CHIKA: A New York Star On The Rise
CHIKA is originally from Montgomery, Alabama. She recently relocated to one of the world’s music capitals – New York, to focus on her music career. She also comes from a very supportive family and keeps them in the forefront of her mind when times get rough.
“My family also keeps me motivated. I have parents and a sibling with special needs that I want to be able to take care of. When things get really hard, I think about that. They have tried their best to support me, so I‘ll bust my ass to support them,” she mentions.
In her latest viral video, she discusses how there are people in the rap game who take their platform for granted. Mentioning that there’s so much in society that needs to be addressed and it’s not. CHIKA is fighting for a spot in the game so her voice can be heard and lives can be changed. Similar to how J. Cole, who she admires, pierces the souls of his fans with his lyrics.
