“The Other Akilah”

  • October 18, 2017

I’ve heard about Akilah Hughes aka @AkilahObviously aka “the other Akilah” for years.

We’re both black girls with brown skin, big hair, and bold lipstick who do comedy.

People often get us confused. In fact, an acquaintance of mine actually contributed $150 to the other Akilah’s GoFundMe campaign thinking she was me.

But last week while I was in New York, I finally got to hang out with her in the flesh, and she’s lovelier than I imagined.

Move over Chrises Pratt, Evans, Pine, and Hemsworth. It’s Akilahs Green and Hughes!
