Reign(a): Head Wrapping with OSHUN

reign(a): [REY?-nah] n: a bomb femme who takes no shit.

reign(a) is an interview series featuring strong females who challenge cookie-cutter definitions of “feminism.” Through various social media outlets, an unprecedented number of artists are leveraging their online personas to dismantle archaic ideals of womanhood. We will talk to and learn from fly women who inspire others not because it’s cool, but because conformity is boring.


In this episode, iya-soul duo OSHUN teaches you how to rock a head wrap. Marching to the beat of their own drum, D.C.-natives Niambi Sala and Thandiwe befriended one another at the Martin Luther King scholarship orientation at NYU. With a mutual desire to spread love, preach the beauty of Blackness, and shed light on the importance of ancestry, OSHUN was born. Influenced by hip hop, R&B, and neo-soul, their latest EP, ASASE YAA, pays homage to the Yoruban ancestors of the past, recognizes the present, and ganders at an Afrocentric future.

Check out our last episode, where Brooklyn rapper DonMonique taught us how to roll a blunt.
