2013 Glo CAF Awards

Yaya Toure deserves the African player of the year award. He was a better player than Mikel in 2013.

The other awards Nigeria(n) got are well deserved! They are no compensation for missing out on d most prestigious one.

Lagbaja showed he can still hold his own any day. His costume was wonderful and the performance was twodafu...lol.

What happened to Psquare? That was a below average performance, abi, na witch? The choice of song was bad though the organizers didnt help too as the sound production was not good enuf.

Guess Mafikizolo of the khona fame would have performed better than the artiste from South Africa.

Despite missing out on the flagship CAF Player of the Year and the Player of the Year (Based in Africa), the hosts returned four prizes, making them to country to have scooped the most honours.

Teenager Kelechi Iheanacho went home with the Most Promising Talent of the Year, Stephen Keshi was named Coach of the Year, Golden Eaglets (Nigeria Nu-17 team) as Youth National Team of the Year whilst the Supporters Club won the Fair Play prize.In addition to that, midfielder John Obi Mikel, who missed out on the topmost prize and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama were named in the Africa Finest XI with Keshi as the coach of the side.
