Williams’ sisters in love …with D’banj!


Curvy American tennis superstars, Venus and Serena Williams
have openly declared their love for Nigerian pop star, D’banj.
The two sisters who were on a one-week tour of
Nigeria recently caused a stir at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Court, when they
sensationally danced to the beat of D’banj’s popular hit track, “Oliver-Twist,”
to the amazement of the cheering crowd.
Speaking exclusively with Express Sports at the
Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos, later in the day, the celebrated sisters revealed
that they were a big fan of D’banj, a reason they went wild when the DJ played
his song, during their exhibition match.

“D’banj is not a stranger to us. He is a big fan
of ours and he is one of the greatest musicians to come from Africa. We also
love his music and are disappointed he is not physically here to thrill us
today. All the same, we had fun,” Venus admitted.
“We have always admired and love him. We like his
style, he is a symbol of a typical African musician, ‘Serena added with a smile.
She continued:  “The emotional experience
we’ve had in Nigeria is absolutely awesome. It’s one of the most exciting
moments we have ever had in our careers and we believe this visit would “break
the mould’’ and inspire Nigerian youngsters who look up to us. This moment will
always linger in our memories throughout our life time.
We appreciate the support and love our Nigerian
brothers and sisters have showered on us within the short time we have spent
here. This is our first visit to Africa and we really felt at home and enjoyed
every moment of our stay starting from our arrival at the international airport.
The enthusiasm, the reception and warmth are
experiences we will like to go home with. We will be happy to be back again.’’
Meanwhile, we reliably gathered that the
organizers upon realizing how badly the famous sisters wanted to meet with
Dbanj, equally tried linking them up with the Koko Master, but didn’t succeed
due to time constraints.
