Samuel Soba is one of such men often talked about for being married to celebrities, not just any celebrity but super-celebrities. Still yet, a lot of controversies surrounds who he really is as he is heavily associated with another name – Serge Ibaka, a known NBA star. Is it the same person or not?

Here we are going to introduce Samuel Soba to you with the conspiracy about his identity which you probably never knew as well as brief you on five things you didn’t know about him.

Who is Samuel Soba?

He was born on December 1982 as an American citizen in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States. There is no information pertaining to the childhood of Samuel Soba, his educational background, parents and all of such things typical to a young lad are relatively unknown and not associated with the identity of Samuel Soba. This gives more reason to doubt if this identity wasn’t just made up to hide the real identity of Keril’s husband.

It is not known what he did for a living before meeting Keri, neither is it known now what he does for a living. There are no career records existing of him whatsoever, no friends, no one has ever come out to say- yeah! he knew him from high school, college or back in the hood! This guy is simply just known for being the husband of a celebrity. How then can one lay credence that Samuel Soba or rather “the name” is really genuine and probably have a real history behind it?

The real identity of Samuel Soba can only be known and revealed by Keri Hilson herself, other than that, any information which you see on the internet attempting to paint a picture of Soba’s childhood is simply the craft of the writer in an attempt to give an identity to what is veraciously unknown.

This assumption should stand to be accepted until Samuel or his Wife gives a true account of who he really was and is. Whether they will do that or not is left to them. Probably they enjoy the fact that the salient aspects of his personality are not known. If that be the case, we should give it up to them because everyone has a right to privacy and no matter how they pursue it safely without harm to others and themselves, it should be respected.


5 Things You Didn’t Know About Keri Hilson’s Husband

However, since there is no traceable background information on Samuel Soba, here are five facts you should know about Keri Hilson’s husband. Albeit they might not be without some elements of suspicions.

1. Samuel Soba or Serge Ibaka

One of the striking things about the real identity of Samuel Soba is his similitude with Serge Ibaka. Has it occurred to you yet that the two guys look alike somehow? Perhaps not.

The picture on what can be rightfully termed the official Wikipedia page of Serge Ibaka the NBA player shows a picture of a Congolese-Spanish basketball player who plays for the Toronto Raptors.

Now take a closer look at the pictures above and see if you can tell each other apart.

Almost impossible to do so right? One of the things you didn’t know about Samuel Soba – Keri Hilson’s husband is that surprisingly and suspiciously, he looks just like Serge Ibaka whom she was reported to have dated briefly.

2. Social Media

Another fact you should be aware of is that Mr Soba doesn’t have any officially known social media account. So if you are currently following one or have just seen one you want to follow, it is probably a fake account so it is best you back off and stay safe. There is no need to follow a fake celebrity social media account.
