Amber Najm was born ‘Amber Michelle Wyatt’ on April 13, 1981. She is the daughter of Tony Wyatt and Gina Shirley Pineiro. Amber has a brother named Justin Wyatt, and a sister named Andrea Ablordeppeya. They were all raised in a military family, and it was a happy family full of love and joy. She is also the wife of the famous RnB singer, T-Pain.
When growing up, she was very fond of her father, who used to work in the United States Air Force. The father and daughter bond between them was very strong. It was stronger because she missed him when he traveled out for work. Presently, her parents are no longer together as her father, Tony Wyatt, is now married to a lady called Ann Wyatt.
Amber Najm was raised in Melbourne, Tallahassee, Florida. She is known to share her opinions about the place she grew up, saying it is a very wild place and she used to be always careful with who she spends her time with.
Amber Najm’s Education
She was a very bright student of Satellite High School, where she graduated in 1999. Amber’s peculiar interest in expanding her knowledge got her the opportunity to enroll in college.
After giving it some thought, she decided to go to Florida A&M University. As always, Amber Najm excelled in school without so much as a flaw. She graduated with a Bachelors Degree in business.
It hurts Amber a lot to learn that people assume the reason for her fame is solely tied to being married to T-Pain. But they get shocked when they know about her education and career.
As a teenager, she started training hard to follow the footsteps of her father in joining the United States Air Force. Amber Najm was so committed to her goal that she put everything aside and completely focused on her goal.
At the age of 20, Amber Najm successfully passed the basic training for the United States Air Force. Her parents were a bit skeptical when she first got in but eventually approved her actions.
She joined the military in 2001 and finished in 2005, and has always planned on starting up her business afterward. But that was not meant to be, for she met with her future husband and became a full-time wife and mother.
Now Amber is very much involved in her husband’s record label, Nappy Boy Entertainment. Asides from being a loving mother and housewife, she also promotes the label’s activities and ventures.
To this day, the Wyatt family still honors members of the family who were in the military. They always celebrate Veterans Day with every member of the family who is a veteran, not just Amber Najm and her father, Tony. A picture was once posted on Instagram showing eight members of the Wyatt family who are veterans.
Is Amber Najm inclined to Singing?
Even though T-Pain is a good singer and a talented one at that, his wife, Amber Najm, is clearly not one and has not shown any interest in singing whatsoever. However, she is very dedicated to supporting her husband’s career.
Amber Najm and T-Pain
The two met in 2002 and dated for a while, then got married on September 11, 2003. Amber was 22 years old at the time, while T-Pain was just 18. Their age difference and the fact that she was older than him caused a lot of speculation and controversy from the media.
The hot couple didn’t pay any attention to the tabloids. According to Amber, it was love at first sight and she was especially thrilled when he asked her out.
It is imperative to note that she met and got married to T-Pain years before he became famous. So thoughts of her being a gold-digger should not come up, as the 39-year-old is living a happy life with her husband.
The ultimate shocker came in 2014 when T-Pain revealed that he and the wifey were in an open relationship. In an interview with TMZ, he confirmed that they were once welcomed a stripper into their bedroom to have fun. And the fun thing happens quite often.
He said, “I was just telling them that I and my wife just sleep with other girls together. It’s not like we can just go off and have relationships with other people. People were assuming we got married for nothing. Just because we smash an every now and then doesn’t mean we have an open marriage.”
T-Pain also stated the one time a stripper from Costa Rica fell in love with him, and Amber had to warn the girl not to steal her man. She told the stripper it was only a business arrangement, and nothing more.
Amber has not yet come forth to comment on this. People now refer to them as ‘swingers’.
Amber Najm on Instagram
Amber is pretty much on Instagram and a very active user at that. She is known for sharing a lot of pictures of herself with T-Pain, and some of the record label promotions. She refers to herself as ‘First Lady @ Nappy Boy Entertainment’ and can be found with the username panpan2211.
Amber Najm once shared an Instagram post showing a video of the day she and T-Pain met in 2002.
The couple is one to share their love life on social media, but not like most celebrities. Amber posts pictures of T-Pain to celebrate his birthday, their outings together and other milestones they have achieved so far.
He was born Faheem Rasheed Najm, on September 30, 1985, in Tallahassee Florida into the family of Aliyah Najm and Shasheem Najm. T-Pain grew up in a strict Muslim household, but he has never been a religious person from a young age.
He has three siblings, two older ones named Hakim and Zakiyyah, and a younger one named A’pril.
Right from childhood, the husband of Amber Najm has always had a keen interest in music. Unfortunately, he grew up in a family with a below-average income, so his parents couldn’t afford to get him quality music education or instruments.
T-Pain’s father once brought home a keyboard he found on the street and gifted it to his music-loving son.
At three years old, he always goes to a family friend’s music studio to hang out and learn. When he turned 10, T-Pain converted his bedroom into a music studio, with different sorts of equipment.
Faheem got married to his long time girlfriend, Amber Najm, in 2003. This was before he became a sensational hip-hop artist. The family is blessed with three children, Lyriq, Muziq, and Kaydnz.
