When Ashanti was honored with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, the singer’s mother held the mock plaque she bought her daughter 20 years ago.

The singer’s mother, Tina Douglas, said she bought a souvenir star for her daughter because she believed she “would get one like this someday.” BBC reports.

In her acceptance speech, Ashanti explained that Douglas bought the plaque years ago during a trip to LA: “She’s had this for over 20 years, from the first trip to LA when I was recording my album.”

The singer said, “My mom’s first trip to LA … she went in and bought one of those little fake Hollywood stars from the gift shop and she had my name put on the star, and she came back and said, ‘You’re going to be one day.’ get one of these.’

“I said, ‘Ma, I don’t think we’re going to get one like that!'”

She then invited her mother onto the stage and showed the souvenir to the crowd.

Douglas said, “I told her, ‘You’re going to get one of those stars.'”

After revealing her star, Ashanti shared billboard: “It’s surreal… I’m shocked, stunned and overly grateful. This is an integral part of my career and the fact that it will be here forever is a big deal.”

“The fact that my mom started this is surreal,” the singer added. “She really felt like, as a mother, she was saying, ‘My kid is going to have this.’ She manifested it and I am forever grateful.”

Known for hits like “Baby” and “Foolish,” the award-winning R&B singer was recently sampled by British rapper Aitch.

Ashanti’s debut album earned her a place in the Guinness Book of Records for fastest selling female debut album.
