Born Shani-Love Dishmen, her parents were playing rap to her since her embryonic days in the womb. Shani created a hybrid of her legal name and the influence of Fetty Wap's Remy Boys, to become Remy Girl Ni. Ni's parents have been a great influence on her life to motivate and inspire her to develop her talents while prioritizing school as well.
As a confident, focused, ten year old, Ni is prepared for the social changes that seem to be a fact in the middle school dynamic. Jealousy may occur and some friends are already asking her not to change. Already experiencing this, she's ready for whatever middle school challenges may bring and friends she may lose and gain based solely on her fame.
Affiliated with RGF Island, Ni is signed with the same label as Fetty Wap, and she represents Remy girls and Remy Boys. After making the song "Remy Girl Gang", she credits 2Gs for bringing her into the RGF circle. Remy Girl Ni has two singles,"We Litty" & "Remy Girl Gang" which are out right now on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon. She has already expressed an interest in possibly developing a tv show concept of her own, which she intends on negotiating with Nickelodeon and Disney, while also seeking sponsorship opportunities. From there Ni keeps her focus and continues to pursue her career.
Truthfully, Ni is a workaholic! She goes to the studio every week; every other day, working on 30 songs ready to be dropped. By doing this, Ni is prepared and ready to go. She shared her first official video "We Litty" with us. Ni played a role in directing and producing this video with her father Cory; from choosing location, sponsors, and costumes, Ni's confidence and joy are evident from start to finish. When watching the finished product, the elation on Ni's face expresses the joy and love she has for her work.
Before leaving us, Ni shared her views on the world today. Again, her maturity shined through. She expressed that she doesn't judge people on their race and she believes everyone deserves a second chance. Remy Girl Ni would love to see an end to racism and have the world filled with more peace and love. At the tender age of 10, her potential is truly endless.
Born and raised in Clermont St. Ann, Jamaica to a mother who gave him away at 2 years old, Don Reid had no immediate family members. A poor, malnourished little boy, he found himself being mothered by Miss Louise (Miss Lu), a complete stranger.
Don reflects on his past, including going to Clermont All-Age School; which was approximately 4 miles from his house. He walked it bare-footed as he had no shoes. In his small community, he was known as the little boy that was given away. However, he was extremely bright and well read. A spelling bee champion and involved in the schools' Drama Club, Don Reid did not allow his circumstances to dictate his future. Don shares of his 1st unconditional love and support system, which came from Rev. Tuller, the local pastor from his church. "I'm proud of you", words that stuck with Don as he reflects on the impact of that relationship; Rev Teller treated him like a son. High school was a complete 180 degree turn for Don. The onslaught of puberty & the assumed freedom to attend or not to attend high school had him on a path to failure. Don recalls a high school friend who embraced him unfortunately was a certified loser. Due to his influence on Don, they would ‘go to school and do everything; except go to school'. Certified the class dunce, he was still able to finish 19th out 40 students.
After a stern and sincere discussion with the principal, coupled with the threat of Miss Lu's belt, Don straightened up and became a straight-A student. Don shares his journey into the medical field via a threat, and his transition into the banking profession. The undeserved care and advice from the people God has placed so strategically throughout his life allowed Don to confidently walk through all doors that were opening.
"Throughout all these experiences, I have learned to laugh at myself", among the many jewels dropped by this ‘little boy that was given away', now known as Don Reid. Enjoy this riveting, honest and hilarious SQR Podcast production.
