The Nigerian-American wrestler, Tolulope Omogbehin, who is popularly known professionally as Omos, has talked about his childhood.
He revealed that he grew up in Ketu, Alapere area of Lagos State.
The heavily built wrestler also revealed that he attended Maryland Primary School, still in Lagos.
Omos said this in a chat with reporters during a WWE Press conference in Lagos recently, for the announcement of “The Search for Africa’s Next WWE Superstar”.
Expressing himself in his native language, Yoruba, he said: “I grew up in Ketu, Alapere, which is just down the street. I went to Maryland private school. This is my home. I remember going to school and getting on the bus by 6am and coming back home.
“My primary school is around here and to think that I am here in a press conference to announce the search for Africa’s next WWE superstar is amazing.
“It is amazing that I am coming back home with WWE.”
Known as the WWE’s Nigerian giant and standing at an incredible 7ft. 3 inches, Omos has managed to establish himself as one of the most intimidating superstars in the industry.
In March 2021, he debuted on television at Wrestlemania 37, defeating the New Day (Koffi Kingston and Xavier Woods) alongside AJ Styles for the WWE Tag Team Championship.
