Tekitha is a Wu-Tang Clan affiliated female vocalist who was the Wu-Tang Clan's in-house singer (previously filled by Blue Raspberry) for the album Wu-Tang Forever, on which she also performed a solo track titled "Second Coming". She also filled in for the unavailable Mary J. Blige in the video for Ghostface Killah's "All That I Got Is You".

Initially signed to RZA's Razor Sharp Records and then to Ghostface's Starks Enterprise, Tekitha continued to make guest appearances on Wu-Tang projects such as Raekwon's The Lex Diamonds Story and has also collaborated with non-Wu artists including KRS-One and Armand Van Helden. While usually heard singing, her rapping can be heard on Cappadonna's "Pump Your Fist" and RZA's "Mantis".

Tekitha released her debut solo six song EP “The Prelude” in 2009. “The Prelude” featured all new original songs by Tekitha, with production from The RZA, Armand Van Helden, Bdotforealla of The Ahficionados and Jeff Jones/Joneszilla. The project was executive produced by Tekitha, The RZA and Jeff Jones under her new label Wisdom Body Entertainment distributed by The Orchard.
