SUPER… with Princess Nokia

For SUPER… we ask notable people to tell us what their superhero alter-egos would be, and our illustrators bring those characters to life.

Princess Nokia AKA New York City Aficionado AKA Holographic Pop Star AKA Wavy Spice is quite possibly one of the most relatable artists for the younger generation of music fans. The emcee has been capturing the hearts and minds of the youth with her DIY aura and free spirit to be who she is–and sometimes that means a tomboy. Her music is a mix of everything which is exactly what kids in the streaming era want.

Now Princess Nokia has another AKA–Sista Girl. In our latest SUPER… episode, the Nuyorican details her alter ego who supports science and math (hence the NASA cap), cures loneliness with music, and battles white supremacy around the world. Her superpowers of divination, levitation, pyrotekinesis, electromagnetic manipulation, and aquatic direction are really specific and are now things we want to have. Watch the full episode above to learn about her sidekick, a pig named Origami from Thailand, and her beef with Wonda Girl.

You can also learn how to make proper rose water to look young forever in our Reign(a) episode with Princess Nokia.
