Henan Huishang of China defender, Onome Ebi has revealed another side of her creative life, as she tries out in modelling during her free time.
Footballlive.ng reports that the Super Falcons’ alternate skipper, who was recently signed on as a brand ambassador of a wine making company, is flaunting her pretty fair-skinned looks.
Although 35, Ebi is not shying away from showing off her curves, which she believes shows the woman in her, compared to the tomboy outlook she had a kid.
The product of Omidiran Queens of Osogbo, who has featured in over 50 matches for the Falcons and won four titles at the Africa Women Cup of Nations, took to social media to show off her svelte looks.
She had disclosed in an earlier interview that she preferred dressing like a boy while goring up, until her mentor in the national team convinced her to do otherwise, which she admits accentuated the woman in her.
In order to maintain her shape and keep her fit, Onome says she prefers doing aerobics on her, but goes to the gym once in a while, all in a strict bid to keep the shape she is happy to flaunt in her latest photo shoot.
Ebi recounted: “There was virtually no female footballer that did not grow up as a tomboy.
“I was called ‘man-woman’ while I was growing up because I was a chronic tomboy.
“After I began playing for Nigeria in 2003, I had a sports mother that told me that I had to change my look.
“She said that I looked more feminine than to be wearing men’s clothes. I was not comfortable in women’s clothing at first.
“But, after wearing it for some time, I dropped all my tomboy nature and started acting like a woman.
“I don’t go to the gym personally but I love doing aerobics. I always do aerobics at home on my own, I don’t use the gym.”
