African Pride: “My Pride My Way” Launch

I had an AWESOME time last night for the African Pride event. I hope everyone enjoyed the event that was able to attend.

The event was PACKED with so many people. Tocarra from America’s Next Top Model and Lance Gross hosted the event. I sooooo wanted to take a picture with Lance but I missed out 🙁  Dondria performed 3 songs including her hit song “You’re the one”. Also in attendance was Ebony Steele from The Ricky Smiley Morning Show who was the MC for the evening. Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show) and Jamie Foster from Sister To Sister stopped by.

The venue was huge. When you arrived, there were several stylists doing hair and makeup for attendees. They also had masseuses to do 5 minute massages.

On stage, my homie Jigga (barber to the stars AND also “Bibbs” – Malik’s bodyguard on “The Game”)  and two other stylists were there to talk about their craft.

They also had contests through twitter where you had to be the first person to answer a question correctly and you would win huge giftbaskets.

Of course you know the natural ladies were in FULL EFFECT. Tons of Bloggers/Vloggers were in attendance. @PerfectlyPretty @MUAAlex @NaturalChica @MahoganyBella @MeMyHairAndTheCity  ( I will add other’s twitter as soon as I get them)

Dondria and I.
