Raptors Basketball Academy coach Charles Ibezeako has suggested emerging talent Emmanuel Oluwatobi play basketball at the highest level, “if he calms down.”

Oluwatobi was named Most Valuable Player of the FIBA ​​Africa Youth Camp in September, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The FIBA ​​Africa Youth Camp was held in three African cities – Nairobi (Kenya), Saly (Senegal) and Abidjan (Ivory Coast) – last month with boys and girls from different African countries attending the joint initiative FIBA-NBA.

The Abidjan FIBA ​​Africa Youth Camps, which ran from September 15-18, were led by FIBA ​​experts Naoufal Uariachi and Nour Amri and NBA experts Joe Touomou and Craig Madzinski.

A total of 15 coaches, including Ibezeako, assisted in the implementation of activities at the Palais des Sports Treichville in Abidjan.

“If he (Oluwatobi) calms down and listens, he will get to high-level basketball because he is such a great talent,” Ibezeako said.

“After being named MVP of the FIBA ​​camp, he needs to learn more. Right now, he’s good at college basketball. “

On the quality of the camp in Abidjan, Ibezeako added: “It is one of the largest basketball camps in Africa at the moment. They have been organizing the talent discovery camps all over Africa, it’s a great initiative.

On his side, Oluwatobi, who is nicknamed Emma Airflow by his manager, Nnamdi Agbakoba, said he had to try harder for the best talent to emerge in Abidjan.

“It was not easy. It was very hard, ”she said in a recent parliament with the media in Lagos.
“I felt pains all over my body but my coach (Ibeziako) kept putting pressure on me, making me work harder.

When I was first invited to camp in Abidjan, I also had no money for COVID-19 testing. But thank goodness the money came later and I was able to make the trip.

It’s a great experience that I will always cherish.
