From London, to Spain, Belgium, Switzerland and Cannes. Channel O VJ and Goal Diggerz season 2 co-host, SK, writes about his time in Europe shooting.
On the second episode of Goal Diggerz Channel O VJ, SK, hangs out with longstanding Arsenal player, Alex Song. Song takes time out his busy Barclays Premier League schedule to entertain his family out in London. He shows SK around his three story mansion, giving us a glimpse into how they roll in the big leagues.
SK blogs about his GD experience.
I thought I’d take this moment to tell you all about my experience while shooting Question is, where do I start? I saw and did so much, but here goes…
Firstly, I’d like to thank the Head of Youth Channels (Solly Moeng) for giving me the opportunity to be on this show and trusting me to do a good job. I’d also like to thank the production company (Fixerfilm) for working so well with me and being so understanding.
My European trip, started in London (England) where I immediately fell in-love with the people there, because of their love for black people, and it shows. The public transport in the UK is so amazing, convenient and easy to use – Africa could do with that kind of infrastructure.
I particularly enjoyed the nightlife in London, especially because they play African music in most of the clubs like Ice Prince, D’Banj, P-Square and Black Coffee to name a few. I had a hard time adjusting to the cold and rain, because I’d never experienced that type of weather in my life; it rained almost every day while I was there!
With that said, I got to leave the gloomy, rainy and cold London and went to the homeland of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Champions and 2012 EURO Cup Champions – Spain ‘Da Costa Del Sol’ (Coast of the South ).
I went to the beautiful, warm and tropical city of Malaga. I LOVED being there because I not only got to go swim in the Mediterranean Sea, but I also got to watch a La Liga game live at Da La Rosalida Stadium. They have some of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen in my life there, who surprisingly enjoy swimming naked. They love to stay in shape and it’s no wonder there’s training equipment at every corner. Most of all, they love SOCCER!!!
Straight from Malaga, I went to Belgium to a city called Kortjik. Where Jean Claude Van Dam (one of my favorite actors) is from. I only spent a day there and didn’t get to see much of the place, but I did get to eat some of the best chocolate in the world.
From Belgium, I went to Geneva in Switzerland, where we hired a car and drove across the country for 6 hours in the midst of beautiful, breathtaking scenery all the way through to the city of Nice (France). The most amazing thing happened while we were there – the player that we went to shoot invited me to join him at the 65th Cannes Film Festival which was taking place the next day in the city of Cannes. I got to see Hollywood’s A-List celebrities and some of the most pimped out yachts I have ever set my eyes on.
There’s obviously a lot more that I saw and did, but I don’t want to spoil season 2 of Goal Diggerz by giving you all the details. So for more of what? Where? and who I met in Europe? keep it locked on the big O.
Much love to you all from your BOY!!!
Holler at me @SKCoza.
