People always want to be close to their football idols but be that as it may it will be difficult to walk up to their houses and get a cup of coffee of eat lunch but one way fans have been able to relate with their football superstars in recent time has been through social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc.
Here we’ll take a look at some of Nigeria’s most amiable social media stars. Of course we know some aren’t handled by them but we’ll take a look at how many times they post and how often they reply to fans.
Here are your top 5 Nigerian football stars on social media.
John Ogu: The Hapoel Be’er Sheva of Israel combative midfielder is definitely number one on our list due to his engaging presence on Twitter. It is difficult for the well built-Spartan like star not to post one thing or the other on the app at least three times a week. The man with the well cultured left foot might not have the millions of followers but of course he is loyal to his fans. And we think he handles his account himself. Ogu has 113k followers.
Ogenyi Onazi: With over 127k followers on Twitter Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi remains one of the friendliest Super Eagles players of social media. Hilarious Onazi is fond of posting post match reactions and of course pictures of himself chilling with friends. Mostly Nigerian comedians. You should check out his instagram page for more crazy pictures and savage write-ups.
Ahmed Musa: It doesn’t matter where you find Ahmed Musa he is always active. With over 500k Instagram followers and about 164k followers on Twitter the former Leicester City man sure has a way to get closer to his fans. He is fond of posting club pictures and videos but hey!!! That’s how we like it. Musa is at least sure to post 10 times in a month on twitter.
Shehu Abdullahi: This former Sokoto United and Kano Pillars defender is also very active and friendly on twitter. He is one of the players that easily trend on twitter for his performance. You can ask a question and expect to get a reply. Shehu will always give you updates of his club performance, win or not. He needs a comic side to him. Always too serious. You can add to his growing 25k twitter community by following him @officialShehu.
Leon Balogun: The Brighton and Hove Albion defender not too long ago tweeted “Jollof rice is life” and got some of the craziest reaction including the official twitter handle of premier League USA. A member of the Super Eagles Oyinbo wall Leon is above average on social media. Another thing the Germany born player knows how to do is retweeting. You can follow him on twitter @LeonBalogun. Balogun has over 86.5k followers on twitter.
Extra!!! Kenneth Omeruo: With over 183k followers on Instagram and 86k followers on twitter you should know where to go if you need to see the latest on Super Eagles and Leganes of Spain defender Keneth Omeruo. Omeruo is more active and interactive on twitter need to say that he sparingly writes on the most savage app. Twitter.
