Sunrise: July 16, 1997 – Sunset: June 14, 2023
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelations 21:4).
Mykai Daniels (Kai) was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to parents Kymberly Vaughn-Daniels and Clyde Daniels on July 16, 1997. He accepted Christ at an early age under Rev. M.C. Potter and was a member of the Children’s choir, Sunday School, and Youth Church.
As a youth, Mykai participated in the Mighty Might football Club and PinKing Wrestling. In these two sports, he excelled, winning a team football championship and an individual championship as a wrestler.
Mykai attended Alcott Elementary, Wilson Middle School, and McLain High School. Mykai was employed at Refractory Anchors Incorporated in which he learned various skills. As he pursued his musical interest, Mykai branded himself as Drop3; he decided to pave his own way through writing lyrics and rapping. This became his natural gift. Mykai’s two albums, “Money Can’t Buy You Loyalty” and “Purpose” demonstrated an artistic genius with the ability to manipulate words with finesse. His music artistry manifested his gift as a lyricist, poet, storyteller, and a rapper. Mykai’s music soaked in emotion, truth, resilience, and inspiration not read in a book but seen with his own eyes and in his own life.
Mykai was a beacon of light, laughter, and leadership. Truly, he lived life to the fullest. On June 14, he was tragically taken from us too soon – 25 eternally. His life was a testament to his belief to never let anyone define you, stay blessed, and persevere through trials and tribulations. Drop3’s most quoted scripture, Isaiah 43:2, was his personal testimony that the Word does not lie, and God will always be with you! Mykai left an indelible mark on everyone he touched, and his spirt will remain with us always.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Minnie Lee Daniels, his cousin, Fredrick Farmer, and his best friend, Aaron Armstrong-Ross.
Mykai leaves behind his two children, who were the loves of his life: son, Mykailen DaSharian aka lil kai and daughter, Mykaila DaSharia, aka Millions; bonus son, Bray’Don Chaplin; brothers, Micheaux (Sheronda), Mari, Malyk (Taylor); and sister, MiAusha; his loving mother, Kymberly Vaughn-Daniels, his father, Clyde Daniels; girlfriend – baby girl, Shajuanta aka TayTay; children’s mother, Monisha Avington; nieces, Mylee, My’Koni, DaMaria, DaMai; nephew, DaMarius II; and a host of cousins, aunts, uncles, relatives and friends.
Services will be held at Antioch Baptist Church, 110 W 56th St N. Tulsa, Ok 74126, at 11 am on July 15, 2023.
