DC Young Fly’s deceased partner, Jacky Oh, received major sales for her beauty business after her unexpected death.

Jacky, real name Jacklyn Smith, has received over 2,000 orders for her business, J Nova Collection, since her recent passing, per TMZ. The increase in orders even caused the website to shut down temporarily, TMZ reported.

The beauty brand received its name from Smith’s six-year-old daughter, Nova. According to TMZ, Nova may be next in line to run the brand when she is old enough. Smith had three children. Nova’s two siblings, Nala and Prince’Nehemiah, are two years old and 10 months.

Her colleagues expressed their sadness at her sudden death. BET Media Group said in an Instagram post, We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed.”

Rapper Cardi B said in two Instagram stories, “So heartbreaking,” and “My heart [hurts] for them beautiful babies.” Comedian D.L. Hughley wrote on Instagram, “My heart breaks for my young brother [DC Young Fly] and his children. What you see on TV is only a sliver of who this young brother is. He is a strong, solid, determined young man of faith. He’s a family man, which is why this cuts so deep. We love you, my family and I send every ounce of love we have and prayers for strength to you and your family through this time. Stay strong in your faith brother.”
