Star of “Mixed-Ish” and Co-founder of Sugaberry
An accomplished actor and producer, Tika Sumpter currently stars on top-rated ABC comedy series MIXED-ISH as Alicia Johnson. Tika’s latest endeavor is Sugaberry, a lifestyle brand for moms of color she co-founded with Thai Randolph. She had the idea for Sugaberry after being frustrated with the lack of resources available for brown mamas during her own pregnancy. Tika and Thai also recently launched a new weekly podcast called, The Suga.
Tika’s recent acting credits include: Paramount Pictures’ SONIC THE HEDGEHOG and OWN’s highest-rated series, THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS, directed and produced by Tyler Perry. In 2016, Sumpter received critical praise for her “spot-on performance” (Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter) as a young Michelle Obama in Miramax’s feature film SOUTHSIDE WITH YOU, which Sumpter co-produced with John Legend.
Tika resides in Los Angeles with her fiance, Nick, and their three year old daughter, Ella-Loren.
