Two lucky Beyhivers got the shoutout of a lifetime while seeing Beyoncé in Seattle.
Ribicca Mamuye and Hamdi Mohamed were spotted in the crowd by Mrs. Carter at the CenturyLink Field stop of the Formation Tour and it was for all the right reasons.
Both Mamuye and Mohamed rock their natural hair beautifully and for obvious reason, Queen Bey was all about it.
Ribicca shared a video on Instagram of the moment when Beyoncé herself gave the two friends a thumbs up for their gorgeous afros.
Hamdi told Buzzfeed that she was initially reluctant to wear her hair out in all its glory because she didn’t want to block anyone’s view but encouragement from her friend to let her hair be carefree ultimately had an amazing reward.
“My hair is big, so I tied up my hair to stop bothering the people behind me [but Ribicca told me] ‘Your hair is beautiful, let it out.’” she said. “As young women of colour, the work Beyoncé has done is really inspiring. It’s one thing to be that close to Beyoncé and for her to take two seconds [to] compliment you… It’s so surreal.”
Way to stay in formation ladies!
