Back in October 2021, Paris Hilton listed Attafuah’s 1/1 NFT “Aether: Galaxy Goddess” for auction on Sotheby’s newly launched metaverse marketplace. Commenting on Attafuah's work, Hilton said: “Serwah is so innovative and creative. She shows the importance of feminity and the role it plays in the universe. Femininity, womanhood, and female empowerment are her main focuses and it’s stunning. There is deeper meaning behind her work and it speaks volumes.”