He cut off his trademark dreadlocks in April 2013. A decision that got him a lot of backlash from his fans and didn’t sit well with his wife, Amber Najm. He responded by pointing out that everybody must learn to adapt to their environment.
The father of three was also apprehended by the Leon County police, in Tallahassee, in June 2007. He was arrested for driving with a suspended license but was released 3 hours later.
Amber’s husband’s name, ‘T-Pain,’ stands for ‘Tallahassee Pain.’ Tallahassee representing the town he grew up in, and Pain for his incredibly challenging childhood.
T-Pain became part of the group ‘Nappy Headz’ in 2004, this collaboration gave him some popularity. He then recorded a cover for Akon’s hit song, ‘Locked Up.’ This impressed Akon a lot that he quickly signed up T-Pain to his record label, ‘Konvict Muzik.’
The song made him popular, and soon several lucrative deals kept on coming. Akon became his mentor and promised him a bright future ahead.
He launched his debut album in December 2005 titled ‘Rappa Ternt Sanga.’ It made the 33rd spot on the ‘Billboard 200’ chart and sold 500 thousand copies and was certified “gold” by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America’ (RIAA).
The husband of Amber Najm collaborated with another label and dropped his second album which dropped in 2007. This album sold more than 171 thousand units in its first week and peaked on the ‘Billboard 200’ chart. Popular songs like ‘Buy U a Drank’ and ‘Bartender,’ came from the album, and also topped several other charts.
He has collaborated with several celebrities like Kanye West, R Kelly, DJ Khaled, and Chris Brown.
T-Pain got his big break in 2008 when Kanye West featured him on a song titled “Good Life”, it broke the internet and became a hit. The song also earned him a Grammy win and is also the reason for his popularity in the hip-hop world.
He established his record label in 2006, titled ‘Nappy Boy Entertainment.’ The popular singer collaborated with people like Rocco Valdes, Akon, and Lil Wayne to release his third album titled ‘Thr33 Ringz,’ in November 2008.
T-Pain has also appeared in films such as ‘Lottery Ticket,’ ‘Good Hair,’ and ‘Visual Reality.’
Amber Najm on Twitch
Amber Najm is a Twitch player but not like her husband, T-Pain, who is especially known for his huge love for the Animal Crossing game. He has proven to the world time and time again to be the perfect Animal Crossing husband.
The rapper and R&B singer bragged on Twitter about the generous stimulus package that he left for the wife.

— T-Pain (@TPAIN) May 1, 2020
He asked fans to come bearing gifts or stay away. And of course, Amber was blessed with a stockpile so huge that it made every other desert island gateway package look like a beginner.
To top everything, T-Pain made sure the moose villager on Amber’s island would hesitate before asking his wife to “take a nap” together. His Twitch channel and Twitter feed are full of content relating to Animal Crossing.

Unfortunately, her current net worth is not known, as T-Pain’s wife hasn’t revealed that part of the information to the media. We only know that Amber Najm has worked for the United States Air Force. Her job position is not known in order to estimate her salary.
She currently works for her husband’s record label, and T-Pain’s estimated net worth should be between $35 million and $45 million. Speculations have it that Amber Najm has an estimated net worth of $1 million to her name.
The Masked Singer
In 2019, Amber’s husband was in a Fox Reality TV Competition titled “The Masked Singer”, where celebrities sang in a contest wearing huge masks to disguise their identity. T-Pain emerged winner of the competition by beating Gladys Knight and Donny Osmond.
The judge panelists and the whole audience were completely stunned to learn it was him who was singing behind the mask.
Over the years, people have known the husband of Amber Najm by his Auto-Tune trademark. And they also never imagine he had the talent to sing without it. So him singing and winning the show without the Auto-Tune effect came as a shock to many.
“The soul that you put down on this show, man, I am just amazed,” Robin Thicke, one of the “Masked Singer” judges, said to him on the finale.
Amber Najm posted so many photos of this moment on social media. She was especially proud that her hubby wasn’t just a talented rapper, but a talented singer as well.
Lyriq Najm, the Daughter of Amber Najm and T-Pain
Lyriq Najm is the only daughter among the three children of Amber and Faheem. Her other brothers are Muziq Najm and Kaydnz Najm.
The three kids all have names referenced to music. Lyriq’s name refers to ‘Lyric’, Musiq refers to ‘Music’, and Kaydnz Kodah refers to ‘Cadence’ and ‘Coda.’
Much details about Lyric Najm and her brothers aren’t really available on the internet so to speak.
Amber Najm and T-Pain Still Together
The couple is still going strong in their relationship. It is safe to say Amber Najm is part of the reason T-Pain is successful in his career. She supports him and makes the best out of him.
In 2009, T-Pain was involved in a golf accident which resulted in him losing some teeth and sustaining some injuries. Amber was completely distraught by this, but she stood by him and nursed him till he was better and back on his feet.
Like her husband, she also had dreadlocks at some point, which she dyed blonde. But these days, she is mostly seen with brown curls.
The RnB singer’s family went through a bitter ordeal back in 2016 when his niece, Janover Glover, was killed. The young girl was stabbed to death in a local store in Tallahassee, Florida, the city where he grew up. Amber Najm was right by her husband’s side to help him process his loss.
