Aida Osman might be a new name to many for she always worked behind the screen. But this beauty took her talents on-screen in 2022. Appearing as “Shawna Clark” on HBO Max’s Rap Sh!t, this comedic writer took the world by surprise.
Aida Osman On HBO Max’s Rap Sh!t
HBO Max’s Rap Sh!t premiered on July 21, 2022, and within a week it hit 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. So, the cast must be doing something right! Well, we don’t know about others, but Aida claimed she was “the only person that could ever do Shawna and this was supposed to be this way.”
Recalling the casting process, Aida mentioned she was “really lucky” to find the show with “perfect synthesis.” However, it indeed was scary at first. She had to spend the first two or three episodes of filming like “Are y’all sure? Like we could start over? Recast me and it’d be cool. Like nobody would know, I haven’t even told people I’ve been cast in this like, are you sure?” she explained.
But over time, she got the hang of it and fell in love with the character. Furthermore, she even helped develop the character with a group of amazing writers and kept giving Shawna her personal stories about her real life — from trying to become a rapper in LA.
By the end, she felt that she was the only person that could ever do Shawna!
Aida explained her character to be a music enthusiast who went to Spelman. Also, the actress revealed her character was dating a great guy who was going to be a lawyer. “She’s just seeing the music industry kind of formulaically. She’s doing calculus instead of just living and making art,” the star added.
Aida Osman Net Worth
Aida Osman garnered a net worth of under $500 thousand by 2022.
This emerging actress first started her career as a comic writer working on the podcast series Keep It in 2017, and the TV mini-series Group Therapy. But it wasn’t until 2021 after she wrote for Netflix’s Big Mouth and HBO’s Betty that Aida marked her presence in the industry.
Fun Fact: Aida was discovered by Netflix for Big Mouth after she dropped a nonchalant rap about pegging that went viral.
Is Aida Osman Dating Anyone?
Aida Osman might have revealed that her character was dating “a great guy who was going to be a lawyer,” but she didn’t say who her real-life partner was.
The only thing we know about her dating life (in 2022) was that she had a “small dating pool” and she missed “getting skewered, missed existing for free in someone’s mind, and missed (her) name being scribbled in his therapist’s notes.”
But with that being said, we also do know that this beauty, who is nonbinary (using she/they pronouns), likes tall men. Infact, she likes tall boys so much that she hates being a stereotype. “I hate loving tall men. I hate being a stereotype I wish I loved short kings. maybe I’ll just force it and pretend I can feel their d*ck inside me,” she joked.

What Happened To Aida Osman Brother?
Aida lost her 11-months-younger autistic brother Sam in March 2017.
Two years prior to his death, Sam started having seizures, and it was one of these dreadful episodes that took him away. “A seizure is going to come and you can’t do anything to stop it. This time it so happened in the water and it only took a short while to cause deadly brain damage. See his body couldn’t stop the water the way mine or yours would when you start to drown. Not when he was seizing,” she explained.
After Sam died of drowning, the Osman family was charged with wrongful death litigation. Due to this, Aida had the worst time of her life and took time off school and ended up falling behind.
Thankfully, they dropped the charges in March 2020.
