In addition to the authentic and popular Afro dance moves hailing from countries like Nigeria, Senegal, and Ghana, Nora also made sure to achieve the right look by donning ash blonde / light brown curly hair for one of the looks of the la song. Her mermaid look also caught the eye.Revealing the inspiration for the look, Nora Fatehi shares: “Growing up, I was surrounded by beautiful African women, be they family members, my friends, my mother, who were lucky enough to have beautiful afro curly hair. I have always been impressed with the variety of beauty we have in Africa, from different skin tones to different hair textures. And I’ve always wanted to celebrate that as an artist. For years, I have seen international artists beautifully portray African hairstyles, fashion and dance in various content across the world. The African in me has always wanted to celebrate Afro beauty and Afro dance on a large scale through my art! With Dance Meri Rani I knew this was my chance to do it! Speaking about those eye-catching looks in the song, Nora Fatehi says, “My looks in the song are a blend of African elements from the peace of the diamonte head that gives an Egyptian touch, to the dance moves that stay true to the dance styles. afro who come from different parts of Africa and are very popular among dancers all over the world, with beautiful curly hair it was both a new look for my audience and a form of performance and celebration! sister both have beautiful curly hair, in fact my growing mom was famous for her honey brown curly afro which prompted me to create the look for Dance Meri Rani. As an artist, I always look forward to presenting something new and interesting to my audience, so when I saw an opportunity to offer an intercultural fusion, celebrating the ethnicities of the two regions and representing the different beauty standards, I made sure I took it. I am truly proud to celebrate African beauty in all its forms, with just one look.
