“The ancestors reside here.”  ​This comment was made by one of Cameroon’s paramount kings and echoed by twelve African Kings and Queens who recently visited our gallery.

Twelve African Kings and Queens toured the Bronze Kingdom during the Kings Cocktail Party hosted there in August 2018:
“This place is a temple.”
“The Kingdom has brought Africa to America.’”
“This place is sacred.”
“We are at home.”

Referring to the comments by the African Kings and Queens Bennett commented, “For any and all of the people that may have doubted the importance and authenticity of the collection, the Kings commentary assuaged all doubts with their validation of what the collection meant to them. And who should know better than them as most of the collection had come from their country.”

This was the first time that such a large and diverse group of Kings and Queens from West Africa visited Central Florida, representing the great nations of Cameroon, Togo, and the Congo.


Their comments of appreciation and admiration brought tears to the eyes of those in attendance. A royal ceremony with noble family attire was presented to the owners of Bronze Kingdom, Rawlvan and Iantress Bennett, making them Cameroon royalty.
