Serena And Venus Williams To Visit Nigeria In October by mukina2: 2:08pm On Sep 18, 2012
As part of a planned African tour, international tennis champions, newly crowned US Open champion Serena Williams and sister, Venus Serena, are scheduled to visit Lagos on October 30.

While in Lagos, the dynamic tennis sister will inspire, motivate and mentor young Nigerians through a tennis clinic and an exhibition match which will also be their first in Africa.

Programme coordinator Tunji Adeyinka said Venus and Serena’s story of passion, determination, hard work and self-belief serve to boost the morale of athletes and business people alike.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Lagos Tennis Club in Onikan from October 30th to November 2nd.

@Mukina must all your post get front page i suggest this is a pure case of abuse of privilege. Little wonder this country will fail to move forward.. Any little power we have we take advantage of it even @ the detriment of others. position of responsibility has become avenue to flex power..



And about your topic... Serena and Venus my advise is this don't waste your precious time to inspire, motivate and mentor young Nigerians through a tennis clinic and an exhibition match because those attending are a bunch of overfed and pampered rich kids with no passion at all for the sport in the end the programmes dies a natural death. No wealthy parent in Nigeria today will allow their ward to go into lawn tennis as professionals ... The hakeem olajuwon basketball clinic that Milo do organize back in the days nothing came out of it.. How many became basketballers for our national basketball team.. None!

Maybe one or both of them can seduce those pot-bellied men in power and get them to resign.
Re: Serena And Venus Williams To Visit Nigeria In October by Nobody: 2:30pm On Sep 18, 2012
I love the Williams sisters, especially Serena....


She feels like my sister, and she has all dem attributes I like in women......... tits, asses and dat Serena smile .... wink wink wink wink wink


We need them to visit our younger athletes, so that they can inspire them. Our athletes need inspiration badly if the just concluded Olympics is anytin to go by....


P.S When they visit, male kids, stop watching Serena's ass o, and concentrate on what techniques she has got to offer o....

ismhab: Are they not affraid of boko haram? even arsenal had cancelled their trip to Nigeria.

I won't be surprised if the visit is cancelled at the eleventh hour, when the reality of the trip dawns. They might opt for a non-risk video or tele conference. The fear of BH, Kidnappers, et al is beginning of wisdom.

must people always sound so bitter? if you do not like the news why not just ignore it and move over instead of spewing bitterness all over the place? if you are not a fan of the William sisters, their are numerous young people in Nigeria who are trying to go into professional Tennis and i know this would be a massive inspiration for them. what if we had a Tennis medalist at the just concluded olympics? e for no remove small shame? SMH at some people sha

Bros I believe you.Can you imagine the mamas that will bring their kids to that clinic.Heavy and poorly over-fed kids that can't walk.I can just imagine that.The real people with determination to be like the williams cannot even make the trip let alone pay for the gate fee.

IN OTHER NEWS, The Newly appointed Boko Haram spokesperson Abu 'KAKA' Has expressed excitment at the news of the visit of the Williams sister to Nigeria in October.. He has guaranteed their security and has adviced them to move about without fear as he will be in-charge of their security and logistics during their visit.. A special welcome contingent of Mujahadeen and Jihadists would be at the airport to welcome them specially.
