Former Murcia basketball star Ovie Soko debuts self-help book after finding fame on Love Island


FORMER Murcia basketball star Ovie Soko has penned his very own book one year after finding fame on Love Island.

The 29-year-old’s self-help book will detail his life before the show and offer guidance, advice, and inspiration on how to become the “dopest” person you can be.

Announcing his happy news on social media, Ovie shared a snap of his debut book You Are Dope (subtitled “Let the power of positive energy into your life”). 

He enthused: “This book was one of the most exciting projects I’ve had the chance to work on over the last year, was such a great experience making something of substance to GIVE BACK.

“I think there is something that everyone can take away from the read to help them on their life journey. “Have a dope day people.” 

He added his new book will also be jam-packed with advice for fans who need it.

“Dopeness is innate, and it’s in everyone,”it reads. “You’ve probably been dope for a lot of your life and didn’t even realise it. Remember the time you did the washing-up for your mum and dad without them even asking? Dope.”

During his time on Love Island, Ovie was praised for his level-headed attitude in the villa and was often the go-to guy when the other Islanders were having relationship woes.

Spain’s UCAM Murcia former player has been inundated with incredible job offers since appearing on the programme and recently finished filming his very own reality show.

He continues to play professional basketball in France ad has his own clothing range with popular online retailer ASOS. 

In fact, basketball is such a big part of Ovie’s life that he previously said the sport prevented him from noticing attention from women.

“I think I night have been a bit of a late bloomer,’ he said

“Put it this way, I’ve always been very motivated and focused in the area of basketball, which has taken up so much of my time.

“So whether or not that was the case before, it’s a possibility. But maybe I just wasn’t aware of it.”
