Stokley is married to Sylvia Williams. The happy couple has a daughter named Aaliyah Kellogg Williams.
He said that the members of ”Mint Condition” were quite pissed because of the marriage of Toni Braxton and Keri Lewis.
”Everybody measures “success” in different ways. You don’t always have to look at that in terms of money. I look at the camaraderie we shared.”
”I mean, the voice is familiar still but there’s also a freshness about it that you haven’t heard or at least you haven’t heard in a while.”
”Life is meant to be experienced. I’m still relatively young and people seem to have a little bit of interest in what I’m doing.”
”Drums are very physical, depending on what kind of music you’re playing. Speed metal for sure. Jazz, same thing, a lot of technique.”
”I have always believed that my role in Mint Condition was to ensure that we represented something that was needed.”
