Trying Various Genres Including Rap/Hip-Hop She Has Now Found Her Niche Where She Started — in Pop.
Having shared the stage with famous artists such as 50 cent, Ariana Grande, Cody Simpson, One Direction, Olly Murs, Sublime, Panic! at the Disco and more, singer, songwriter Manika (pronounced Ma-NEE-ka) is on the verge of becoming an entity on her own.
If you hadn’t yet, you may soon hear her most recent feat, her latest single written and co-produced by her, “I Might Go…” featuring hit superstar rapper Tyga. The music video quickly generating more than 400,000 views as she humorously teases the idea that she might go lesbian as she lists her many frustrations with men. A charismatic Tyga steps in saying he’s a one-on-one kind of man, in an effort to close the gap, creating a sizzling display of romantic tension.
Manika, who resides in Los Angeles, is not just another talented pop star, she was discovered by Michael Jackson’s long-time manager, music executive Frank DiLeo. She has since proven her musical strengths having written and co-produced her new single “How Can I Love” (playing on Sirius XM & Top 40 radio) that has charted at number 7 on the U.S. Billboard Sales Chart. She incorporated videos from her fans into her “How Can I Love” music video in a way that is very different from any other music video concept. Manika credits its huge success to how the song’s lyrics relate to such a personal, deeply emotional level to a diverse crowd.
Manika paid her dues while touring with One Direction on their North American tour, performed at scores of venues including KISS FM’s Wango Tango, the Hollywood Style Awards, the nationally televised Hallmark Hollywood Christmas Parade, headlined the Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Tour and headlined Pepsi’s Shop Til You Rock Tour.

Manika recently headlined Light nightclub in Mandalay Bay Las Vegas and Hakkasan nightclub in MGM Las Vegas. She performed on the main stage at MGM’s 2015 “Wine Amplified” music festival with 50 Cent, Sublime, and Panic! At The Disco.
Her resume also lists her as a rapper, producer, published author and reality TV-show host. She is host of a new reality TV-series “Global Beauty Masters” which airs on the TLC TV Network and on Discovery. The series is the only competition and reality show that celebrates the beauty profession by integrating hair, makeup, nails and styling, from the mainstream to the extreme.
