Work hard and become the best was British model Naomi Campbell's message to the young African female basketball players from the SEED academy in Senegal on Friday. Campbell visited the young basketball hopefuls in Thies and Dakar last week as part of the Hoop Forum organised by SEED, a project to train and teach young players in Senegal. She had a sit down with them at the Museum of Black Civilisation in Dakar where the players could ask her any question they wanted.
