Syrian-American Mona Haydar Raps about Hijab
A poet from Flint, Michigan, who posted her music rap video on Facebook this week about wrapping and wearing a hijab has seen her song go viral. The song, “Hijabi,” written and performed by 28-year-old Syrian-American Mona Haydar is catchy and fun, an ethos the video, produced and directed by Tunde Olaniran, underscores. As of Thursday, the video, which was released to coincide with Muslim Women’s Day, has amassed more than half a million views on Facebook.
