There's a new saucy showstopper in the Dancehall Game and her name is Nicky Bling. Already building a rep in dancehall circles for her singalong hooks, feisty intros and her pitch perfect delivery, Nicky is about to step things up as she has joined forces with star-maker emcee Nuffy.

 


"Her manager, Andrew British approached me a few weeks ago just after I returned from England with Lisa Hyper, and I arranged a meeting with them at my bar in Portmore. Mi did impress wid her straight off, and we tweak some of her words in her verse dem, and show her a few things but mi impressed, so she ah the new filly inna the Nuffy stable right now," Nuffy said.

The bodacious Nicky Bling has a killer smile and a take-no-prisoners attitude, and with Nuffy's help, she is looking to stake her claim in the
music business.

“I am coming to get my piece of the action,” she said confidently. “I can write, I can perform and I definitely know I have what it takes to
make it in the business.”

Nicky Bling first showed up on the radar with a single called Real Independence on the Kingston
19 riddim.

Born Shereen Nicola Nembhard, she grew up in the Salisbury Plains area
of west rural St. Andrew. She attended Allman Hill All Age and
Pembroke Hall Secondary and after graduating, she studied practical
nursing at Wilmot’s Academy. However, she soon grew bored with
practical nursing and did not complete the course.

“Even if I was enthused at first, my interest waned after a while, my
love was and always will be music,” she said.
Nicky Bling said that her father first took her to a studio when she
was only two years old. At age 9, she was performing at local
community stage shows where her uncle would put her on a crate so that
the audience could see her sing and deejay.
When she became a teenager, her family moved to Nannyville in Kingston
where she became somewhat of a sensation in the area and a regular
performer at their T.G.I.F Fridays stage shows.

“I would go to the Penthouse studio and I would see Beenie Man and
Alley Cat but I only got to go into the studio once and I never did
anything but look around,” she said.

Nicky Bling never gave up her love for music even when she became an
adult and began to hold down a steady nine-to-five. She has been the
manager of a successful hardware business for the last five years but
every weekend is devoted to the world of music.

“From Monday to Friday is work, but I rave from Friday to Sunday
night. I go to various places, dances, entertainment events, round
robins, anything to do with music. My friends love it when I am
around, I bring the vibes,” she said.
