In December, Zen Magazine, one of our favourite digital magazines, shared with us its cover star and the first sportsman to grace the magazine’s cover, the handsome, Nigerian-Canadian Professional football player, entrepreneur and humanitarian, Israel Idonije.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria back in the 80’s, Israel Idonije is a Nigerian-Canadian defensive player for the Detroit Lions in the National Football League (NFL) in America. Zen Magazine sat down with the sport star to talk about what inspired him to start his foundation “The Israel Idonije Foundation”, and how it feels to be playing for the Detroit Lions.
Israel’s passion for charity and community service inspired him to start his foundation back in 2007 to give back to underprivileged kids in North America and across Africa.
See some the pictures and text from the interview below.
