Last week Amina and I went with Maliah to Kay Slay’s Streetsweeper Radio on Shade 45. When we’re leaving, and I was a few feet away from them, one of the security guards in the building came up to me. “Dude…I just want to shake your hand for even knowing her.”
I first fell in love with Maliah when I first saw her pics with Tregan of TKM Studios years ago. If stalking wasn’t a felony in this country, I would moved across the country and been living in the bushes outside of her house lol.
Her instantly popularity lead to her features in pretty much every magazine possible; Smooth and SmoothGirl, XXL, King, and Blackmen. Her King “Backshot” pic should go down as one of the best ever. Ahhh forget one of the best…THE BEST!
She’s also has plenty of memorable video leads on her resume, including Lloyd’s “Get It Shawty,” Twista’s “Girl Tonite,” Fabolous’ “Make You Better,” T.I.’s “What You Know,” and most recently Drake’s “Find Your Love.”
All of those pale in comparison to her spot in Pitbull’s “Bojangles,” where all you really need is a silhouette to know that it’s Maliah! How that doesn’t have 20 million views on YouTube is beyond me.
2010 has been a hell of a year for her, gracing the cover of Smooth, along with being featured in every issue as the Smooth Columnist, and being the first girl to ever receive a SmoothGirl tribute issue.
