Before Love & Hip Hop[edit | edit source]
Masika Kalysha is a French Creole urban model, video vixen and singer, originally born in Champaign, Illinois. She is known for her appearances in numerous hip hop music videos for artists such as Flo Rida, Waka Flocka Flame and French Montana.
Love & Hip Hop franchise (2014–present)[edit | edit source]
Masika appears as a supporting cast member in season one of Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, which chronicles her blossoming romance with producer Mally Mall, unaware of his relationship with Nikki. The two women get into multiple altercations during the season, culminating in Nikki and her mother putting up a billboard plastered with Masika's mugshot from a previous shoplifting charge. Later, Masika moves onto Yung Berg, igniting a bitter feud with Hazel-E, which would last the rest of the series' run.
On November 5, 2014, Yung Berg was arrested for allegedly assaulting Masika, several hours after the taping of the reunion special. VH1 released a statement that he had been terminated from the show effective immediately.
On December 11, 2015, Masika announced that she was expecting a child with rapper Fetty Wap. After a season's absence, Masika returned to the show as a main cast member in season three, which chronicled the birth of her daughter, Khari Barbie Maxwell, and her subsequent co-parenting struggles with Fetty.
Masika was demoted to the supporting cast in season four, amid tensions with the show's producers, allegedly due to her refusal to film with new cast member Alexis Skyy. Sky is Fetty's ex-girlfriend, who was in a long term relationship with Fetty when Masika fell pregnant. The season revealed scenes of Kalysha breaking the fourth wall several times to express her displeasure with producers, as well as threatening legal action and storming off set. The feud became the season's leading storyline, with Masika, Moniece and Misster Ray pitted against Alexis, Hazel, Nikki, Zellswag and Lyrica in a series of brawls.
Masika quit the show after the season's reunion special, unhappy with her portrayal.
Masika also appears in the special Dirty Little Secrets.
