Nicola Teresa DeMartino
May 5, 1995
Niki DeMartino was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Her father is Jeffrey DeMartino and her mother is Nelida Garcia DeMartino — her parents are dentists. As a child, DeMartino wanted to become a singer, so she learned to play the violin and piano and teamed up with her sister to sing at talent shows. Her career as a YouTuber started in 2011, long before YouTube content creation became a popular activity for people, and she and her sister were mocked. The channel she shares with her sister, “Niki and Gabi,” was created in 2012, and while she moved on to develop her independent channel, it has not been as successful as the jointly-owned one. The slow growth of her separate channel has made her unhappy, and has affected her self-esteem. She has battled mental health problems, but she keeps forging ahead relentlessly.
On a personal note, DeMartino is bisexual. She was accepted by her parents and family but being bisexual and a pioneer YouTuber in a conservative Pennsylvanian society was difficult. This situation was made even more difficult by her personality as a people-pleaser.
DeMartino has become a popular name not only in the YouTube fashion sphere but in music too. Her hipster style, humor, and voice differentiate her from her twin, Gabi, and she has made millions of fans fall in love with her. She teamed up with her sister to release their first single, ‘We Are Not Over,’ in 2014, and they went on to release many amazing songs. But DeMartino always craved her independence so that she could do things her way. So she branched out and released her first solo single, ‘Hold On,’ in 2016. She dropped her first album, “Nights alone,” in 2021.
