Victor Osimhen secured the 2023 African Footballer of the Year title, marking a double triumph for Nigeria at the Caf awards in Marrakesh.

The Napoli player outshone Mohamed Salah and Achraf Hakimi, becoming the first Nigerian since Nwankwo Kanu in 1999 to claim this prestigious honor.

In a parallel success, Asisat Oshoala, the Barcelona star, clinched her sixth women’s award, maintaining Nigeria’s dominance.

Winners are determined by a panel comprising Caf’s technical committee, African media professionals, and input from head coaches, captains, and clubs in Caf’s continental competitions.
