Nikki Wade is a multitalented artist, who dares not limit herself in the realm of entertainment. Originally from Seattle, Washington, Nikki has been a performance artist since the age of four; with her foundation being in theater and dance. After studying classical ballet, modern and jazz dance for 10 years, at Cornish College of the Arts; along with a 14 year acting run (having performed in close to 100 plays around the city), Nikki found her niche as an R&B vocalist, where she became well known in the metro Seattle area for her soul stirring vocals, sexy persona and elaborate stage shows and was aptly nicknamed "The Diva".
In pursuit of a serious music career, Nikki moved to Atlanta Georgia in 1996 and in 1998 rekindled her creative flare, by embarking on Atlanta's spoken word scene at Yin Yang Cafe. Thus began a steamy love affair of music & prose intermingled, to create a new type of viewing and listening pleasure. Since she has been on Atlanta's entertainment "scene", Nikki has not only recorded with some of Atlanta’s most reputable producers (i.e., AKON, Chuckey Charles, Teddy Bishop, etc.), but has also been an opening act for soul singers Bilal; Raheim DeVaughn; Algebra; Donnie and Eric Roberson; been a featured guest on such radio stations as WVEE V-103.3, WAMJ 102.5, WRFG 89.3 & WCLK 91.9; worked as director of fundraising for the National Action Network Atlanta Chapter (2008-2009) and debuted her first music video “U R The Only 1”(2009).
After having her poetic work published in V-103 Joyce Littel's book "Poetic Moments", in 2002, she re-introduced her acting skills by capturing the lead role in two plays~"Soul Food or Fast Food" and "My Soul Untitled"; as well as creating and hosting an ongoing erotic poetry set at Apache Cafe called "Soulrotica". In 2003, Ms. Wade began working for MetroBoyz Entertainment Group, as an event coordinator/booking agent/host/performer, after co-creating the neo-soul event "Brown Sugar Thursdays”; was nominated for the 2003/2004 “Underground Icon of the year” award at the 2003 Atlanta Underground Awards and in the same year toured with independent female rap group, the Caustic Dames. Later, “The Diva” Nikki Wade was a recurring guest host on the Herside.net network and star of the Herside.net comedy “The Truth About us”.
In 2007, Nikki founded DIVADOM ENTERTAINMENT GROUP and went on to successfully produce several benefit concerts; two bi-coastal tours (Soulstice Concert Series w/Darien Brockington and The Return of Brown Sugar Soul w/Donnie & Kimberly Nichole); establish the Christine Marie Hunter Cancer Fund for African American Senior Citizens and begin work on her premier musical stage play “Little Black Girl’s Blues”, which premiered to rave reviews, at Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center, in June 2011. For all her work, Passkey Entertainment awarded Nikki the title “Ms. ATL’s Hottest”, in November 2012. You name it; she’s done it...A talent like Nikki Wade is undeniable and cannot be ignored, as she continues to blaze the stage to infinite measures!
