We always love seeing an Old Schooler representing the old school well and Erykah Badu’s beautiful mom is doing just that. Badu looks exactly like her mother and she and her sister can almost pass as twins. Check out the recent pics below of Mama Badu and sister KoKo…

Erykah Badu’s  Momma is now representing the Old School VERY well and her sister is looking as good as ever too. Check them out now though…

Erykah’s mom, Kolleen Gipson a.k.a. Queenie, is making her 60’s look like the new 40’s! Kolleen was a theatrical actor back when Erykah and her siblings were youngins. Unfortunately, she had to end her acting career to raise her three children. Although she said she ALWAYS encouraged them to pursue artistic careers:

Kolleen explained to OkayPlayer that she always told her kids to “find your passion and you make sure you can make money doing that. Anything that they did that was artistic, whether it was singing or dancing or even being a cheerleader or writing or whatever, I encouraged that–because I just didn’t see them with 9 to 5 jobs. Although there is nothing wrong with it, because that’s how we ate. But I just saw something different for them,” revealed Kolleen.

If Erykah Badu’s sister, Koryan Nayrock Wright a.k.a. KoKo,  looks familiar to you, it’s because she sings background for her big sister. She’s also been featured in Erykah’s “Bag Lady” video and several of Erykah’s live performance videos, including the one below when she along with erykah and the rest of the band performed one of the dopest versions of “Other Side of The Game” ever! Koryan is the background singer standing to the left side of the screen in the video below…

Erykah Badu and her brother, Eeven Wright, are very close and according to her website, he ‘travels with her and serves as her merchandise manager’ and also ‘took part in recording Erykah’s Worldwide Underground album.’ All this time has gone by and most of us never even knew she had a brother. Like we always say, we learn something new around these parts everyday!
