Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo, better known as Jhené Aiko or simply Jhené, is a American singer-songwriter and
recording artist from Los Angeles, California.
Aiko began her career being known as "Lil' Fizz's cousin", however she is not actually related to him.
It was used as a marketing tool suggested by Sony and Epic to promote her through the R&B group B2K
and attract an audience, though Aiko affirms that she and Lil' Fizz grew up together and were
close like family.
