In an interview with She.Leads.Africa, Monyatsi shared the following about her goals

“I intend on making people see that we are capable of doing other things. We have other abilities beyond sports activities and office work. I wanted to embark on this from a young age but couldn’t because of lack of opportunities for people with disabilities in the entertainment industry.”

Her Motto is simply to “Be happy with what you have but never give up on what you want.”

The Looks That Afronized The Black Panther Hollywood Movie Premiere

Published

on

Lupita Nyong’o

Hollywood was Afronized last night at the Black Panther Movie Premiere. Now let’s be honest, we were a little disappointed when some of the Actors showed up in their typical Western gear. I know we should not take these things personal but we did. They could have Afronized even a little bit you know. Take Jamie Foxx for example, he wore a Wakanda T-Shirt, we think that counts … ok it is not perfect but at least he tried.

All was not lost of course. Our disappointment was all but forgotten when we saw the damsels of the evening. Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett set the tone and just had us gushing at how they maintained a very contemporary Afronista vibe. The men did not disappoint either. So we have compiled our favorite Afronized looks from the Purple Carpet.
