Nisa Vanzant, the daughter of world-renowned life coach, inspirational speaker and TV personality Iyanla Vanzant, has passed away.

On Sunday evening, an announcement was posted on Iyanla’s official social media accounts about her daughter’s untimely passing.

“It is with great sorrow that we announce the transition of Nisa Vanzant the youngest daughter of our Beloved Iyanla Vanzant we are asking for your prayers. Please respect the privacy of her and her family at this time. Thank you.” 

It is unknown how Nisa passed away and no further details about her death have been made known to the public.

Iyanla is known most notably as the former host of Iyanla: Fix My Life, where she helped troubled families and individuals get back on track and improve their lives. She is also revered as an author, spiritual life coach and host of her current show The R Spot with Iyanla.

Iyanla: Fix My Life first aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network in 2012 and ran for eight seasons. She has been known to interview countless celebrities, including DMX, Karrueche Tran, Terrell Owens, Evelyn Lozada, Shereé Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey, to name a few.

In a recent interview with MSNBC, the 69-year-old Brooklyn native spoke on how to overcome crises and tragedy in life, stating that it was about taking it “one step at a time.” 

“Give yourself permission to have the initial shock and horrification of whatever the change is — the loss of a job, a divorce, even a health crisis,” she said at the time. “I think what happens is we try to, you know. Push through it. No, no, no! Stay there for a couple of hours, even a day or so, and then I promise you it is one step at a time.”

She continued: “Sometimes you’ll fall over, and sometimes you’ll stumble ahead, and sometimes you can barely get up. It’s one step at a time, and you may not know where that step is going to lead you …Your daily spiritual practice, that is your ticket, whatever you’re going into, whatever you’re coming out of — your daily spiritual practice: centering, grounding, breathing, listening, trusting. One step at a time That’s the only way you can do it, because you cannot rush through it.”

Shine My Crown is sending light, love and healing to the Vanzant family during this difficult time.
