What Burna Boy Did When He Was Asked To Choose Who’s A Better Legend Between Kanu or Okocha

Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy refused to reveal his choice after he was asked to choose who was a better footballer between Super Eagles legends, Kanu Nwankwo and Austin Jay Jay Okocha.
It happened after his performance at the Champions League final kickoff show on Saturday night.
The star was seen having a chat with some football legends on CBS Sports shortly after the game.
He was asked to choose who was the better player between Kanu and Okocha by Arsenal and France legend, Thierry Henry.
“I have one for you, you go Kanu or Okocha? Henry asked.
Burna Boy responded: “Don’t do this to me, man. No, I can’t do this.
“This is treachery. It is treason. I can get hanged for it.”
However, after being prodded further, Burna Boy obliged to whisper his choice to Henry.
Former England international, Micah Richards claimed he heard Okocha.
But Henry refused to announce who Burna picked, saying “I will respect this one.”
Burna Boy told Micah that he doesn’t know who he picked.

I Would Have Worth €150m Now – Okocha

Football legend, Austin Okocha has revealed what he would have worth in today’s transfer window.
According to him, he would be worth around €150m.
Okocha joined Fenerbahçe from Eintracht Frankfurt in 1996 in a deal believed tobe around £1m after the German outfits were relegated from topflight football.
The Nigerian dazzled during his two years with the Turkish club and an impressive performance at the 1998 FIFA World Cup was enough to convince French giants, Paris Saint Germain, to pay an African transfer record fee of £14m to lure the player to France.
In an interview with hurriyet, Okocha believed he would have cost around €150m going by the current transfer market.
“Maybe 1 billion should have been paid for me,” he said.
“They paid £106m for their defensive midfielder Chelsea. To a player from Portugal. I would have cost around €150m. My assists, dribbles… World football started to pay a lot of money. Such would be the numbers of players of this quality.”
The 49-year-old also expressed his sadness at leaving Fenerbahçe, where he was loved by the fans.
He added, “It was a really difficult decision. I left very sadly. I was very happy in Fenerbahçe. Moreover, I married my wife in Turkey. My children were about to be born.
“When I went to the World Cup, I had no such thing in mind. After the matches in the World Cup, an offer came from PSG. Aziz Yildirim was the president. He didn’t want to send me. He didn’t even interview the PSG Club. This process has been very difficult. Despite my sadness, when such an offer came, I wanted to make money for Fenerbahçe.”
