Maimouna Youssef and Brian “B.Kyle” Atkins team up again to create a powerful visual for “We’re Already Royal” – one of the leading songs from Maimouna’s mixtape – The Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh. I bought this mixtape and it’s amazing! Her music is very refreshing. You wont be disappointed. This video project shows how the modern day African American community still holds the same indicative set of core values, morals, and ethics instilled throughout history and evident in ancestral memory. Let it be known that at the core, we are Kings and Queens, despite the assumptions or misconceptions others may have of us as a people. I found this to be a very inspiring video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
African Dance is an art form that has long represented many things to it’s people, specifically as an expression of emotion and creativity that allows Africans and members of the Afrikan Diaspora to honor and celebrate the brothers and sisters among us and our ancestors. With this video we wanted to focus on showcasing the beauty of dance and our heritage in it’s simplest form.
