 Early life
Jhené Aiko was born in Los Angeles, California and comes from a multicultural background. Her mother, Christina Yamamoto, is of Japanese, Spanish, Dominican descent and her father, Dr. Karamo Chilombo, is of African, Jewish, Yaqui, Choctaw, Cherokee, Navajo descent. She mostly says she is Japanese, African American, Native American based on percentages, but identifies with all of her ethnicities. She has four older full-siblings named Miyoko, Jamila, Jahi, and Miyagi. She also has three half-siblings (two older and one younger) through her father's side named Marcia, Dio, and Kareena. Her older sisters Miyoko and Jamila were in the R&B group Gyrl and toured with Immature, who were signed to MCA Records/Silas Records. This led to her first meeting with producer Chris Stokes when she was five years old. Eventually, Stokes heard her sing. When B2K signed with Epic Records, she was signed as well. She served as the opening act for B2K on the Scream Tour 3.
