Khadijah is inspired by the all the boss women, trailblazers, rich bitches counting stacks and leveraging their resources to make transformative change. While an independent thinker, Khadijah thrives on collaboration and edification.
Historically, the first Khadijah of notoriety was the Prophet Muhammad's first wife. The "Mother of the Believers" was twice married, an experienced mother, wealthy merchant and a seasoned 40. Muhammad, 25 literally moved Lady Khadijah's product in what is now modern day Syria and earned a reputation as a honest salesmen with the greatest profit margins. Khadijah did not sleep on the "yung boi./buck" Khadijah became Muhammad's first investor in spirit and in coin to finance hubbie's "ministry". (Where my first lady's at?)
Fast forward to the 1990's in the United States and Khadijah went from an obscure 1970s Black Muslim/Nation of Islam baby girl name to "household name" as the central character Khadijah James as played by Dana Owens better known as Queen Latifah on the hit television show Living Single. TV critics dubbed Living Single the Black edition of NBC's sitcom Friends. (Like Really?! The nerve). While Rachel and Ross were lunchin' in a coffee shop, our beloved Khadijah James was the founder, publisher and editor of Flavor magazine, a Howard Bison, Brownstoner/owner, Scooter's Bae and bomb ass friend and cousin. Never perfect Khadijah ("Jah Jah") James inspired young black women to go from Mecca (Howard) to Mecca (Black New York--Fort Greene, Harlem). Raise your hand if you're trying to tap into your inner, industrious Khadijah.
James was not the only Khadijah making moves in the 90s, there was also Khadijah, the "Buddha Queen", the protagonist in Dirt Nation's rap song. Buddha Queen Khadijah was a respected female hustler who does time in jail and maintains the respect and loyalty of her crew. And here is the bonus -- The Queen possesses diversified interest and assets as an "executive producer" who builds a recording studio for her neighborhood folk. How can you not love a women that has multiple streams of income and puts people to work. We imagine that Queen Khadijah is now in her 40s with a line of CBD products, cannabis dispensaries and a tech investor. Khadijah's only federal woes are balancing her portfolio with T-notes and finding the right lobbyist on the Hill. Will you rap along with us "Khadijah, Khadijah -- My Budda Queen -- Khadijah, Khadijah" and please lean into it with your left shoulder.
Naturally, Folkus saw it only fitting to create a bold design for Khadijah -- the First Lady, Entrepreneur and Queen. Khadijah features black, plus red and blue to form purple and fuchsia smoke . Khadijah is wavy, deep and emits powerful vibes. Khadijah is paired with Zakiyah. I think we all can agree Khadijah possesses Folkus.
