In the spirit of well-being and self-care, British actor Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina Elba have announced their latest joint venture: a new skincare line. Named, S’able Labs (inspired by the couple’s last name spelled backwards), the new line is a gender-neutral line that prioritizes “ethical supply chain and reducing the use of toxic ingredients and unnecessary packaging.”

Reports say the idea for the line came from a conversation the couple had about feeling disconnected from people during the coronavirus pandemic. “It opened up the idea of wellbeing and self-care that we hadn’t really thought of before—looking at wellness from the outside in, in terms of your community and who’s around you. That’s when it clicked,” Sabrina told the media.

2. ‘The Real Housewives of Lagos’ to premiere this April

Showmax’s highly anticipated Nigerian edition of NBCUniversal’s “The Real Housewives” show is finally set to air. The show, which was in production for the most part of 2021, promises to take fans on an exciting journey following the lives of a yet-to-be-unveiled cast.

News of the new show first made headlines in September 2021 with Showmax confirming that the show will build on the success of the first two African editions- “The Real Housewives of Johannesburg” and “The Real Housewives of Durban.”
