Scott Obilo is an amazing Nigerian football player that plays and lives in Paris and is defying the norm by being a footballer and a model and I had the chance to have a chat with him about his life, accomplishments and dreams. Hope you guys enjoy this interview as much as I did. Happy viewing .
DVF: Tell me about yourself and background?

Scott: I'm Scott Obilo a semi-professional football player, a model and a graduate of the international institution of paris, studied International relations and diplomacy i'm twenty three years yo!.. I grew up in lagos but i live in Paris now.

I have two elder ones, one's a professor the other is a psychiatrist, my father is a business man and my mom is a retired journalist

DVF: Wow, that's so cool y'all are like the perfect blends of careers

Scott: Lool

DVF: So which did you get into first... Football or modelling?

Scott: Football

DVF: So how did you find out your desire for football and when did you get into it?

Scott: I just watched a bit of football growing up on the tv and it caught my attention and that was fourteen years ago

DVF: So how did you start your football career?

Scott: I played in some private teams in Nigeria and got linked to a french academy. So I moved

DVF: Thats nice, so for how long now?

Scott: I have been playing in france for three years

DVF: So do you speak french now?

Scott: Yeah, fluently

 DVF: Wow In just three years so what's the name of your football team and what do you play as?

Scott: I'm a striker for AS Aeroport de Paris

DVF: Nice... So how did the modelling start?

 Scott: Well I used to be under an agency. Berts productions and I didn't do many gigs till I got to Paris

DVF: Is the agency back here in Nigeria or over there?

Scott: Nigeria but I never did anything while I was with them though

DVF: So was modelling always a passion you had alongside with the football or did it sort of just happen because of your good looks and features?

 Scott: Lol. It wasn't a passion really. I have more of a passion for acting but the modelling always just popped up and it's kind of hard to say no to the cameras 😁

DVF: Hahaha I know the feeling, so why haven't you tried going into acting?

Scott: I have I got a couple auditions for some shows in Nigeria but my time just never let it work out

DVF: Yeah, the scheduling must be crazy ,so what kind of modelling are you into? editorials, commercials, photography or runway?

Scott: I did runway for the first time a couple months ago but mostly photography and a bit commercial right now I model for an upcoming European accessory brand and I'm about to sign on with another European brand

DVF: How was it like for you being on the runway for the first time?

Scott: Weird but hey, there were cameras so I was comfy😁

DVF: Hahaha.. you really love the cameras, okay so tell me about the brand that you're its ambassador? MΓ”SHE ?

Scott: Yeah, It's an upcoming Parisian accessory brand that was established this year It's fast spreading right now. It's hit London and Amsterdam already with its high quality sunshades

DVF: That's so cool I see you rocking them shades in photos ,the other European brand you would be signing on with soon what are they about?

Scott: It's owned by a young Brazilian couple and it's all completely hand crafted accessories and bags and It's called BOA stores

DVF: Sounds really nice

You'll have more stuff now than just shades to play with in front of the camera

 Scott: lol yeah I guess

DVF: So let's talk about fashion for a little bit ,how would you describe your style?

Scott: Simple but hip, It's something I had to get used to when I moved to Paris I try to keep it as simple as possible but also look modern, mature and hip

DVF: What of before you moved to paris?

Scott: Yeah i was never a flashy dresser. But I didn't see reasons to dress like I do at the moment

DVF: Well seems like the home of fashion has made an impact on you after all but then how can you not though? Paris is a very fashion conscious place so it naturally 

will get to anyone

Scott: Yeah it's kinda like that. You learn a lot and you've got to keep up with the city

DVF: Yeah, So do you think it's a wierd dynamic that you're a footballer and yet you model and even have a passion for acting?

Scott: Naah not at all but a lot of people think so, I think I can get it all to work perfectly

DVF: Yeah people will easily think so, okay what would you say has been the highest point of your football career and a not so great time ?

Scott: So far I haven't gotten as far as I would like to go but playing in the french cup and also getting to the semifinals of the coupe de Paris felt really good and also when ny team won the VTM cup but I'm pushing to go much higher

DVF: The french cup! Thats huge stuff

DVF: What of modelling? how far down the road are you willing to go?

Scott: As far as it takes me

DVF: As far as photography goes, do you have limitations? Like would you be willing to do nude photography or would that be a no, no for you?

 Scott: Yeah, that's a no, I won't do that

DVF: So do you have plans of coming back to Nigeria?

 Scott: I visit a lot. Maybe soon

DVF: That's nice, thanks alot for doing this and your time

Scott: πŸ‘πŸΎ You're welcome
