Happy Black Girls


This song is an ode to all black women with NATURAL HAIR. According to Osyrus Bolly!!! The song was produced by  YUNI WA and the video is directed by Rah hoWard… Bolly proudly dedicated this video and song to “all black women across the globe, we want U to know U are appreciated”. Osyrus Bolly also gave a shout out to the founders of a website called HAPPY BLACK GIRL  who inspired this video and song. 

Below is a picture of the principles of the happy girl movement. According to her biography, Devoya Mayo enjoys lower case letters, impromptu naps, blustery afternoon writing sessions, a proper cocktail, rainy day playlists and Sundays. By day she’s a mild mannered receptionist, by night she’s Ms Soulflower (the self proclaimed Queen Bee & Event Coordinator for The Soulflower Group).  Devoya is also a poet, former radio personality, playwright, dj, community organizer, crafter and proof that you can add as many commas after your name as you deem necessary. So long as you put in the work.  As well, Starr Lopez somehow seems to meet all her closest friends by way of the arts and solid music. Although raised in the Bay Area, she connected with HBG soulmate, Devoya, while living in the Central Valley. Starr now resides on the coast in Southern California, where she and her husband are surrounded by piles of music magazines and artistic works (painted, penned, and smeared) by family and dear friends. She said one can always find limes, and jars of local honey in her kitchen. The sweet and the sour. Starr obtained her B.A. in Black Studies and Spanish Minor from Pomona College. She has been event organizing in contemporary art museums for the past 5 years, where creative spaces are home.
