Rogér Dupé: “Before modeling I was a professional soccer player in Sweden, but i got some problem with my knee and that´s why I had to quit it”
03 jan, 2014
My Name is Rogér Dupé. I was born in a small town caledl Västerås in Sweden, but my father coming from Ghana and my mother from Togo.
Before modeling I was a professional soccer player in Sweden, but i got some problem with my knee and that´s why I had to quit it. I was shopping in Stockholm and then 2 agents from Mikas Modeling Agency saw me.
I did my first shoot in a studio for Rodeo Magazine. I was so nervous and shy. The best thing about modeling must be to travel all over the world.
Posing to photographers: just be yourself
I like to ask advices from the photographers on how I can get closer to the inspiration of the shoot. Sometimes they say “just be yourself”, sometimes, something more specific, a technique maybe, so even if it’s a catalogue I like to hear what’s the photographer’s ways for that shoot to pass the idea.
Haha my preparation before posing is to be the Dj and put some good vibes on Hip hop or Reggae haha Yeaah .
I am not so comfortable to being naked in front of the camera, I think my mother would kill me haha:). But no it´s not my thing, it will depend on what´s the project is about and who will take the pictures.
The runway shows : feeling like a King!
I´ve walked for Corneliani, Tiger of Sweden , Acne , Sand , Andrea Pompilo , Philipp Plein and more…
Before I step in on the catwalk I am so nervous and shy but when I see everybody looking at me, i feel like a King that rule the whole show.
Male models x Female models: who rule?
I think male models have more exposure than they used to but it´s still women who rule the industry. Female models still get more money and attention.
So, I think we, the boys, are coming slowly who knows one day maybe we will rule the game.
My favorite male models are Tyson Beckford, Tony Ward, Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks.
Roger´s style: a fashionista?
For me the most part I keep it simple with hoodies and jeans , but when I´m going out I like to dress up and I will do it big
Imagine u a famous model suddenly surrounded by a huge crowd!
I would take it easy and just smile and be social.
Dating x Loving
I think time decides who you meet in life, your heart decides who you want in your life and your behavior decides who stays in your life, and the truth is: everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
Soccer and my favorite team is Ac Milan
If you could have a super power what would it be? Who’s your favorite superhero?
I would love to fly and be free like a bird and my fav superhero must be Batman
Atracting someone´s attention
I just walk to that person that attract me and try to talk.
Having fun, enjoying life
It must be on the pitch with some friends and just play soccer and good music.
Craziest thing in a summer time season
It must be to throw people in to the water haha
Fav body part
I am a sucker for nice eyes. because they can tell you so much things just if they look at you in different ways.
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those cool sexy moments :)
I always wear nice underwear so I would say CK boxers.
Fav singers and music
I have a lot of favorite artists, but I will say Bob Marley. But in my iPod I got a lot of Reggae and hip hop music.
If you weren’t a model you´d be…
I would like to success in a big company.
“I believe there are no limits in life. I believe you can achieve whatever you want, but you have to work hard and go for it!”
And thanks again World of Models, the pleasure was all mine
Big Hugs !
