Shingai Shoniwa

So I decided to feature Shingai Shoniwa because she is the most gorgeous human specimen my eyes have ever seen lol. Seriously! this girl is bangin. In the next life, she would be my wife ( I'm sorry Beyonce but I couldn't resist). Shingai is the bassist and lead singer of the talnted London Indie band Noisettes. Born is 1980, she is a Brit of Zimbabwean descent.

Shingai is massively talented. With an edgy rock/soul-flavored voice, she hits all the right notes. Second of all, she is an amazing performer and her showmanship is evident on stage. Her onstage antics vary from skipping, crawling, climbing and pretty much everything unpredictable.

Shingai's natural hair should be one of the great wonders of the world. I must admit that growing up, I never found natural hair to be sexy or even appealing. Yes! I admit the self-hate. Like many other people of color, I had been brainwashed into believing that Western features were ideal ya da ya da ya you know the rest of the story. Suffice to say, my perceptions have clearly changed and natural hair to me right now is the best thing to ever happen in this world since fried chicken. Shingai has taken the concept of natural hair to the next level by making it bold, fun, daring and modern. With her afrocentric style, she truly embodies the concept of a confident black woman proud to be in her own skin.
