As the NFL prepares to takeover London again this month, for the eleventh consecutive year and the first of three regular season matches, the UK has a new homegrown hero in America's game.

Efe Obada is the NFL's newest sensation after making an internet-breaking debut for the Carolina Panthers last month. With one sack and one interception coming in the business end of his debut game, the 26-year-old was awarded the game ball and earned headlines all over the world. Efe became the epitome of an overnight sensation.

Born in Nigeria but raised in Brixton, Obada is a history-making game changer after becoming the first graduate from the NFL International Pathway program to feature in a competitive game. In addition to making a splash on the pitch, Obada's inspirational back story has also earned him admiration. Obada arrived in London without his parents at just 10-years-old and spent part of his childhood homeless. Efe credits American Football – and particularly his childhood team the London Warriors – for giving him focus and a platform with which he can change he and his family's life forever.

Complex caught up with Efe Obada on his return to Brixton with Nike, just one week after his life-changing Carolina Panthers debut, to chop it up over the NFL's influence in London, Naija pride and bringing the sound of Ghetts to NFL locker rooms.
