Her father, a pediatrician, is of African American and Native American descent, while her mother – Christina Yamamoto – is of Spanish, Japanese and Dominican descent.

Jhené has an interesting childhood at Ladera Heights (the place of her birth), and she also registered for vocal classes in Culver City, California before getting to the big stage of her career. She joined the popular R & B group B2K as a vocalist, and she burst into the scene when she began appearing in the group’s several music videos. Aiko attracted more attention because she was introduced as Lil’ Fizz’s cousin – which was a mere promotional strategy.

According to records, she was baptized at the Pentecostal Foursquare Church at age 16, and it was made known that she was in a relationship with O’Ryan (an American R & B musician) from 2005 to 2008. But before putting a ‘full’ stop to their relationship, the union produced a baby on November 19, 2008 – a baby girl called Namiko Love.

She was expected to release her debut album in 2003 through her labels (which includes Epic, Sony, and The Ultimate Group). However, it was never released as the young teenager demanded to be released from the labels to enable her to pursue her education.

Jhené made a return to the big stage in 2011 when she released Sailing Soul(s). Few months after she released her first-length project, she signed a recording contract with ARTium – which was the record label of American record producer No I.D.

Jhené lost her brother to cancer in 2012. Before Miyagi died, Aiko recorded a song on her computer that was originally meant to be heard by her brother alone – titled ‘For My Brother’

In 2013, Aiko worked with ARTium and Def Jam to release Sail Out. She also released other singles including ‘Bed Peace’,  ‘3:16 am’ and ‘The Worst’. The same year, she was involved in a car accident along with three other persons (her daughter, her older sister and O’Ryan). While baby Namiko was unharmed in the accident, Jhene picked some injuries on her wrist and chin.

She married Oladipo Omishore on March 16, 2016. But unfortunately, just five months later, Jhené filed for a divorce – which was eventually finalized in October 2017 (Jhené cited ‘irreconcilable differences’)

There were speculations she was dating Big Sean since 2016, and their union was eventually confirmed on social media – both have continued in a relationship since then.


Jhené no doubt has a sweet voice that helped shot her to her current spot. She was described as the ‘female answer’ to Frank Ocean by Jim Farber of the New York Daily News.

It was also agreed that she sings like Aaliyah, Brandy, Ciara, and Cassie. Someone also said her lyrics are ‘catch and emotive’, and that they have no boundaries.

Her music is seen as an alternative to contemporary R & B, a new generation R & B.  And besides PBR & B, she explores various genres including Hip Hop and classic R & B.

Jhené, who enjoys writing her own music with her own hands, writes lines, or a poem which she combines into melodies. The singer said she writes as a freestyler, putting down her feelings with her pen.


Jhené married Oladipo Dot da Genius in March 2016 but divorced him five months later. The same year, she started dating Big Sean – arousing rumours that she intentionally dumped Omishore for Big Sean. Some people even believed she cheated on her ex-husband when they were still married, with claims she is already dating Big Sean before the divorce came.

However, the singer recently took to Twitter to clarify the issue with some tweets. According to her, she never cheated on anyone when she met Big Sean. She revealed she was in a relationship with someone who still has a secret marriage with his baby mama in 2012, and they separated when she eventually found out.

Then she called her ‘friend’ (Big Sean) and went with him to a basketball game – they went to the game NOT as a couple. She also added that she went home after the game without any intimate stuff with Big Sean.

The pair then began seeing more often, and initially, they didn’t confirm rumours about their relationship. But after being seen together multiple times, it became tougher to hide what was going on between them (but she insisted they were mere friends  and they only hung out with friends since 2012)

However, right now, the pair are lovers but are yet to get married. Both have collaborated to make music – they worked together to create the album ‘Twenty88’ in 2016.
