Who is MAKO Girls? #OfficialHype

Mimi (14), A-Ni (12), and Kena (16) Ochoa, better known as MAKO Girls; are West Indies decent sisters that took their love for singing and dancing to a professional level in the popular city of Atlanta. The girls have created a buzz in the eastern region of the States that has spilled over to an overseas fan base. From NYC to Bahamas, the trio has been seen on major networks such as Arise TV to being featured on infamous blogs like FreddyO for their special gift presented to KeKe Wyatt during her baby shower. Gaining a prominent audience, the MAKO Girls have that hit factor that has landed them opportunities that most teen girls would dream about. From their individual fashions to make-up choices, young girls across the country are craving for more with every social media post.

Mimi is the true definition of the “Girly-Girl“; she loves all things that blings, pink with a bit of sassy. A-Ni is “the perfect mixture of “Pop & Hip-Hip”; as the group’s very own Pop/ Hip-Hop princess who possess the attitude that most Tween’s admire. Kena embodies the “Punk Rock” attitude from the clothes to the music she listens to.

In 2015, the girls created signature moves that can’t duplicated. Their Glow Party has already been scheduled for the new year and fans in other states are asking the girls to bring the party to their town. A cosmetics endorsement with Kissable Lips Cosmetics now adds entrepreneurship to their resume and each member of the group has a specific shade of lipgloss and glitter lipstick. Their merchandise has become a must have after every performance.

Media has also taken a liking to the girls’ image and thus far they have been featured on: BlackCelebKids.com, 11Alive!-Atlanta, FreddyO.com, Women and Shoes Magazine, PresidentialStyleOnline.com, NuRadio, AtlantaDailyWord.com, CNN iReport, MadisonJaye.com, DivaGalsDaily.com, and Stardom 101Mag.com. Their video for the lead single “Turning Up The Crowd” can be seen exclusively on MTV.com/Artists.

This H.I.T. (Hardworking, Intelligent, Talented) trio has the passion and drive that will help them achieve their goal of world tours and packed arenas. They make music that is fun and family friendly and their growing fan base has surpassed the girls in their schools. As they put it, “We are everyday girls that want to show the world in order to succeed you have to believe in yourself and never give up”.
