Name: Eloho Orogun Agency: B&M Models (Toronto) | Hometown: Croydon, England | Nickname: My name is nickname enough. Lol. But some people call me Loho. Oh, and my granny calls me Monsieur Ilaho. Instagram: @sonoafricano
As a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I’ve always wanted to be a doctor, but then in the tenth grade I wanted to be an architect so I went and studied architecture, finished the degree and realized it would be pretty boring after a while. But hey, at least I’m qualified.
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you? I’m actually painfully shy, but my subconscious response is to overcompensate for it so I end up coming off as really outgoing.
What’s one subject you could talk about for at least 5 minutes? Music!!!! Anything to do with melodies and harmonies I just become a complete nerd and spazz out when I hear some South African, Marianas Trench type harmonies. It’s amazing. I’ll stop here. Lol.
Describe a favorite childhood memory: Summers in Switzerland with my family. We used to stay in a mountain resort in the Canton of Vaud. There’s an amazing view of Lake Geneva.
What is a band/movie/artist/cool thing you recommend? Movie, The Godfather. Just the first one though. Band, Marianas Trench again because of their harmonic arrangements. Cool thing, pick up an instrument and figure out how to make it sound nice. It’s what I did.
