The Austrian national was born to George Alaba, an Austrian musician and his wife Gina Alaba. Gina is from the Philippines and emigrated to work as a nurse while his father is a prince from Ogere, Nigeria (he is a Yoruba Nigerian). He is also a rapper and works as a DJ. In 1984, George Alaba began studying in Vienna and after learning German for a few semesters, his interest in economics brought him to the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
He later dropped out to focus on his career as a musician. He began as a DJ in the African Club in front of an international audience. His first CD was not a success. He was granted Austrian citizenship in the mid-90s and this led to his calling to the army. He served as the first dark-skinned guard soldier and this drew a lot of great media attention.
He met his wife, Gina, a Philippine- born nurse in 1988 and married her in 1996. Together, they are the parents of Rose May Alaba, who gained a place in the ” Popstars Girl Group BFF ” on the talent show “Popstars Mission Austria” of the transmitter Puls 4 and also works as a model, and the football player David Alaba.
He found his musical partner Petra Suk, in 1997 with whom he appeared as a duo Two in One. Their breakthrough came with the “Indian Song”, which ended up in second place on the Austrian charts. After seven years of cooperation ended a patent dispute over the band’s name, whose fighting out would have been beyond their financial possibilities, their careers.
Alaba turned back to his profession as a DJ, this time in the “Gogobar Beverly Hills” in the center of Vienna. He gave up this job in favor of his children, whom he now supports in their careers.

Alaba may be out weeks with hamstring tear
Adopted from: bavarianfootballworks.com
Published: 6th October 2018
David Alaba may have suffered a hamstring tear early into the second half of Bayern Munich’s match against Gladbach after he went down with a non-contact injury.
An official diagnosis remains to be made, but head coach Niko Kovac gave the media ominous tidings after the match. Concerning Alaba’s injury, Kovac told the media (AZ), “It could be a muscle tear, given how he described it to me.” Such an injury would sideline Alaba, who has been among the best, most consistent performers this season, even beyond the international break. “We have no outside-back. Now exactly what I feared has happened. That happens when you’re tired,” Kovac concluded.
