panther, Afeni Shakur was accused of being responsible for several bombings. An act she denied by standing for herself in a court of law. This made her very popular.
Afeni Shakur has two children, Tupac (deceased) and Sekyiwa.
