Video: Wass ,The French Freestyle Genius ,Is In Singapore

Wassim Benslimane, or Wass, the 22 years old french full time freestyler from Clermont-Ferrand (France) was in Singapore to perform for Butter Factory.

In the interview Wass shared his opinion about freestyle and also lamented that the opportunity of playing professional football had passed him by.

See Wassim do the 'Wass Arc', 'Spinning' etc in the video.

In the second part of the interview, Wass talked about the difficulties he faced when he just started out as a pro freestyler.

The 'stylish' former baker admitted that doing freestyle was not his initial intention. He wants his kids to hold regular jobs and not be pro freestylers like him. To him, freestyling is not a job. Working as a pro freestyler feels like a holiday everyday...

Ironic remark.

He also admitted that Thierry Henry is his favourite footballer (stylish player) and Paris St Germain is his favourite soccer team (Because he lives in Paris).
