Venus and Serena Williams are the cover star for Harper’s BAZAAR March Issue!

Published

The story of Venus and Serena Williams has been told many times. Now they get to be the ones to tell it,ON THEIR OWN TERM

Venus and Serena Williams have 48 Grand Slam titles (including 14 shared women’s doubles titles), several fashion lines, a venture-capital firm, an interior-design company—and now, executive producer credits on a film about their lives.

@kingrichardfilm tells the story of their early years through the lens of the fierce love of their father, played by Will Smith. “This isn’t a movie about tennis,” #SerenaWilliams tells @tressiemcphd for our March 2022 cover story, “This is a movie about family.”

That dynamic and Black familial love is a large part of why ‘King Richard’ works, both by typical biopic standards and as a counternarrative to the way media has written the Williams sisters’ story.

Learn more about the film and how Venus and Serena are redefining their narrative from the march issue of Harper’s BAZAAR

Maduka Okoye And Alex Iwobi Receive Death Threat For Crashing Out Of AFCON

Published

By

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye and midfielder, Alex Iwobi, were subjected to cyberbullying by fans, including death threats, after Nigeria’s exit from the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon on Sunday following a 1-0 defeat to Tunisia.

Youssef Msakni scored the only goal of the encounter with a strike from 25 yards out to fire Tunisia to the last eight and break Nigerian hearts.

Some fans felt Okoye should have saved Msakni’s effort, while Iwobi was sent off for a foul after just six minutes on the pitch for what was deemed to be a dangerous tackle.

Iwobi had been sent into the game in the 59th minute for Kelechi Iheanacho to help change the complexity of the game, but his sending off further piled pressure on the midfield and the defence.

An Instagram user @Clifford_Marius under a picture posted by Okoye wrote, “It will not be well with you. I pray you don’t see next month, you will die in a plane crash.”

@la_isle on Instagram wrote, “Maduka, you will not live long. You sold this AFCON match to the Tunisians.”

@pelexofLagos wrote, “Maduka Okoye, God will punish you and your family, your incompetence cost us AFCON.”

Striker Sadiq Umar had also been a subject of online bullying over his performance in some of the country’s group stage games.

Okoye and Iwobi were also subjects of social media memes.

However, they took individual action to reduce the effects of the abuses, with Okoye restricting comments on his Instagram handle, while Iwobi deleted all pictures on his page.

The Everton midfielder had previously deactivated his Twitter following the online abuses.
