This year, Skyh can be seen starring as the leading man on BET+’s “All the Queen’s Men,” created by Tyler Perry Studios. The show follows Madam (Eva Marcille), a fierce businesswoman and self-proclaimed boss at the top of her game in the nightclub industry and surrounded by a band of trusted employees who work to ensure her success, who soon discovers that more money and more power means more problems. Skyh stars as Amp, Madam’s nephew with a hidden past who has found difficulty getting hired after being released from prison and goes to work as a bouncer in Madam’s club, Eden, and is reluctantly lured into the world of exotic dancing. “All the Queen’s Men” is currently available to stream on BET+.
Additional television credits for Skyh include most recently starring as the fan-favorite Jacobi on the hit Tyler Perry-produced BET series, “Sistas,” as well as starring opposite Don Cheadle and Regina Hall in Showtime’s critically acclaimed drama series “Black Monday.” He will next star in AMC’s new legal drama, “Lace,” as attorney Othello Charles (premiere date TBA).
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Skyh has always held a strong passion for the arts and is also professionally trained in tap and ballet, having attended the New World School of Arts in Miami and New York’s School of American Ballet, Miami City Ballet, American Ballet Theater, and Atlanta Ballet before dancing back-up on tour with music legends like, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, and Rihanna. After completing a handful of major tours, Skyh booked the lead role in Michael Jackson’s music video for “A Place with No Name,” which cemented his passion for acting and prompted him to hit pause on dancing professionally altogether, instead taking on a side job parking valet in Hollywood to afford acting classes and rent while honing this new passion and craft. After many classes, a few small roles, and multiple auditions for Tyler Perry, Skyh booked the role of Jacobi on BET’s “Sistas,” earning praise for his performance by critics, fans, and even Perry himself, before booking even more back-to-back roles.
When he isn’t acting in front of the camera, Skyh loves to rejuvenate and spend time in nature, work out and train intensely in the gym, focus on his faith, and advocate for the homeless and impoverished, as he himself has had to battle homelessness at various points throughout his lifetime. Skyh also has a strong passion for nourishing and cultivating the dreams of minority children, and showing them that they can follow their dreams, no matter where they come from or what they look like. He is also eager to work behind the camera as a budding producer, and is currently working on developing of few of his own projects.
