US-born A’Legends, a name that is synonymous with Pure Class, doesn’t seem to have any brakes on her journey to Hollywood. That is where she wants to, not only whirl her fashion taste but all her other talents, including her brand.

Her most recent surprise comes with the hosting of Thanksgiving, a meal for some 100 persons in her Philadelphia community, on Thursday, November 23, 2023.

According to A’Legends, The sumptuous meal includes curry, jerk, and fried chicken, along with collard greens, and candied yams, served with canned beverages.”

It seems A’Legends thought about this charitable deed at the right time. “I put the idea of Thanksgiving meal to Shana, proprietor of a Caribbean Cafe. She did not hesitate to come on board. Of course, I did not expect anything less. She is the sister of Flippa Moggela (Flippa Mafia), a friend of mine.”

With state-of-the-art facilities, the finished products were finger-licking. “I am so honoured and privileged to do a project which will remain in the minds of so many people. Thanks to everyone who has been a part, including Ms. Pearl. All those big smiles that came during our servings are a reminder that there is much we can do for others. We were kept busy between noon to 4:00 pm of the event.”
