Nairobi - After setting up a mobile telephone company known as ‘Eto’o Telecom’ in his homeland, former Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o is branching out into fashion, with his line of premium collection of shirts, caps and sneakers set for release internationally in the coming weeks.
Appearing under his new brand ‘Samuel Eto’o 9’, the collection is mainly menswear and are being designed and manufactured in Turkey, where an experimental batch was released into the local market last February, according to Gabriel Pascal Nyemeg Nlend, a Cameroonian designer, who masterminds the project.
“This project is recognition of Samuel Eto’o’s achievements in African football. Buying these stuffs is like saying ‘thank you’ to him for the joy, pride and honour he has given to us as Africans through football,” Nlend said.
