The American songwriter has been critical in shaping Nikita’s career. Nikita says H.E.R. has been able to make a breakthrough despite her physical looks.

The Nigerian singer has had a serious impact on Nikita’s career more so by the fact that she produces some of her music.

“I think it is really cool that she is into production. I think that’s like the coolest thing about her,” Nikita says.

Nikita is in competition with the multiple Grammy award-winning singer although they play very different leagues. Nikita however believes Beyonce is an inspiration that anyone one can achieve what they want.

Unknown to many, Nikita’s mother has been her manager for a long time since she was starting off her career. Nikita’s mother has also pushed her to her full potential in her career pursuit.

Although Liz Lenjo is not in the music industry she has been Nikita's legal representative for some time and her honesty has been impactful in shaping her to who she is.
