Shot between Toronto, Paris and Kinshasa, the TRACE-produced #IAM Serge Ibaka docu-series gives us a glimpse into the life of the NBA champion.
On June 13, the Toronto Raptors became the first Canadian team to win the NBA finals. Drafted in 2008, power-forward Serge Ibaka is now the first African of Congolese descent to become a NBA champ. An ultimate accolade for the 29-year-old who was first spotted in Spain before flying to the US.
A kid from Congo, becoming an NBA Champion is sureal. I was not supposed to be here but I never lost faith. This is a dream come true but also an opportunity for me to remind every kid in Congo, in Africa and everywhere that anything is possible. Thank you Toronto and Canada 🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/vigq4XMPrE

A success story that TRACE was able to document for several months by following the player in Toronto, Paris, Brazzaville and Kinshasa. The outcome is a 6 episodes docu-series in which we learn more about Ibaka, his journey and his ambitions. Titled #IAM Serge Ibaka, the series should be available in September. Stay tuned.
