I know y’all don’t believe me but I couldn’t make this ish up. Ashanti has just been named an Ambassador in her home town of Nassau County Long Island.
County Executive Thomas Suozzi placed an orange blazer with a tourism patch over her white dress at the event at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, where 16 tourists were offered an all-expenses-paid tour of Nassau. Ashanti sang at Suozzi’s two mayoral inaugurals in her native Glen Cove.
Ashanti says it’s “amazing” to be asked to “give something back to the community.” The singer recently released her fourth studio album, “The Declaration.”
The tourism campaign pitches Nassau as “The Island Next Door” and is targeted at visitors to the city. (Source)
I bet Shanti rocked that orange blazer all day shouting “I’m Queen of the Woooorld!” That’s great though…it’s good to see that she’s being honored in her home town. I can’t wait for Atlanta to give me a blazer…I wonder what colors they have?
