Born into a Christian family more fifty years ago, Prophet Ilori attended Ladilack Primary School and Saint Finbaars College, known for nurturing notable soccer talents. His journey to become a professional footballer led him across Africa transversing the Sahara desert through Niger republic and Libya.

Many black Africans were killed and this forced his return to Nigeria, where he found a new path.

This is the genesis of the birth of the now famous "Energetic Health and  Fitness Club" that has distinguished itself, endured, evolved and survived diverse challenges.

 Thereafter another club was also established on the Island in Ikoyi Lagos where he instructed cream-de-la-cream of Lagos high society residing in the Dolphin/Osborne estate axis of the Island. His association with this class of people bolstered his confidence, gained him respect amongst his peers and inspired him to work harder .His educational journey continued at the Nigerian Institute of Sports, and later at the University of Lagos, where he studied Physical and Health Education. His expertise in exercise techniques gained him recognition and respect within the academic and professional community.

Coach Victor’s spiritual calling led him to the Nehemia Institute Bible  Theology, culminating in the establishment of the Christ Consciousness Church in his childhood neighborhood of Makoko, Lagos. With a mission to serve God differently through proactive and innovative engagements. His dual focus on physical and spiritual well-being positions him as a transformative figure in Nigerian society, especially among the youth and young at heart

During the award ceremony held at the Energetic Health and  Fitness Club, the Convener of the awarding outfit,  Amb Otunba Oladipo Aberuagba praised Coach Victor for his unique life path and encouraged him to continue striving for excellence.
