Sheryl Lee Ralph, festival queen

Here’s Sheryl Lee Ralph at the Southern Sun Hotel in Lagos on Wednesday April 7. The event, part of the Lagos Black Heritage Festival, had the actress and Danny Glover as the draw. Danny Glover wasn’t there, but Sheryl Lee Ralph did just fine. My son, sighting her in the room, asked, "Is that not Moesha's mum?" She was Moesha's (step)mum alright, only hotter, and bubblier.

The night before (Tuesday, April 6), Ralph had given a one-woman performance, ‘Sometimes I Cry’ at the Shell Hall of the Muson Centre… Those present said it was an arresting turn on the stage, and she did cry. But the actress, who’s been given the Yoruba name Omowunmi, was all smiles at the Southern Sun. She is shown on the left with Nollywood Actress Rita Dominic; and with fans (below).
