Black excellence on full display as Nandi walks us through the continent of South Africa and shares the motherland’s gems and beauty secrets of their people.

I’ve always imagined the streets of Africa being filled with kings and queens, once I met Nandi Madida, I knew I was correct. This stunning South African actress who stars in Black is King alongside Beyoncé, is sharing with us tips from the motherland. She starts by saying Sawubona in her native tongue, which means hello. “Africa is luxurious naturally, from the sunlight, to the food, lifestyle, the way people smile, hospitality, and Africa is very reasonably priced for what you get.”

Beauty radiates from South Africa. From an ancestral perspective, to their braiding, beautifully curated fine arts, incredible fabric, their prints, and to even the sounds of Africa. You want to take a trip to Goodman Gallery for those beautiful curated arts and make sure you stop by Ntozinhle Accessories for some delightful beaded fashion. As far as the sounds in Africa, much of the tones are Afrobeats, which are taking the world by storm, including Nandi’s song, “Organic” that was released in September.
