Soullow, who plans to marry Neffe this fall, holds his future wife close to his heart. “I proposed at her birthday party and I was nervous as crap, but nobody knows that (laughs),” he admits. “I planned it for eight months prior.”
Neffe doesn’t blame her past on her future. “I still have a lot of growing to do and I know that God will help me through. I can’t say that I’m totally healed or over all that has happened in my life,” she says. “I can’t predict the future and can only live life and learn the best part of me.”
A former head cook at Applebee’s, rapper Soullow is always low key. “People claim it’s freedom of speech but these blogs are just another way for folks to talk about people without showing their faces,” he says, about the gossip written about him and Neffe. "If they want to exercise that freedom in a devilish or godly manner then that’s up to them, but I won’t participate in it.

I’m trying to encourage Black men to do what we used to do back in the sixties before all this stuff corrupted our neighborhood and go back to the script and learn to keep your feet on the ground and take care of your woman."
Despite reports that Frankie Lons, Neffe and Keyshia Cole’s mother, was in a fatal car accident, she’s home in Atlanta, alive and well. Here she’s pictured with her dog Lola in New York City. “I don’t know how the rumor got started,” says Neffe. “But I just dropped her off so I know she’s okay.”
