Ex-Real Madrid & Arsenal star, Emmanuel Adebayor stuns CAF award ceremony in complete Agbada dress

The 2022 CAF award ceremony was held yesterday in Rabat, Morocco which was the first of it's kind since 2019 when the last edition was held with Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala and Senegal's Sadio Mane winning the last award in the women's and men's categories.

The award ceremony yesterday organized by the Confederation of African Football was a repeat and replica of the last edition which saw the last two big winners retaining the crown as the best in African football.

It was such a historic and record breaking night for Nigeria's Asisat Oshoala who won her record fifth award as the first player in history to do so by surpassing Barcelona legend and Cameroonian international Samuel Eto'o, alongside compatriot Perpetua Nwokocha (4) on the list for the most award won in that category.

The award ceremony was graced by several people from all walk of life with some African legends of the game like Jay-Jay Okocha, Daniel Amokachi, El-Hadji Diouf, Samuel Eto'o, Emmanuel Adebayor among others also in attendance.

One of the side attraction was Togolese legend who is of Nigerian descent, Emmanuel Adebayor spotted rocking complete Agbada dress to grace the ceremony.

The former Arsenal and Real Madrid star got many people amazed as he could not hide his Nigerian heritage considering his appearance with the icing on the cake being the moment he was spotted speaking Yoruba language while having a conversation with the two Super Eagles legend, Okocha and Amokachi where he categorized himself as one of the Nigerians in the building.

It is then very good to know that despite claiming to be a Togolese by nationality, he has never for once forsake his root.
