Alex Iwobi

Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, is making good use of his vacation by linking up with friends and family.

Perhaps his most memorable moment yet is a fun time out with multi-award winning British rapper of Nigerian descent, Tinie Tempah.

The 20-year-old, who was fully kitted in an Arsenal jersey, was in Ibiza, an island in the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of Spain.

Both posted images of the time together on Instagram but the footballer later deleted his.

Iwobi is believed to be a big fan of the 28-year-old who he followed as a kid.

No wonder he was utterly thrilled to have met him.

Like Iwobi, Tempah whose real name is Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu is born to Igbo parents from Nigeria.

The pair has followed diverging paths on their way to the top.

While Tempah released his debut album Dis-Overy in 2010, Iwobi was still learning the ropes with the Gunners’ youth teams.

But seven years after, both have had incredible successes in their careers.

Iwobi is now a regular at the Emirates since breaking into the first team in 2015.

Tempah on his own part has dropped several other albums and worked with some of the best in the world.

His third studio album, Youth, featuring Wizkid, Tinash, Zara Larsson and others was released on 14 April 2017 by Parlophone and Disturbing London Records.

Olajumoke Orisaguna, the bread seller turned model,  was discovered by photographer TY Bello when she walked into the rapper’s photoshoot in Lagos in 2016.
