WWE star Omos visits Nigeria

Sports Brief earlier reported that more than 15 years after leaving Nigeria for greener pastures, Tolulope Omogbehin, famously known as Omos, returned to Lagos as a WWE superstar.

The 28-year-old, who was signed into WWE in 2019, had a stint in professional basketball earlier, but he was not quite successful in that sport.

Omos, who was in Saudia Arabia for WWE's Crown Jewel event where he went toe-to-toe with Braun Strowman in a battle of the giants, was spotted in Lagos, where he made an announcement as he joked, 'Omo Yoruba ni mi' (I'm a Yoruba man).
