Niki Chow (周麗淇) is a Hong Kong actress and Cantopop singer. She terminated her contract with management company BMA and label BMA Records in January 2011 and currently has an artist contract with TVB. She was born and raised in Hong Kong. She is the younger sister of the Hong Kong model Kathy Chow Man Kei.

Niki's school life ended when she was spotted by an agent who offered her a modeling opportunity. This was the beginning of her life as an artist. She was just about 17 years old at that time.

Several years later, she began her acting career in movies and television series, working mostly with TVB. Cast by Amy Wong, her first TVB series was Hard Fate (翡翠戀曲). She is well known for her role and performance in Producer Lau Ka Ho's 2005 series The Gentle Crackdown (秀才遇著兵), which stars Moses Chan and her. She won the Most Improved Actress award at the TVB Anniversary Awards (2005) for her performance in The Gentle Crackdown. Amy Wong's Under the Canopy of Love (天幕下的戀人), starring Kevin Cheng, Bosco Wong and her, in the February of the following year also helped establish her popularity. An indirect sequel with the same cast and crew, The Seventh Day (最美麗的第七天), came out February 2008. Her on-screen partnership with Kevin Cheng was well-received by the audience in the years 2004-2008, along with rumours of the two dating in real life (until 2008). Niki's most recent series The King of Snooker (桌球天王) of 2009, with Adam Cheng and Patrick Tang, did not do well, resulting in low ratings and negative reviews.

Niki signed with BMA Records in 2005 and released her debut EP Pure Niki in the August of that year. In 2006, she released Child-Woman and a single Nikikaka. In January 2009, she released Redefine. In August 2010, she released a charity single Make a Wish with proceeds donated to an organization called Make-A-Wish Hong Kong. As well, in November 2010, she released her last EP under BMA Records: F.L.Y. (which stands for Freedom, Love, and Youth).

She filmed Sakura Memories (櫻紅醉了) – a TVB travel documentary programme about Japan – in the spring of 2009 and it aired on TVB in August 2009.

She is also the author of several books, including Girlfriend Diary《周麗淇·女朋友手記》(2005), a book of the same title as her 2006 album The Child Woman 《The Child Woman》(2006), Detailed Little Things 《細味心事》(2007), Happiness 《幸福》(2009), and Cherish 《珍惜》(2010). Her books are published under BMA Publications.

Up untiI January 2011, Niki has been managed by BMA and released her music under BMA Records. She terminated her contract with the company in January 2011.

Niki currently has a two-year artist contract with TVB, which begins February 1, 2011.
