Lansing store offers African experience

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — A new store showcasing African culture and fashion opened its doors today in Lansing.

Rihab Musa is a determined woman who can now add store owner to her list of accomplishments. She says before securing a job as a psycho-therapist the search for employment was mentally tough. “I started making handmade jewelry as a way to cope. Cause I had anxiety first of all, like I can’t find a job. So I started doing that and then my family and people were like whoa,” Musa told 6 News. “So I was like maybe it does look good. First, it was just a coping mechanism but it turned out to be a business.”

All her hard work has paid off and Nubian is officially open. “It has anything from art, clothing, jewelry, rings. anything you can name that is inspired by Africa is in there,” Musa said.
