Chinonso has been recognised by FIFA and is a highly rated football freestyler.
He started football freestyles at the age of 8 after seeing clips of Jayjay Okocha, Messi, Ronaldinho and others.
Born in Warri, Chinonso said he wakes very early everyday to perfect his skills.
“I love freestyling because it is my gift. In my school, I like to entertain my classmates. Some people call me an amazing kid Eche. I started freestyling when I was eight years old. My dad showed me some videos of Messi, Ronaldinho, Okocha and I just started practicing,” Chinonso said.
“Every day I wake up at 4:30 am. I do my training then I go to school. After school, I go to the field and play football with my teammates. I would like to play for big clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and the Super Eagles of Nigeria. I would like to be an international freestyler and travel all over the world,” he stated.
