After missing the first show where she was scheduled to take on She Nay Nay Danyah will make her debut for NCW Femmes Fatales in a Fatal 4 Way also involving the debuting PJ Tyler, She Nay Nay and Addy Starr. Once again Danyah couldn't make it to NCW Femmes Fatales so the Fatal 4 Way got cancelled. She is now booked for the Third Show.
