Serena Williams last Saturday, beat Maria Sharapova in the French Open finals to take the title at the Tennis Championship. It was her 16the Grand Slam win and she's not backing down.

Jennifer Eliogu – Ifunanya : Romance Meets Music

Posted in: , ,

This is honestly one of the best songs I've heard come out of Nigeria in recent times.

I love this, and will buy a CD when it becomes available.
