Etuwe Bright Junior
Etuwe Bright Junior (b. 1988, NG) first set foot in Belgium at the age of 18. It was in November and he didn’t have a winter coat because he hadn’t thought it would be necessary. As a football player from the Nigeria Under-20s, he figured all of the clubs would be fighting to get him. Now he is 30 years old, plays football with KSC Grimbergen in the First Provincial and works in a factory. In addition, he tours through Europe with the Star Boy Collective – applauded on stage one day, back at the assembly line the next. He previously appeared in three other productions; Look On the Bright Side is the first production he made himself.
Star Boy Collective is a group of West African football immigrants/performers who operate through Monty. The Star Boys work under the direction of Ahilan Ratnamohan, an Australian with Sri Lankan roots who now lives in Belgium.
