"I'm So Proud Of You"

Bow Wow and Joie Chavis’ daughter, Shai Moss, made her acting debut on Nickelodeon’s Side Hustle. The youngster’s parents took to Instagram this past weekend to celebrate their daughter’s accomplishments.


“I’m so proud of you,” Bow Wow wrote online. “I love you so much,” the rapper shared with his daughter. “And you are doing this all on your own because you want to! Let’s go baby girl.” Joie simply wrote, “My Baby” in response to her daughter’s milestone.

Side Hustle follows best friends Lex and Presley. Lex is the intellectual who partners with the tenacious Presley who, together, devise a plan to make money to replace their neighbor’s boat. Munchy, the quirky friend next door, is in hot water over the destruction of his father’s watercraft. How will he work with Lex and Presley to rectify the situation?

It is no surprise that Shai Moss is trying a hand in acting. The youngster, after all, is a TikTok sensation with dozens of her fans constantly giving credit to her dancing abilities. Shai even helped her mom put together a YouTube video for Joie’s Joie In Life channel. The subject was cooking but fans were in absolute love with Shai’s vibrant personality.

“You’re going to do big things,” one social media follower told Shai after seeing her Instagram post about Side Hustle. “You did great in that episode,” another fan told Shai.

Bow Wow commented on his daughter’s aspirations to act during an interview with The Grio last year. “Shai is definitely an actress,” the rapper declared. “Raven-Symone is my homegirl and I told her the other day, ‘This is you all over again.’ History repeats itself,” Bow Wow explained.

“What makes it dope is I didn’t force her,” the celebrity father added. “I’m not one of those parents saying ‘You’re going to do this,'” Bow Wow continued. “She just wants to do it,” the celebrity doted. “At school, she does her plays, she memorizes her lines, she studies, she’s already on it. On TikTok, on Instagram, she gets more views than I do.”

Shai Moss is Joie Chavis and Bow Wow’s only child together. Bow Wow has two kids in all.
