In 2018, there was a new wave of African women taking over the covers of top global magazines and opening up the entertainment industry to more diversity. While the trend continues in 2019, the younger generation has taken a cue and is now serving as the next generation of “black girl magic”.
On March 20, 2019, Hollywood’s youngest executive producer, Marsai Martins, and Britain’s fast-rising actress, Nico Parker, broke the internet as they were outdoored as the latest cover stars for Teen Vogue Magazine’s March to April edition.
Both 14, the two are described as young, wise and unapologetic girls on fire as they rock very natural looks and hair all dressed in Louis Vuitton. The girls talk to Teen Vogue about their experiences in the entertainment industry, how they deal with fame and the issue of being young and black in the industry.
