I would like to introduce you to my friend Sam. I meet Sam at Mzoli’s in Gugulethu about 2 years ago.
He performs there at the weekends as Freestyle Football Juggler.
“Freestyle football, also known as freestyle soccer in North America, is the art of expressing yourself with a football, while performing various tricks with any part of the body. Similar in style to keepie uppie, kemari and the ball discipline of rhythmic gymnastics, it has become a widespread sport across the world and is practised by many people.”
Watching Sam as a street performer will leave you speechless when you see him doing his fancy footwork. He is really talented.
