Popular choreographer, Amanyea, has stepped into the entertainment industry with more attitude than before. For her latest project, Top Girl, produced by fellow artiste Runkus, Amanyea pays homage to iconic artistes such as Erykah Badu and Missy Elliot. The video features Stevy Who on wardrobe, Ash Beauty Studios and Nyoka Gregory on make-up and Melleisa Dawkins on hair. It showcases the talents of DJ Shacia Payne, dancer Toni ‘Happy Feet’ O’Meally and singer Courtni Jackson. Under the direction of Rogen ‘Ruption’ Walker of RD Studios and Machu Ezra, the women demonstrated what it means to enjoy life to the fullest and exuded confidence and independence. The audio and visuals for Top Girl premièred last Friday night. Something Extra takes you behind the scenes.
