Early Life
Born Alexana Ni’Yai Allen on May 12, 2001, in Dillon, South Carolina. She got her nickname from her grandparents who could not pronounce her birth name. As the only child of Tumika and Reggie Charles Allen, she always wished for sisters and brothers. She spent much of her time at grandparents just to play with her cousins. Her older cousin, Ciera, introduced her to hip-hop and dance. It was then she begain to create dance routines to different music.
Niya’s parents divorced when she was 8 years old. Due to her parents separation, she moved to Columbia, South Carolina with her mother. In a new city without any siblins or cousins to have fun with, she joined her elementary school’s step team. She enriched her dance and music influences through the years participating in school competitions. Relocating once again to another part of Columbia, Northeast, she didn’t like certain things about the new middle school’s step team and decided not to join. Niya continued to create dance moves to different music.When she reached 7th grade, she decided to start her own dance group, Young Envy. Niya began to listen more to K Camp, August Alsina, Chris Brown, Ciara, & Nicki Minaj. Her group created more dance routines to the music of these artist.
Rapper / Songwritter
Niya’s Music career begain at the age of 12, when she wrote her 1st rap “I Am Fresh” and presented it to her mother. It was then her mother took notice that Niya was not only a great dancer but also a songwritter in the making. The combination of music and her mother’s disapline of making her read books beyond her grade level helped her to not only keep good grades, but to also shaped her into a young artist of strong melodic and lyrical footing. Her 2nd rap “Rockin with the Best” is becoming a favorite of her new fans. She nows shares her talents with the world through her music and dance routines on her social websites, step shows, festivals, and events around the city. We look forward to the success and growth of Niya, the young MC representing 803…

Lizards on my porch…doing what?



It stormed and rained on and off yesterday here in Columbia.  As I was walking out the door just as the storm passed and it stopped raining, the sun was just breaking through the clouds. A small movement in my peripheral made me pause, and I find these two in a delicate position to say the least.
