About King Solomon
King Solomon began with an idea, a story. Souleyman Gakou thought about sharing his Senegalese culture with the world through King Solomon. In 2019, Gakou started with twenty African shirts, now the Yougoudou Collection, selling them to friends and classmates. Two years later, King Solomon is one of Philadelphia's biggest African fashion brands. When you wear a piece from King Solomon, you represent a part of your culture, history, and tradition. You are wearing a piece made from Senegal and Nigeria by the best tailors. Soft, gentle fabric with beautiful patterns representing culture and authenticity. From West Africa to the world, King Solomon is more than just a brand. To learn more about King Solomon, sign up for our newsletters to receive notifications of our blog posts!
