We Love Nigeria, But We Are Proud US Citizens-Serena &Venus Williams

Since the William sisters arrived in Nigeria couple of days ago, the ridiculous  rumour that they are of Nigerian origin -that has been around for sometime now- became stronger, springing arguments and debates, even on this Blog.
As a result, Venus and Serena yesterday put the insinuations to rest, when they said that they were proud to be American citizens.

Speaking at the Federal Palace Hotel, Venus, in a response to a question on their true origin, said that while they love Nigeria, the fact was that they were from the United States of America.
“This is another country that we would love to come from but we are from the United States and are proud to be from there as well”, said Venus
She added that their mother’s decision to name their late sister, Yetunde, after a Nigerian, was because of the mum’s love for Africa.
“My mum named my late sister after an Africa name because she loves Africa and that is all to it”, she said.
