CareFree Black Girl Song of the Week | Kemekem (I Like Your Afro) by Meklit

I spent my evening lost in Tumblr. Scrolling for hours and I came across this gem on Dynamic Africa. Of course I couldn’t understand the language, but after I read about it I learned that it was a natural hair appreciation song by Ethiopian singer Meklit Hadero. The video is very flirtatious as we see a man who is drawn to a woman’s afro. How many of you carefree black girls have experienced this?

Based in San Francisco, Ethiopian singer and songwriter Meklit Hadero is known for her jazzy folk songs with East African influence. What carefree black girl doesn’t love a good cultural song? Rock on sista, rock on…
