Kramer, Firewall's right. I heard about her on NPR about year or so ago, when she had a new album out. Her somali is mad funny tho, as ya'll should listen to one of her songs. Gaja-Gaja is def. an understatement, but she did good for herself. lol. Anyways, her famz were from Somalia, Aluula and Xamar to be exact but her mom's famz is NOT ethinically Somali. Ethio-Ormo iyo wax saas ah waaye.The older chap in the picture with the eye is her maternal Grandfather. She'd sung about him in one of her songs.
Thing about half Italians is that they are mad dark to begin with. Mixed with blacks they are guarenteed to look mad african. I know this one family, whose kids are half italian and the Closest to Italian they resemeble is Hazel eyez. Really "reer barawi" lookin. lol
