Vegas Scene Speaks to Manika
How was it living in Las Vegas how do you like it what are your favorite things, places here? Okay what can I say; I was born in Las Vegas where we party everyday. Vegas has always and will continue be my home! I lived in LA just for a few years and I moved back because I missed Vegas so much. (I'd rather live in Vegas and travel to LA when I have to). When I say I love the nightlife here in Vegas, I don't just mean the partying (which by the way is the best in the world), what I mean is how when you are craving a nice dinner and shopping spree at 3am after a long studio session, Vegas has got you covered!
How did you get your first big break as an artist? I was discovered by Frank DiLe (Michael Jackson's long-time manager), who took on managing me during my first single release which followed with touring North America with One Direction :)
What would you say to young artist today especially in Las Vegas who are trying to get discovered? Song-write! If you don't already song-write get into it! No one is going to give you their hit song, you have to write it yourself.. And nothing can stop a hit song from grabbing attention out there ;)
Can you share some information about your next concert in Las Vegas? I just performed Wine Amplified music festival at MGM in Las Vegas along with 50 Cent, Panic! At The Disco and Sublime! This performance was out of this world! With fire dancers, pole dancers, live snakes, hand balancers, stilt walkers and many more surprises ;) I have some more tour dates I will be announcing soon keep checking on my website ManikaOfficial.com
Can you tell us more about the story behind your latest track ¨I Might Go Lesbian¨? I was pretty bold with this song... the story is pretty much all there in the lyrics of the song no holding back this time. I've encountered too many jerks of guys in my life... heartbreakers, liars, cheaters but have I've encountered many fabulous souls of women today.
What was it like to work with Tyga? I've always been a huge fan of Tyga's work! One of my favorite songs of all time is his "Rack City"... but now I'd have to say my favorite song of his is "I Might Go Lesbian (feat. Tyga)" verse 2 (his verse by the way LOL)... as he absolutely shut it down with his feature rap in my song !
