Former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) 2020 housemate, Ozoemena Joseph ‘Ozo’ Chukwu, has recreated an iconic Kobe Bryant photo.
Kobe Bean Bryant was an American professional basketball player. A shooting guard, he spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association.
The NBA star died at age 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, due to blunt force trauma sustained from a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. A number of tributes and memorials were subsequently issued, including renaming the All-Star Game MVP Award in his honor.
Taking to social media, Ozo paid a tribute to Kobe as he recreated his iconic picture. Sharing the inspiring picture, he shared a quote of the NBA star writing;
“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do” – @kobebryant
