Iconic Moments

Dance with Me Oliver
Jay-Jay  Okocha most iconic moment, the Nigerian, Turkish number 10 from Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria
Eintracht Frankfurt fans witnessed one of the greatest sporting moments in the history of their club that day. After receiving the ball inside the box, Twice found Kahn charging at him. Instead of panicking, he coolly dribbled his way around the keeper, beat his markers, and shot at the goal. (Image: imgur.com)

Twice is Ace

The ball found the back of the net, and Mr. Kahn was left embarrassed by a tiny man from Nigeria. How dare he? Did he not know that it was the mighty Kahn in goal for Karlsruher SC? The audacity of this guy to score the goal of the year in the Bundesliga. This is unacceptable. (Image: imgur.com)

Let's Launder
Jay-Jay  Okocha most iconic moment, the Nigerian, Turkish number 10 from Enugu, Enugu State, Nigeria
He had to live up to the Nigerian stereotype, didn't he? A Scottish court charged him in an alleged money laundering case. He was allegedly involved with a gang of six others who indulged in malpractice. The legend made no plea and was granted bail. He's also being pursued in Nigeria for alleged tax evasion. We have learned that he has also failed to appear in court. It comes at a time when he's had his post-playing career sorted and was focusing on his leadership role within the NFF. This could seriously damage his chances if proven. With the idea of jail time also in the picture, it'd be best if he treats this with caution. (Image: imgur.com)

It's like the Maserati is giving him the stink eye for that all-blue ensemble. He likes big engines, doesn't he? A true Nigerian, indeed. (Image: imgur.com)

Given his legal troubles, it's highly unlikely that he's in Nigeria or the UK. The decor of the house looks tribal in some ways. (Image: imgur.com)
