BIOGRAPHY

GERNIKER WAS BORN ON THE SIXTEEN OF DECEMBER AT THE SAN FERNANDO GENERAL HOSPITAL.

HER MOTHER HAILS FROM NEWTON GUYANA AND HER DAD WHO WAS BORN AND GREW UP ON BERTRAND STREET,SANFERNANDO, TRINIDAD. 

HER PARENTS WERE PENPALS, AND HER DAD MARRIED HER MOTHER IN GUYANA AND BROUGHT HER TO TRINIDAD. GERNIKER CAME FROM AN INTERRACIAL BACKGROUND, HER MOTHER OF CHINESE , PORTUGUSE AND AFRICIAN DECENT. HER DAD AN EAST INDIAN. SHE GREW UP IN LA-ROMAIN AND CAME FROM A BIG FAMILY OF TWO BROTHERS AND FOUR SISTERS. SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST CHILD IN HER FAMILY. IT WAS NOT EASY FOR HER AT TIMES IN THE HOUSEHOLD. YES, SHE LIVED IN A NICE HOUSE, BUT A LOT OF FAMILY ISSUES, AND WITH HER DAD GETTING LAID OFF FROM HIS JOB AS AN OFF SHORE WORKER, JUST ADDED TO THE PRESSURE. SHE FOUND HER JOY IN MUSIC. IT WAS A WAY FOR HER TO ESCAPE HER FRUSTRATIONS.

SHE ATTENDED THE SEVEN DAY ADVENTIST HIGH SCHOOL IN SAN FERNANDO, AND SANG IN THE HIGH SCHOOL CHURCH CHOIR.

GERNIKER LOOKS UP TO ARTISTE IN THE RAPSO ARTFORM LIKE BROTHER RISISTANCE, WHOM YEAR’S LATER WOULD BECOME HER TEACHER. IN THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND AND SIX SHE GRADUATED FROM BROTHER RISISTANCE’S RAPSO WORKSHOP SCHOOL OF MUSIC. ‘CONSCIOUS’ THAT’S THE WORD TO DESCRIBE GERNIKER. SHE IS A CONSCIOUS POET AND SONGWRITER.

HER FAMILY DID NOT TAKE HER MUSIC AS A RAPSO ARTISTE SERIOUSLY AT FIRST, UNTIL THEY STARTED TO SEE HER APPEARING IN NEWSPAPER’S AND ON TELEVISION. GOD PRAISE BROTHER RISISTANCE. HE SPOKED TO GERNIKER AND THAT’S WHERE THE ENCOURAGEMENT REALLY CAME FROM.

SHE WAS NOT ALWAY’S A SOLO ACT. SHE SPENT FOUR MONTH’S AS THE LEAD SINGER IN A GROUP CALLED ‘ROSETTA STONE’. GERNIKER FELT THE NEED TO FIND HER OWN MUSIC AT THAT TIME.

SHE ALSO DID A LOT OF BACK UP FOR MANY OTHER SINGER’S AS WELL. SOME NAME’S INCLUDE OZY MAJIC OF HOME FRONT, ONIKA BOSTIC AND ISSAC BLACKMAN TO NAME A FEW.

SHE IS POPULAR WITH HER FRIENDS. [WHAT MAKE’S HER SO?] HER UNIQUE STYLE AND HER GOOD LOOK’S. [WHAT HER FRIEND’S SAY OF HER?] SHE IS UNSELFISH, LEVEL HEADED, INTELLIGENT AND EAGER TO LEARN. SHE IS A VERY SIMPLE PERSON. “I AM NOT INTO THE FLASHY CLOTHES ON STAGE OR ANY WHERE ELSE AS A MATTER OF FACT!” GERNIKER ONCE SAID IN A TELIVISION INTERVIEW.
