Who is Sonya C Miller?
Sonya C Miller was born in the USA in 1970 – she hasn’t shared the exact date of her birth, but it’s said that her zodiac sign is Gemini. She’s a rapper, film writer, producer and director, but who’s perhaps known best for being the former wife of Master P, a famous American rapper, actor and record producer.
Early life and education
Sonya was raised in the US by her African-American parents about whom nothing’s known, as she respects their privacy; some of her fans believe that her father was a mailman, and that her mother was a cleaning lady. Because she hasn’t spoken of her siblings, most people believe her to be an only child.
She became interested in rap music while still attending a local elementary school; Sonya was around 12 years old when she started spending most of her spare time with boys, mostly because they were also into rap music, and wanted to become rappers themselves. She attended a local high school, and during her four years there chose to pursue a rapping career, and started writing her own songs.
Sonya matriculated in 1988, and didn’t attend college.
Career as a rapper
For the following five years, Sonya worked various jobs to financially support herself, but also to pay for the recording of her songs. It was in 1993 that she launched her rapping career, with the release of her debut album “Married to the Mob”; three of the album’s songs attracted some attention: “Gankers”, “No Credit” and “Life Ain’t Nothing But A Game”.
Her second album “True to the Game” was released in 1997, while Sonya’s third album “Da Crime Family” came out in 1999; she released only one other album before retiring from the rap industry: “The Best of TRU” in 2005.
Writing directing and producing credits
Sonya has one writing, one directing and close to 20 producing credits.
She made her producing debut with the 2002 series “Classic Car Restoration”, and the following two years saw her produce the reality show “DIY to the Rescue”, the series “Date Plate” and the drama movie “Decisions”.
Sonya then wrote six and directed eight episodes of the reality show “Material Girls”, which aired from 2005 to 2007. It starred Kelly Keener, Cat Wei and April Eden, and follows three women who are helping people transform their homes.
A couple of Sonya’s other producing credits include the 2005 documentary series “All-Star Kitchen Makeover”, the 2006 series “Wasted Spaces” and the 2007 video “Black Supaman”.
She worked as a costume designer on the 2004 video “Decisions”, and the 2008 video “Internet Dating”, while Sonya also worked as a make-up artist on the 2010 short movie “A Mother’s Choice”.
She could’ve been seen featured in the 2005 mini-series “The Team”, and in the 2013 short TV special “Fame in the Family”.
Husband and children
Sonya and Master P both prefer to keep the details of what they had together away from the media’s attention, but some things about their former marriage are still known.
They exchanged vows in 1989, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members. Sonya gave birth to their seven children in the following two decades; they have kept six of their children away from the media’s attention, while their son Romeo Miller has launched his career as a rapper, wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps.
In 2014, Sonya filed for divorce and asked for 40 percent of all of Master P’s assets, but it doesn’t seem that she has got what she had asked for.
As of December 2021, she seems to be single, was once married to Master P, and has seven children with him.
Hobbies and other interests
Sonya is quite active on Instagram, and seems to be enjoying the attention which she’s receiving from her close to 10,000 followers; she’s uploaded nearly 50 pictures onto the network, most of which have been taken during her everyday life.
She’s keeping her Instagram account private, which means that one has to become her follower if he/she wants to see her pictures.
She was physically quite active during her 20s and 30s, as she worked out at the gym nearly every day, while Sonya’s today mostly focused on practicing yoga at home.
She’s a lover of animals, and has a pet cat and a pet dog.
Late at night, she enjoys watching movies starring her favorite actor and actress, Leonardo DiCaprio and Scarlett Johansson, such as “Django Unchained”, “One Upon a Time in… Hollywood” and “Lost in Translation”.
Age, height and net worth
Sonya’s age is 51. She has short brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) and she weighs around 120lbs (55kgs).
As of December 2021, her net worth has been conservatively estimated at over $1 million, while Master P’s net worth has been estimated at over $200 million.
Who is Master P?
Percy Robert Miller, known better by his stage name Master P, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, on 29 April 1967 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He’s today perhaps known best for being the founder of No Limit Records, a record label which has since been renamed to New No Limit Records.
Master P was raised in New Orleans alongside his four younger siblings, a sister and three brothers; his two brothers Vyshonne ‘Silkk the Shocker’ Miller and Corey ‘C-Murder’ have both become successful rappers, while the fourth brother Kevin was murdered in 1990.
Master P studied at Booker T. Washington High School, and eventually transferred to Warren Easton High School; he was an avid basketball player, and thus upon matriculating in 1985, enrolled at the University Houston on a basketball scholarship. He spent only a couple of months there as he then moved to Merritt College, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1999.
Master P launched his career as a rapper on 12 February 1991, with the release of his debut album “Get Away Clean”, and the following year saw the release of his new album “Mama’s Bad Boy”; he released three other albums in the following three years, including “True” with his hip hop group TRU in 1995.
His 10th album “Game Face” was released on 18 December 2001, while his following album “Good Side, Bad Side” came out on 23 March 2004, and topped the Billboard Independent Albums Chart. His most recent (15th) studio album – “Louisiana Hot Sauce” – was released in 2016.
Master P was also a professional basketball player, who competed with the Fort Wayne Fury in the Continental Basketball Association (CBA) in 1998 and 1999, and with both Long Beach Jam and Las Vegas Rattlers in the American Basketball Association (ABA) in 2004.
He’s also an actor, film producer and director, who has appeared in close to 70 movies and TV series, and is probably still known best for his portrayal of Julius Armas in the 2003 crime movie “Hollywood Homicide”, while he’s also known for his performance in the 1998 movie “I Got the Hook Up”.
