Sure, sure, the Mipsters have the best clothes I’ve seen in a music video but… actually I can’t think of anything pernickety to say. They just do have the most amazing clothes I’ve seen in a video in a very long while. Solange’s Cape Town perfection in Losing You is now a misty, patterned memory.
But if you are gonna go and fetishise cute hijabi girls please join me in a sinful indulgence: watching Saima videos on a loop on YouTube.
Saima Chowdhury is British, of Bangladeshi origin and is around 20. What does she do on her YouTube channel? Do you really care? Sometimes she does 17 accents with her BFF Fathima. She does a mind-boggling, hilarious, sexy hijab tutorial, goes on and on about her periods, complains about peeing in a sari, calls her brand-new husband Mr Potato, does a dance party 4 minutes into a 7 min video to celebrate her wedding and is creeped out by human poo in a bus seat.
Saima is cuteoverload cute, has a different accent every sentence, 400 affectations, talks way too fast, makes cute noises at her kitten way too much and has fits of stream-of-consciousness pointlessness. I am addicted to Saima and her clothes.
At some point you will wake up at night giggling at the memory of Saima imitating Nicki Minaj. Then you will know you are hooked too.
