David Nso, model, fitness instructor and actor, is best known for his charisma, unavoidably captivating looks, muscular definition, intellectual and positive outlook on life and informative bites on fitness and nutrition.
David was born in Nigeria to a Cameroonian mother and a Nigerian father but soon returned to Cameroon, where he spent most of his childhood and early adult life. He made the bold move from Cameroon to the United States in July 2002 to reunite with family and pursue his dreams. His journey to success began with a fateful encounter with a famous fashion photographer. He spotted the raw talent in David and offered his expertise and professional connections to help launch his model and acting career.
In January 2008, David moved to New York City to further his career as a model, actor and fitness trainer. David's Television appearances include the NBC series "Kings", HBO series "The Wire", USA Network’s "Royal Pains", HBO comedy series "Flight of the Concords", ABC’s comedy series "Ugly Betty" and "Sex and the City 2" (released in 2010) as a rugby player. FabAfriq went to meet this dynamic young man for a chat and this is what he had to say:
FM: If you could describe yourself in 5 words, what would they be?
David Nso: Wow! God Fearing, loving and hardworking
FM: What makes you smile?
David Nso: I am happy when I do things I am passionate about; fashion and acting. Recently, I have teamed up with other positive people and hopefully, we can work together to build the Cameroon Fashion Industry.
FM: What’s your deepest fantasy?
David Nso: My deepest fantasy is taking a vacation to the moon(Laughs out loud).
FM: When was the last time you cried?
David Nso: I cry when I achieve something great like working with individuals and companies who share my vision. Working on my latest project in Cameroon (Tears of joy), we encountered lots of obstacles. We lack structures in Cameroon which are commonplace in other countries. We have to build everything from scratch but I never cry when I am desperate or when I fail. I simply dust myself off and move forward.
FM: Who would you love to sneak away on holiday with?
David Nso: I have one person that I can sneak away at anytime of the day. She completes me, she is my other half and we motivate each other.
FM: What is your most current accomplishment?
David Nso: I recently did a fashion commercial for men with Mehcad Brooks (Actor) on BET and walked for the LiLa Nikole swimsuit line on BET Rip The Runway Show 2011.
FM: Who would you want to be stuck on a desert island with?
David Nso: I want to be stuck with the person I can sneak away with at any time. No names for now (laughs).
FM: If you had to go away and could only take one thing with you, what would it be?
David Nso: I’d take my bible and a GQ magazine.
FM: It was a pleasure talking with you and hope to catch up with you later. Thank you.
David Nso: Anytime. I have had a great time.
