Francis Antetokounmpo was born on October 20, 1988, in Lagos, Nigeria to Charles Antetokounmpo and Veronica Antetokounmpo. Francis Olowu Ofili Adetokunbo was his real name as of birth. However, following a spelling error on his sibling’s passport, his parents made the decision to change the family name to Antetokounmpo. He has four younger siblings: Kostas Antetokounmpo, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Alex Antetokounmpo, and Thanasis Antetokounmpo. Francis’ family has also been blessed with excellent athletic genes. His siblings have all been successful in creating a unique name for themselves in the sports world.
But in 1991, in search of better grazing land, his parents made the decision to relocate the family to Europe. They moved to Greece, but Francis was unable to join them until all the necessary immigration paperwork was finished. He consequently stayed behind in Nigeria with his grandparents before eventually joining his parents.
Francis Antetokounmpo was born into a sporting family. Charles, his father, was a former Nigerian soccer player who played professionally. On the other side, his mother, Veronica, used to be a high jump competitor in track and field.
Francis has four younger siblings, all of them like athletics, in addition to his parents. His brothers Thanasis and Giannis Antetokounmpo also play basketball professionally for the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA. While their younger brother, Alex, plays basketball in Greece, Kostas Antetokounmpo plays in the Euroleague.
Francis Antetokounmpo started playing sports after relocating to Greece, just like his family. With his younger brothers, he first took up basketball as a pastime. He eventually became a member of the Filiathlikos local Greek club, where he played for the youth team. He was given the opportunity to play basketball professionally after being promoted to the senior team. Ofili abandoned the activity since he had already grown passionate about football (soccer). He was a talented football player who played in the midfield and even made it to the semi-pro level. He played for a few months in 2018 after joining the Greek football team AE Sparti on a free transfer.
Francis departed Sparti in September 2018 and joined Aittitos Spaton, a different Greek football team. Sadly, though, his time with the new club was equally brief, and he left in 2019. He hasn’t joined a team since and hasn’t taken any steps to advance his football career.
In addition to sports, Ofili has dabbled in singing. He made his debut in the music business in 2020 with the tune Shekosi. He uploaded the video on YouTube, where it quickly became popular and received lots of views.
The musician chose Ofili, his middle name from Nigeria, as his stage name. Since then, he has recorded a number of other songs, including On My Level, Jump On It, and Count On U. Additionally, he has worked with various musicians, including Negros Tou Moria, Moose, and British-Kenyan musician King Kanja (That Thing).
There is no information available concerning his relationship status. Francis might be busy with his burgeoning music career at the moment.
