IGNITE Real Talks: Serge Ibaka

Saturday, Jan. 11th, 2020
Doors: 6:30 pm | Show: 8:00 pm
A/B Auditorium | Lakeshore Campus
$5 Humber/UofGH Students | $15 Guests

NBA champ Serge Ibaka is taking a detour from the basketball court and bringing his passion for fashion to the Lakeshore Auditorium for our next IGNITE Real Talks on January 11.

As the first-ever NBA player from the Republic of Congo, Serge Ibaka is best known as the power forward for the Toronto Raptors, helping them win the 2019 NBA Championship. Although he is a dominant force on the court, Serge’s success doesn’t stop there.

Fans may know him as MaFuzzy Chef because of his YouTube channel – followed by over 230,000 people-which features his popular food series How Hungry Are You? and his fashion-focused series, AVEC CLASSE. Serge is also the founder of the Serge Ibaka Foundation, a non-profit created to focus on health and education for the Republic of Congo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

That’s not all, Serge has also produced two documentaries. The first being Son of the Congo, which tells his story of escaping poverty and violence in Congo to become an NBA superstar. Anything is Possible, which premiered in Dec. 2019, followed Serge as he brought the Larry O’Brien trophy home to the Congo.

Basketball, fashion, food, and philanthropy – what more could you ask for? Come to the Lakeshore Auditorium for a discussion focused on persistence, chasing opportunities, and career growth.
