We love it when women and win and we love it even better when they win together!
The Gorgeous Emezi Sisters Akwaeke, an author, about to publish her first book and her younger sister Yagazie, an accomplished photographer were recently featured in renowned Vogue US magazine under an article titled 5 Families Who are Changing the World as We Know It shot by Annie Leibovitz!
The article focuses on close-knit families (biological or self-defined) propelled by a desire for change and are not waiting for the world to catch up.
Akwaeke took to instagram to share the news earlier and said “…from ekenna avenue to the pages of vogue —naija no dey carry last!” we couldn’t be more happier… congratulations to the Emezi Sisters, they certainly didn’t come to play!
