Pick A Book Not A Knife, Shoot A Ball Not A Gun – Olumide Oyedeji Basketball Clinic Comes To South East London


Olumide Oyedeji is an Ex- NBA basketballer, and the captain of the Nigerian National Basketball team. He has been running this basketball clinic fully self-funded for 15 years in the US, Nigeria, China, Japan, and other locations worldwide. The essence of this camp is to teach the teenagers about responsibility, discipline, team spirit and a sense of identity. This is the first time the camp has come down to the UK and the kids are excited. Afrocentricity unleashed visited the Damilola Taylor centre, Peckham in South East London yesterday to witness the opening day of the basketball camp. There were about 20 kids aged between 13 and 17 receiving instructions on basketball, learning preliminary dribbling skills, shooting skills and stretches. They seemed excited, bubbly and generally having a lot of fun. If you live around these areas, please encourage your children to attend if only for the lessons they might learn regarding being responsible in the soceity. The camp ends tomorrow in a grand style with some music artistes, and popular DJs performing at the venue. We will be posting some pictures from the day very soon.
Let’s make our societies better!
