Jhené Aiko Celebrates Daughter Namiko Graduating 6th Grade: “You Are Essential!”

As the world continues to fight the power, Jhené Aiko took a brief break from protesting injustice to celebrate her daughter’s recent accomplishments. Jhené went to Instagram to share photos of 11-year-old Namiko Browner, a child that the singer shares with O’Ryan Browner, brother to Omarion. “My baby graduated from the 6th grade today 😭 Congratulations Nami Love ❤️,” Jhené Aiko penned in the caption to a baby photo of Namiko.

We’ve watched as thousands of schools have curbed their graduation ceremonies for students due to COVID-19. The pandemic’s at-home orders may be lifted soon, but the Class of 2020 still missed out on celebrating their big days with alongside their friends in-person. It looks as if Namiko still had a wonderful day with her family, and we’re sure that once it’s safer, the pre-teen will celebrate in style.
