Black Girl magic and #blackgirlmagic were created to celebrate the accomplishments and general amazingness of black women. It is used as an expression of positivity and empowerment towards the black woman.
Story Story!! Story Come!!!
So its a bright day on the South East side of Nairobi city and I am walking to the office,and I just remember I had a ruracio to attend the following Saturday.Who do i run to at such a time?Lorna,she is an intelligent and the most hardworking designer I know also she is Tungatunga Fashions CEO.So I run to her,and within a jiffy,she gives me like five outfits to chose from,and all the outfits are so fly aisee,I end up confused and indecisive.So she explains how comfortable a particular outfit would be at a ruracio and as she is talking,I just think to myself….whoa!!! she is super witty,this is someone I can work with,we can team up and create something.So we sat down ,exchanged ideas and came up with the very first project which i named the kitenge and kente edition,it showcased few of her designs which I must admit are fire my peeps!!!!!!It was quite an exciting project and it got me all psyched up and that’s how the most amazing thing happening in my life right now, THEPHYFACTOR came to be.
You see there are people you meet and in a very short period of time you realize that they have impacted your life more than maybe someone or some of your relatives whom you’ve known since forever,remember those uncles who wears safari boots and brown godpapas,the way they used to ask for our CV’s but you forget to send it, then you happen to meet the dude during family gatherings and he goes like “i forwarded the CV to my friends in big places ,nangoja feedback“,ha ha yes those. Thats when you realize that you can only count on yourself to START.
I know of quite a number of you tubers and content creators who really support each others work,market each others brands and that = Black girl magic.
Michelle Obama has been living proof to women and girls of color all over the world, that they are intelligent, poised, and beautiful enough to, one day, call the White House their home too. She’s fierce, she’s fly, and she’s grounded in a strong sense of identity. The hashtag also got a lot of play following the release of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade, which is about the struggles and triumphs of black women. Lemonade prominently features a handful of powerful and extremely accomplished black women, including the record-breaking tennis player Serena Williams, and actor and activist Amandla Stenberg.
We should all day and everyday celebrate each others accomplishments and general amazingness ,express positivity and girl child empowerment.
I appreciate the Organisations and every single person all over Africa and Kenya in particular ,who gives that voiceless woman out there a voice and provides a platform for them to express themselves.I know of quite a number of Kenyan women especially on the digital world who really support each other,and that guys=black girl magic.Help a sister where you can,support her dreams,advice her,give suggestions,push her to start that business and mostly pray for her.
