Nininha Problemática


Nininha Problemática is a character created in 2017 by the actor Digo Santos. Inspired by Salvador’s ghetto womanhood experience, Nininha has been spotlighted in distinct art areas, always mixing a political discourse with sense humor.

Her iconic and intense persona is due to her involvement with Bahia’s ghetto. Nininha is a multi-artist: she is a dancer, actress, singer, model and a creator.

“No Paredão”, her musical debut, was released in 2018, turning her into a household name in ‘pagodão” (a subgenre of Brazil’s “pagode”). Ever since, Nininha became the most well-known drag queen in Salvador, collaborating with major names in Bahia’s music industry.
