"She's On Her Way To Middle School"

Congratulations to Jhene Aiko and O’Ryan’s daughter, Namiko Browner, who graduated from the sixth grade on Tuesday (June 9). Jhene took to Instagram in celebration of her daughter’s accomplishment.

“Namiko had her 6th grade CULMINATION today,” Aiko told her social media fans. “She’s on her was to middle school,” the celebrity mom added.


This graduation season has been different because of the coronavirus pandemic. The majority of schools forfeited traditional commencement ceremonies in efforts to comply with social distancing rules.

Still, celebrities have found other ways to celebrate the Class of 2020. In fact, YouTube hosted a graduation special this past weekend that featured former President and First Lady Obama along with Beyonce and other stars who both congratulated this year’s graduates and offered words of empowerment.

Jhene Aiko also encouraged this year’s scholars while celebrating her daughter’s accomplishment. “Congratulations Namiko and everyone else who is graduating,” Aiko wrote online this past Tuesday. “Never ever stop learning,” the celebrity mom advised. “Continue to evolve and grow,” Jhene said. “You are essential. Don’t you ever let anyone or anything make you think otherwise. I am inspired and so proud of all of you.”

Namiko is Jhene Aiko’s only child with O’Ryan. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
