Ugandan girl in Alicia Keys’ video

Feminism is what Alicia Keys’ latest single Superwoman is all about, but what is more interesting about the video?
Well, there’s a face of a Ugandan in the video of Superwoman.
If you’ve watched this video then you must have seen, towards the end, when a young African girl/student Nassanga Galabuzi comes on screen wearing a uniform.
To jog your brains a bit: Keys visited Uganda and went to Masaka where she met several children who had lost their parents to HIV/Aids. Some of them were looking after their siblings and yet still they had to go to school. However, we’re not quite sure of where Keys met Nassanga.
The Superwoman video was filmed on June 9 and 10 at Quixote Studios and Centre Studios in Los Angeles. And Keys plays many roles of women at their best strength and effort. Throughout the course of the video, she embodies a young mother applying to a university, an African woman, a businesswoman, a Cleopatra-like pharaoh and an astronaut.
Nassanga’s appearance is a sign that Keys has never forgotten about Uganda.
What a pride!
