The Coronavirus is like any other pandemic that we have ever witnessed in our generation. With over 200,000 deaths globally, governments, culture, and life as we know are changing. With national lockdowns and social distancing in place in most countries, the effects of Covid-19 has been massive.
The latest issue also acknowledged black health workers around the world as an appreciation to those who work tirelessly day in, day out to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Sabrina Dhowre Elba is a Stunner on the Cover of DuJour Magazine, All Thanks to Hubby Idris Elba

Sabrina Dhowre Elba is the latest star to cover DuJour Magazine and she is photographed by none other than her delectable hubby, Idris Elba. To be honest, there’s nothing like being photographed by the person who believes you’re the most beautiful person in the world.
Read excerpts below:
On how she kicked off her modelling career
In my third year of university, I was approached at a mall by a woman who thought I should enter a pageant. I needed volunteer hours anyway for the program I was doing, and I thought it would be a good way to get into doing some philanthropic work, so I ended up doing it. I really didn’t think I would win, and I did. And it has stuck with me.
On her relationship and marriage to the man of her dreams
I feel very blessed that I met my soul mate. Who just happens to be Idris Elba. So much happened, [Idris was named People’s] Sexiest Man Alive; we got married. I had to pinch myself. Is this life really happening right now?!”
On her passion for issues of child marriage and gender violence affecting young girls and women
I am really passionate about helping women in general. My mum was a domestic abuse victim. I want to tackle those causes. I don’t want to sit in fear of saying the wrong thing. If I say the wrong thing, I am sure there are lots of people on Twitter who will tell me, and I’ll learn and grow if I think what I said was wrong.
