Former Nigerian internationals Joseph Yobo and Joseph Dosu were among guests at the launch of Footie Moments With Nabila on Saturday.
Footie Moments With Nabila is the brainchild of Nabila Fash Oritsefemi, wife of Nigerian music star Oritsefemi.
Other guests present at the launching which took place in Lekki Phase One, in Lagos, were Oritsefemi and popular Yoruba actress Toyin Abraham.
Speaking about the launching Nabila said:”Today is for the official launch of my new born baby Nabillionaire Luxury and also Footie Moments With Nabila. I had Season One of Footie Moments With Nabila last year and Season Two is coming January 2021, so I think it’s the right time to introduce the exciting show to my fans, loved ones and Nigeria as a whole.”
Nabila shed more lights on what the football show is about.
“Footie Moments With Nabila is an exciting football show where I talk about football in the most entertaining way. It has four segments, the first segment is “Where are they now”. Here I talk about past legends, a lot of times these legends just fade away like you don’t know about them anymore so I try to bring them back.
“There’s the “Talent Discovery” segment which I’m very passionate about. I go into the slump to look for football talents and showcase them to the world.
“I have the “Celebrity Guest” segment where I interview international footballers, celebrities that are passionate about football.
“Also, I have the “Vox Pop” segment where we go on the street to ask people funny question about football, it’s really wonderful. Season One was big and I’m hoping Season Two will actually be a better one.”
She went on to reveal guests who appeared in Season One of the show.
“In Season One, the first celebrity guest was my husband Oritsefemi, then I had Odion Ighalo, I had present Super Eagles assistant coach Joseph Yobo, who happens to be the chairman of today’s occasion, I had Mrs Yobo, Desire Oparanozie, Super Falcons star, Solid Star, AY the comedian and others.
“For Season Two, expect not just Nigerian footballers but lookout for African footballers and also European footballers. I’m going to go farther with this one and it will be on cable TV and online.”
On why she decided to create the show, she said:”The reason why I’m into this is because I love football, it’s crazy because look at me like I should be loving fashion or other things but my passion is football. I just develop interest in football, so why not convert the passion into money so that’s what I’m doing right now.”
“In last season’s edition there was a boy we found in a slump in Victoria Island, yeah Victoria Island has a slump, and after we showcased him on my show scouts reached out to him and he went on trial in Turkey and he is back. I also picked up a boy in the slump of Ajegunle I brought him into my home, registered him in a private school in Lekki.
“I hope brands are going to see this and will come participate with us because the first season was self funded by me so I’m doing this launch for people to see how big this can go and also help others.”
And on her challenges:”It’s really challenging financially, logistics, like going into the slumps and sometimes when you go into these slumps you are forced to pay some money to certain people. Sometimes I have to schedule my interviews with the international stars according to their own schedule.
“For instance, if we want Ighalo we have to wait for him to come. So for this season I don’t want to start waiting I can always travel to go and meet them and that’s a lot of money.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
