Magic is a lifestyle! ✨
Mary Neshamah Rowe is an Arkansas native sparking a worldwide movement! A classically trained vocalist, she brings her ethereal operatic sound to her unique brand of hip hop.
Enchanted in childhood by her older sister’s Sailor Moon VHS collection, she took the Japanese term “Mahou Shoujo” (“Magical Girl”) and customized it to represent Black Girl Magic in its purest form.
Her latest single “Nuffin Wrong” speaks to her personal journey with redefining her sexuality within the safety of a committed relationship, but doesn’t skimp on the florid vocals, tongue-in-cheek lyricism, and dreamy flow.
Since stepping into the public eye in 2018, Afroshoujo has appeared in several local festivals and college events earning raving reviews. Her distinct voice has adorned runway shows for alternative fashion brands such as Hard Decora and Radical Visibility Collective. She has also written and produced custom music for several businesses including Tattoo and Lifestyle Brand Little Inkplay Shop D.C.
“Afroshoujo is the bedroom pop pixie from Arkansas. Her mosaic of feel-good femme frivoli needs not to be tied to a specific genre or sound.” -Wussy Magazine
“Afroshoujo is inspiring Alt Black and queer people to live out loud!”
