The Tale

The magnificent history of Mmusa, the 10th King of the Malian Empire - born in the year of 1280, details an elaborate pilgrimage to Mecca with a league of 12,000 slaves clad in brocade and Persian silk, 80 camels with 300 pounds of gold each and a caravan of 60,000 men stretching as far as the eye could see. His was a journey in search of the world’s best scholars, architects and artisans to build his dream; turn the Great Malian empire into a land of spectacular wonder and beauty unlike any other place in the world.

In time he passed, and his empire turned to rubble, erasing any memory of the Majestic Empire. Seeing the desperate state of affairs, the gods breathed life into him, giving him a chance to reclaim what was lost and restore his empire back to its days of glory. They scattered artisanal pieces of his wealth and royalty all over the world; each piece handcrafted by the gods with messages and codes that would empower Mmusa throughout his journey.

Now he walks amongst us in search of the pieces from the gods to reclaim his wealth and rebuild the glory which was his lost empire. This is a capsule collection of the retrieved pieces of his royalty as he journeyed through the plains of Africa.
