Concluding their final official day in Nigeria, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex engaged in a sporty event at Ilupeju Senior Grammar School, witnessing a basketball exhibition attended by various individuals.

The Duchess received warm Mother’s Day wishes from Masai Ujiri, Vice-Chairman of Giants of Africa and former NBA star, underscoring the importance of dedication in making such events possible.

Harry and Meghan unveiled a newly formed partnership between their Archewell Foundation and Giants of Africa, an organization leveraging basketball to empower and engage youth across the continent.

The Nigeria-born Masai Ujiri, who founded Giants of Africa in 2003, highlighted the transformative power of sport in uniting communities and driving positive change in Africa.

Expressing admiration for the charity’s work, Prince Harry commended Giants of Africa’s impactful initiatives and emphasized the unifying nature of sports that knows no boundaries.

Meghan shared her connection to the organization, recalling her time in Toronto, where she first learned about Giants of Africa—a moment she described as coming full circle.

In a lighthearted moment, Meghan refrained from attempting basketball skills, acknowledging Prince Harry’s athletic prowess as she engaged with players and Paralympians during the event.

The Duke and Duchess actively participated in basketball drills, interacting with young athletes and showcasing support for inclusive sports programs that champion diversity.

Giants of Africa, dedicated to empowering African youth through basketball, has made significant strides in fostering talent and fostering a sense of community across the continent.

Harry and Meghan’s visit to Nigeria, organized at the invitation of the Chief of Defense Staff, highlighted their commitment to initiatives like the Invictus Games that promote healing and resilience through adaptive sports.
