When an aunt sent Oye Diran an old family photo, he was mesmerised by the high sense of fashion and style exhibited by the Yoruba women of West Africa in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Inspired, he ploughed through the internet looking for more vintage images of the outfit but was disappointed with what he saw.

The new GR Supra will be very hard to beat

On Sunday, the all-new GR Supra became the fourth new Toyota GT500 model in a row to win on its SUPER GT debut, following the Lexus SC430 (2006), the RC F (2014) and the LC500 (2017).

Mark A. Carlson

Leagues like the NFL have more than a century of history and have evolved into multibillion-dollar organizations — but they all started from humble beginnings. Many ambitious startup leagues have attempted to duplicate that magic only to realize that running a sports league is no easy feat. Some failed startup leagues organized around existing sports. Others created imaginative and unfamiliar new athletic contests. All, however, have an interesting story — and maybe even lessons you can learn from their failures.

The brainchild of WWE boss Vince McMahon (back then it was the WWF), the XFL lasted for only a single season in 2001 — and then many years after that, it came back to start a season in 2020.
