That’s So Mariana Paving the Way for Young AfroBeats Artists

By  | 

Mariana MaLyn Donnelly was born October 24th, 2012 in Coon Rapids, MN. She is a young mastermind in the making, who has proven to be a beacon for her hometown Minneapolis, MN. She’s protested with her family in the streets of Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd, for equality among all black lives, and continues this movement in Los Angeles, CA where she resides with her family. She also takes after her rising star father Trevor “Tha Rift” Donnelly in the entertainment industry, who is also known for his presence on inequality, his music, and her message to youth. Mariana has currently worked with international recording artists Amber Mark on her new music video playing the young Amber Mark where she showcases her main talent; dancing. She has also worked with Tiffany Haddish at Kevin Hart’s studio for “VOMO: Vote or Miss Out” a nonpartisan comedy special event that geared to shed light on the importance of voting in the recent election to potentially make a difference in getting people to vote so their voices are heard. VOMO aired on ABC. In Mariana’s spare time she’s homeschooling, dancing, filming, acting and TikToking. She has starred in other music videos with major artists such as Afro B & French Montana, Pentatonix-Whitney Houston, Rosalia and Travis Scott. Mariana has also made several appearances in beauty pageants, fashion shows during LAFW, NYFW, MNFW, and HBO’s Westworld Season 3. You can expect more from this little star in the making. Mariana is also an inspiring young entrepreneur, where she recently launched her beauty brand “ReignbowDrip” on her birthday which was in October. Mariana has been dubbed one of the “industry’s favourites” for dancing and many other things. Not only is she making a name for herself in the dance industry, but she’s proven to also create a name for herself in the music industry, specifically the afrobeat era. Her Liberian roots play a huge part as to why she has been interested in the popular genre. Listening to Afro beats music from a young age has inspired the young star to take on the scene in a lane of her own.  Afrobeats is a music genre that involves the combination of West African musical styles such as fuji music and highlife with American jazz and later soul and funk influences, with a focus on chanted vocals, complex intersecting rhythms, and percussion. She has earned her stripes with some very notable people in Hollywood and is rising to the top.
