Clink Your Glasses to OKENYO’s New Video For ‘WOMAN’s WORLD'
The Sydney R&B performer suits up and struts out in her confident new video.
"I'm a very busy woman with a lot on my plate", spits Sydney based singer-songwriter OKENYO in her new video for "WOMAN'S WORLD" (All caps, thanks). Dressed in a striking white power suit and backed by an entourage of dancers, the singer calls to mind artists like Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae, as she presents a call to arms with lines like "You can call me Feminazi, go ahead and call me nasty."
There is a self-awareness and empowerment in the lyrics and a defiant resolve in the message as she identifies misrepresentation in gender and sexual stereotypes. Yeah, she's wearing a suit. But she's also going to dance all over the stage, dance floor and any platform she's given.
