To win the African Footballer of the Year Award, Victor Osimhen, a top player for Napoli and a Nigerian international, defeated others like Mohammed Salah and Achraf Hakimi.

Since 1999, no Nigerian football player has won CAF Player of the Year, including Victor Osimhen, who was only a few months old when Super Eagles hero Nwankwo Kanu took home the trophy.

The 24-year-old striker’s heroics with Napoli during the previous season are well-known, but his accomplishments should continue to be highlighted because of their magnitude.

After the legendary Diego Armando Maradona had lived in Naples, Osimhen guided Napoli to their first Serie A championship in thirty-three years.
