In her words, she says “It only made the victory more sweet …..CHILD OF THE CONTINENT. It’s a blessing to know how much lives I’ve touched and inspired across AFRICA in my young age. All love from this side”
She outruns her fellow colleagues, Ajara Nchout of Cameroon and Thembi Kgatlana of South Africa to win the award.
In one of the voting documents released by the Confederation of African Football, it was revealed that five Nigerians officials including four-time African Women’s of the year footballer, Perpetua Nkwocha failed to vote for Asisat Oshoala for the top price.
Although some Nigerians state it was her choice while others believed that she should have voted for her own.
