“The reason why we like this, this jewelry and this diamonds and stuff, they don’t understand is, because we really from Africa, and that’s where all this stuff comes from. And we originated from kings, …. So don’t look down on the youngsters because they wanna have shiny things. It’s in our genes…we just don’t all know our history.” – Pimp-C
“We came from Kings and Queens, we are of royal blood…”
The Queen of Sheba, according to the biblical narrative, was a woman of great wealth, beauty, and power. She reigned mighty in her land, her great reputation preceded her. Her presence was felt all over the continent, and she rubbed shoulders with great kings such as the wise King Solomon.
The Queen of Sheba embodies the zenith of greatness and royalty; qualities we, as royals ourselves, strive to channel.
Come experience royalty entertainment like none other. Join NASO on February 15th for our annual celebration: Africa Night.
Africa Night showcases different cultures within the African continent. We bring to light the young and western twist our generation has given to our culture. During the event you’ll have the chance to see African culture creatively embodied through music, dance, fashion, and much more. Those in attendance at last year’s show should come prepared for an even better experience! If this is your first time attending, get ready to dive into a night filled with rich culture and entertainment.
