Megan Thee Stallion received the key to the city of Houston on Sunday, May 1. And May 2 has been officially declared Megan Thee Stallion Day.
At a ceremony attended by members of the Houston City Council, rapper Megan received the key to the city. She lived one of the most exciting and happiest days of her life. The ceremony commemorated Megan’s philanthropy, talent and influence.
“Came home real quick to get THEE KEY TO THEE CITY,” she wrote on Instagram. “and in honor of my mother and grandmother’s birthday MAY 2ND is officially MEGAN THEE STALLION DAY IN HOUSTON TX. thank you Mayor @sylvesterturner for honoring me today and I will continue to give back to the city that made me who I am today #htown.”
Megan had very emotional moments. These moments were so natural and special. She talked about the impact her mother and grandmother had on her life, who died within weeks in March 2019. She said she would follow them.
“Both of these women helped me grow into the woman that I am today,” she said. “I don’t know what kind of lady I would be if granny didn’t raise me to be so kind and so giving. You could walk by these ladies’ house and they givin’ out dollars, candy—whatever they’ve got, they’re givin’ it out the door.”
She continued, “And I always wanted to be just like that. I wanted to be nice like them. They made me feel so beautiful and so loved, and they made everybody they met feel just like that. So I was like, ‘When I grow up, I wanna be just like them.”
