Ani Caribbean:

The harder you work, the luckier you are – that statement sums up the career of Ani Caribbean so far. For as long as she can remember Ani has been obsessed with music and radio. Growing up listening to the legendary Big Boy’s Neighborhood, her passion came to life when she landed a job working with the show as a board operator. After mastering the technical aspects of Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Ani added social media to her responsibilities for the show.  In 2016, she was recognized for her hard work with a big break from Big Boy – her own Neighborhood segment called “Hashtag Hip Hop.”

With Big Boy at the helm, Ani joins Natalia, Ayyde’, Louis G and DJ Vick One as they entertain audiences with a high-energy mix of Hip Hop, heart and humor. 

Ani is almost as passionate about hookah as she is about music. Next time you’re at a concert, make sure to look around because she’ll probably be standing next to you singing along to every single word. In her spare time, if she’s not smoking hookah or obsessing over the latest makeup trends, you can find her at the latest hotspots trying out the best coffee or must-have dish.
