Rakiatu Bangura or “Queen Raki” is a Creative Director and Choreographer hailing from Sierra Leone. Make no mistake though, this Choreographer and Activist says, “Dance is Who I Am, Not What I Do.” A bold statement which in fact describes her very style of choreography. With over 21k followers on Instagram, Raki has earned herself faithful fans and has recently created her own agency “Queen Raki & Adama Dance Agency,” to manage other dancers. An accomplishment she describes as her “Most Remarkable” one yet.
As an activist, Queen Raki has assisted both in community work and continental support, partnering with Africa Gives Back International, to feed the homeless in the DMV area as well as our homeland, Africa. An initiative that has also helped in providing drinking water and medical supplies to countries in West Africa.
Queen Raki says, “I am a Celebrity dancer, Choreographer, Creative Director, Therapist, Activist, and Entrepreneur that utilizes all my professions to advance African Culture and ideology.”
