I would Have Been A Footballer - Nigeria's Soul Singer, Praiz

Nigeria's rich and famous, soulful singer Praiz stopped by at Pulse Sports centre, and reveals his remarkable passio for sports, football in particular... Interestingly, he has been a Bracelona fan for 20 years now

Rich and Famous Praiz visited our studio for a friendly chat and he revealed to us an exclusive part of himself, different from the musical vocalist that everyone knows

Praiz began by explaining his interest in Sports and disclosed that he would have been a footballer if not he wasn’t doing music

Here are the excerpts:

Before Music, Football was there, I actually thought I was going to be a soccer star. I played professional soccer, though for a grassroot team. I love soccer all my life. Everyone who knows me, knows me as a great player

Most of my friends and teammates actually play for the super eagles now

God has plans for everyone, for me it had to change to music; though I love soccer

My favourite club is Barcelona; they are the best team in the world and I have been a supporter since 1994.
