Masika Kalysha is a prominent reality television star

Kalysha has appeared on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. She was a supporting cast member on seasons 1 and 4 of the show and was a main cast member during season 3.

Of all of her storylines, her most memorable one was the feud that she had with Alexis Skyy, a former girlfriend of the father of her daughter, Fetty Wap.

On moving from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood to Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta, Kalysha said in a 2018 interview, “I didn’t like the way I was being portrayed [on Love & Hip Hop]. I didn’t like the situations I was being put in. It ended up being a lot of situations that in my real life would never occur.”

She continued, “It’s not worth it. I have a little girl at home that’s going to see this. I’m not going to be jumping around like an orangutan doing this crazy stuff that you want me to do that doesn’t exist in my real life.”

Kalysha says the straw that broke the camel’s back was when VH1 allegedly didn’t include scenes with her talking about her miscarriage in the show.

Ahead of the episode’s premiere, Kalysha teased her appearance on Instagram, posting photos with the caption, “Catch me on tonight’s episode of @insecurehbo.”
