If you’re like me and could use an occasional dose of inspiration to keep your fitness on track, look no further than Najjah Calibur, an award-winning international host for FIFA, and international recording artist who once toured with the Black Eyed Peas. Calibur is an avid sports enthusiast who knows the value of staying fit and how that applies to everything he does. The Toronto based entertainer shares in our Q&A his previous experience as an International host at the World Cup in Qatar and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
Q: Tell us your role as the FIFA International host at the World Cup in Qatar?
A: Well first of all the FIFA World Cup was scintillating! What an experience. I had the best job in the world as the host! I was part of an infotainment team that had to deliver the pre-match and halftime shows for all of the games including that explosive final. I had the privilege to be the head of the culmination of all the back-end work and planning at (those) sold out stadiums. We plan(ned) out live hits in the crowd that revolved around the teams, the history of soccer, games or comedic pieces and sponsors/advertisers all while keeping the energy at full tilt!
