There’s one young, agile, and skillfully talented star no one has noticed in the game of football, he’s a London based Benin/Urhobo extract whose impressive track records as a dynamic ‘field merchant’ is second to none. Daniel Edokpayi’s knack for being outstanding in his chosen career isn’t surprising anyway; the shining star must be towing his mother’s path.
Daniel’s mum, Evelyn Obahor is one of Nigeria’s brightest broadcasters of note with multiple awards and several nominations to her credit in appreciation of her exemplary contributions as a thoroughbred in the broadcast industry. The London based Evelyn Obahor is the producer of the popular talkshow, JustEve, an interesting magazine programme which enjoys international syndications in major TV stations (terrestrial and Cable Stations) across the continents of Africa, America, Canada and soon to debut in the Caribbean.
Daniel’s ageless pretty mum, Evelyn was one of the pioneer staff that held sway with lots of fans teeming programmes at the then Degue Broadcast Network-DBN Television owned by Osa Sunny Adun in Lagos in the late 80s and early 90s.
Having identified his passion for sports, the young Daniel who’s now 24 wasted no time to proceed to the prestigious London Metropolitan University where he got trained and formally equipped with an enviable degree in Sports Therapy.
The tall and handsome Daniel who plays in the British Local League for Raynes Park Vane is so gifted and versatile that he combines being a right/left winger and even right back position for his club. Daniel who loves BMW cars has played in the same club with the likes of Victor Moses, Wilfred Zaha, Sean Scanell among others when they were much younger.
