From opening for Taylor Swift's Red Tour in Jakarta after winning a contest at age 15, and dropping acoustic covers and originals on a YouTube channel in her early years, Zefanya soon found herself taking on the global stage as one of 88rising's biggest rising stars.

In September of 2020, NIKI released her debut album "Moonchild", her highly acclaimed genre-bending record featuring her singles "Switchblade" and "Hallway Weather".
"In terms of genre or sound, I wouldn't even know how to describe this album. It doesn't really fit into any box and I'm completely ok with that." she told Hypebae. "I personally love projects like that – ones that push boundaries and don't adhere to any convention."
Her song "Every Summertime" featured in the Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' soundtrack.
Dropping her newest single "Before" where she shared that the track is "the irresolute ending to my very first love story. I wrote it as a means to create the kind of closure I never had,", NIKI also announced her upcoming sophomore album "Nicole" coming out this August.
"I also feel it’s ironically poetic to open this new chapter by telling you how it ends first. I’m so proud of it, and I can’t think of a better song to introduce the ultimate break-up record I’ve always fantasized of putting out but somehow haven’t… until now." NIKI said in a statement.
