At Black Girl Magic headquarters, senior editors Cori Murray (@corimurray), Charli Penn (@ManWifeDog) and Yolanda Sangweni (@YoliZama) host ESSENCE’s podcast Yes, Girl! Every episode features interviews with celebrities, politicos, and influencers—plus unfiltered “Tea for the Week” discussions on pop culture, love and relationships, race, news and business. Basically, uplifting everybody who’s taking Black culture a little higher.
Hey fam! Charli and Cori are back from Essence Fest and their recap is one for the books. There, they bumped into this week's guest, Rotimi, and his Power costars. Rotimi’s (@rotimi) quickly become a worldwide heartthrob but he's naturally multi-talented and FOCUSED out here. On this episode, we chat with Mr. Nigerian Butterscotch about his unique start as an actor and the seasoned actors who have mentored him, and how he's contributing to Afrobeats mass takeover. Plus, the qualities he’s looking for in a “Mrs. Nigerian Butterscotch!” (Heads up, ladies: having a little “riddim” is a great thing!) Follow the Yes, Girl!
