2018 saw the premiere of Love and Hip-Hop Miami and everyone is still going on about the Afrolicious queen, Amara La Negra. Her beauty, her body and that haurrrrr gurrrl!
Speaking of the hair, Amara was mocked by one of her cast mate on LHHM, Young Hollywood, because of her big luscious Afro hair. In order to break the American music market, he asked her to be ‘more Beyonce and less Macy Gray.’ He explained that the sleek look is more appealing and suitable than the big afro…whaaat?
Anywhooo, we can’t blame him. He’s only following in the footsteps of a society where anything black, from hair to skin tone, has ignorantly pushed to the back…always. They see the black skin as unappealing and the Afro hair as untamed. We’re not here for it. Yenihsworld promotes the beauty of the black skin and the afroliciousness of the our hair texture, short, big and untamed.
Afro hair/Big hair/Lion mane has always been sexy. It symbolises strength, confidence, freedom and most especially beauty. Today on our platform, we’re celebrating Amara and many of our sisters in media/entertainment who are influencing the world while rocking their afros with so much sassiness and class.
