Master P’s daughter is following in the footsteps of her older brother, Romeo, by landing her own show on Nickelodeon.
Fifteen-year-old Cymphonique Miller will star in “How To Rock,” debuting Feb. 4, and the network already has plans to make her the pop phenome of 2012. To promote the show, they’ve created an eight-part video about the teen and the song, “Only You Can Be You,” which she sings in the first episode of the series, is already available on iTunes.
Margie Cohn, Nickelodeon’s president for original programming, said they’re hoping Cymphonique will be “a big, fat, giant hit.”
Master P on the other hand was a little hesitant about putting his baby girl in the spotlight.
“I tried everything in my power to stop this girl because this can be a hard, sick business — really easy to get taken advantage of,” he told AllHipHop.com. “I guess you can’t hold raw talent back.”
With her father by her side, Cymphonique should be able to keep a good head on her shoulders. It’s great to see a young black girl headlining a show on a major kid’s network. Are your children fans of Nickelodeon?
