BlackHairOMG Q & A With Myisha “It Aint Over” Thomas
Q: Black Hair OMG –
Myisha, your viral video was one of the first things we posted in our OMG Black Hair Conversation group
the morning after you posted it, it’s a HUGE hit with naturals. How did you come up with the idea to do your song parody?
A: Myisha Thomas – I was thinking about a conversation I had with one of my cousins this weekend about her transitioning process and when I heard the Maurette Brown-Clark song, it just came to me.
Q: Black Hair OMG – You have an amazing voice and that made the video so much more impressive. Tell us about your singing history…
A: Myisha Thomas – Well I’ve been singing in church since I was about 5 years old, but I’ve never had any formal training.
Q: Black Hair OMG – Besides your beautiful voice, you have everybody DYING laughing with your sense of humor. Who are your comedic influences (famous or non-famous)?
A: Myisha Thomas – Katt Williams is definitely my favorite comedian of all time, Kevin Hart is another big influence, but honestly, the funniest people I know are my mother and father. Seriously, those old people have jokes for DAYS! Lol
Q: Black Hair OMG – How long have you been natural and for how long?
A: Myisha Thomas – I transitioned for 8 months and finally gave in and did the big chop in May 2015.
Q: Black Hair OMG – Was there any underlying message you were sending to the natural
community or were you just having some fun?
A: Myisha Thomas – I just wanted to encourage girls like me who are transitioning and may feel like giving up, to keep going. The message is patience, love, and perseverance!
