Not sure where this is from but someone suggested … Ghana. Never mind, it’s juicy enough to give one the required distraction from the world’s problems so the country of origin doesn’t matter too much.
No prizes for guessing which one you would go for. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, yes?
African body builders
Can he grow any bigger? Adewale Niyi
Adewale Niyi gives new meaning to African body building! I am wondering how he carries those arms – perhaps he does that as his full-time job.
More images of him here.
Benin’s Djékoudjé Alexis: today and before
For no other reason other than that yours truly stumbled upon his images as an erstwhile stunning African man, yours truly has chosen to close out 2012 with the image of Benin’s bodybuilder, Djékoudjé Alexis who is doing what he can to stay … like the rest of humanity … forever young.
May 2013 bring a lot of happiness to all of us who have made it over the 2012 threshold. Goodness knows we are worth it.
More of Alexis’ images here.
Jim Morris over the years: at 25, 44, 61 and 71
Huffpost has an interesting profile of Jim Morris.This 71-year-old man puts men in their 30s to shame.
This takes the kind of self-discipline that should earn one some sort of national medal of honor. I wouldn’t, however, want to even know how much time and dedication he puts into staying in such great shape.
Congratulations Mr. Morris. I will not be joining you any time soon, if ever.
You can check out his website here if you wish to see more impressive pictures of Mr. Morris. And here is a website devoted to African muscles. None of the models on there are anywhere near 71 I am sure, but some don’t look as good as Jim Morris.
Newly crowned: Joseph Lubega (30)
Meanwhile, here is a Ugandan with enough eye candy to give a lot of women (and the discerning men) toothache. He is called Joseph Lubega (fights under the name Joey Vegas), 5’9″, 165lbs (75kgs), with a sexiness that should have a lot of drooling men and women walk into lamp posts.
He recently won some sort of boxing bout (and belt) but I can’t bothered with whatever that means. If you want to find out about it, follow it up here.
Eye candy to give you toothache: Joseph Lubega
My concern is with the more educative aspects of Lubega such as his captivating smile, teeth the size of thumbnails, lips galore, hands the size of paddling oars, fingers the size of palm fronds, a jaw that could stop a Volkswagen in its tracks. It’s difficult to believe that he is only 5’9″; he looks more like 6’2″ and counting.
And then that raw masculinity. Ooh, la, la.
I gather he is in Kampala and November 30 will be defending the title he won. Wink, wink.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Didier Drogba is a winner of big-stage games.
But he is also an exhibitionist:
Ah, okay …
I love a man who shaves his armpits
But, darling, that hair needs to go:
Nah, not in 2012!
The Ivory Coast Body Building federation – Fédération Ivoirienne de Bodybuilding (FIBBA) – has disowned Abraham Tchabe. They skirt around it but the reason for their action is that Tschabe (using the name Barry Marshall) took his clothes off, and engaged in sexually explicit acts – while the cameras were rolling.
I blogged about Tchabe here and was quite taken aback by the interest that attention garnered. The hits flew past 8,000 in no time at all which says a lot for a blog that is generally intended to be ‘therapy’ for yours truly than a renowned work of journalistic excellence.
No, he is not Ugandan, but who is bothering too much with that?
This is a family blog so I am not going to titillate you with Tchabe’s nude exploits. But you can check them out yourself here if you wish. Let’s just say that he doesn’t look bad at all.
FIBBA’s [verbatim] statement:
Informations concerning the activities of Mr TCHABE Abraham are circulating on the internet. The FIBBA, Fédération Ivoirienne de Bodybuilding, is not concerned by that. Advised of the facts and reckoning that those were infringing the ethic of sports and the code of conduct to which the grantee subscribed, the steering committee, according to the regulation, pronounced the bannishment of the athlete TCHABE Abraham, since date of January 4th, 2012. … Finally, the current stay of Mr TCHABE in the USA, is strictly private, and the activities he is conducting there do not concern us. TCHABE Abraham is an adult fully liable of his acts and conscious of their consequences.
Given the interest Tchabe has generated on the web (the nude pictures and video are at least 2 years old), it seems a little churlish for his country’s muscle body to disown him now. I mean, why would you push out the man who has brought you such fame? No publicity is bad publicity, right? FIBBA seems to think otherwise.
Tchabe is not the only body builder who has put all his glory on public display which, come to think of it, is what body building is mainly about. Kai Greene, too, has posed full frontal (not sure whether he also has a jerk off video) but that seems not to have gotten him into any bad books with his bosses as his Facebook profile suggests. Perhaps he didn’t/doesn’t have any bosses – apart from his fans of course.
Black as the ace of spades - Lucky Egberime
Above and below are images of Nigeria’s Lucky Egberime, beautiful body builder who will likely never be lucky in his chosen discipline because he is too black.
Egberime has the kind of infectious smile that should wow the judges but one suspects that he might be a little on the small side. His Achilles’ Heel, though, is his complexion. Yes, possums. In some disciplines, there is such a thing as being too black.
Given that body building depends on highlighting certain body features, Lucky can only impress on small stages surely. It must be impossible to accentuate those muscles for the judges on big stages with such blackness in the way.
Nigerian hotness - Egberime
Egberime is a beautiful specimen, mind. But I am thinking of a beauty, a beauty that wins different kinds of competitions … behind closed doors. Check out more of his pictures here.
African men have always been gorgeous – if you knew where (and how) to look. Here is a Ugandan athlete (courtesy of History In Progress) from the 50s or 60s. Name unknown unfortunately.
