Shaniqua is a very popular pop idol amongst teenagers. Her latest hit is titled Baby, Don't Be Frontin'. She is the main attraction of NYC's 3rd Annual Hip-Hop Video Awards, and plays at the ceremony's finale. Her number is even broadcast on several TV screens in the streets of New York City.
From what is shown in the show, Shaniqua is an all-around cool woman. She enjoys her time onstage as well as her fans, whomever they may be. Even the over-exaggerated enthusiasm of her fans does not affect her mood. She's always seen with a smile on her face.
Shaniqua is a tan-skinned woman with long, black hair. Her pop star attire is composed of a pink belly button shirt with loose sleeves and a pair of blue short shorts. She also wears white knee-high boots with pink straps, two bracelets on her right wrist, two large earrings, and a pendant around her neck.
