Amina joins the cast of Love & Hip Hop: New York in season four, as the secret wife of rapper Peter Gunz. Their marriage is revealed dramatically early into the season, leading to a violent showdown between Amina and Tara, his girlfriend of 11 years, and the mother of his children. At the fourth season reunion, she reveals that she is pregnant with Peter's child. On July 29, 2014, Amina gave birth to a daughter, Cori Pankey. In season five, Peter continues to go back and forth with Tara, and after falling pregnant in season six, Amina decides to have an abortion. At the sixth season reunion, while Tara is pregnant with Peter's baby, she reveals that she too is pregnant by Peter.

Amina loved music since she was young. She listened to a vast genre of music, including jazz, hip-hop, RnB, and more. Her role model was Mariah Carey, so Amina would study Mariah’s vocals and then practice. She got her interest in music from her mother, who loved singing, and her father, who played Jazz. She first started singing in choirs and performing musicals, and by the time she was 13, Amina had started writing songs. Her favorite instrument is the piano, which she began playing at 24. Her love for playing the piano made her get a tattoo of it. She then launched her solo career after she joined “Love and Hip Hop: New York.” Over the years, she has released a lot of albums, written over 400 songs, and released more than a hundred songs. She must appreciate being a reality star since the platform for “Love and Hip Hop: New York” gave her a wider audience for her music. (Source: tvovermind.com)
