Naturalista, Singer/Songwriter & blogger Inna Modja has released an anthem for our tresses 'Kinks In My Hair' from her album Love Revolution I caught up with the Mali born Paris based artist....
What prompted you to write this track?
"Kinks in my hair" is one of the first tracks I wrote for my second album .For me the first step to happiness is to love and embrace truly who you are. I don't care about standards. When I was in primary and high school , people used to call me names cos' I had a singular look. skinny, Big hair, Hippie etc but I didn't care because my Mama told me to embrace myself truly and be proud.
What designers are you wearing in the video?
I was very excited about creating the looks for this video . I knew exactly what kind of look & Make-up I wanted.I was assisted by a very cool stylist and my Make-up artist Angloma .The designers vary from well known designers such as Chanel and Versace and some lesser known African designers like Elie Kuame and Mariah Bocoum
