Since 2004 when the Confederation of African Football (CAF) change its format,
4 Nigerians have won the top scorer of the year making it the best in Sub Saharan Africa. Apart from Nigeria, only the duo of Ghanaian, Emmanuel Clottey and Mamadou Diallo of Senegal have their names in the top scorer's list. No other player from sub-Saharan Africa in the list again. The Ghanaian scored 12 goals to finish as the top scorer in the 2012 season when he was playing in Tunisia. The 12 goals he netted while playing for Esperance of Tunisia remains the second-highest goal in the history of the CAF Champions League. The Senegalese scored 10 goals in the 2004 season while playing for Pahang FA. The Nigerians are:
1. Stephen Worgu: he won the top scorer award when he netted 13 goals in the 2008 season. Then he was plying his trade with the Aba Elephant, Enyimba. The 13 goals remain the highest ever any player has scored in a season in the history of the CAF competition.
2. Michael Eneramo: he scored 8 goals in the colour of Esperance of Tunisia in the 2010 season. It was the highest and he won the top scorer that year.
3. Mfon Udoh: he remains the only Nigerian that outscored others in both the domestic league in Nigeria and the CAF competition. In the 2014 season in Nigeria, he scored 23 goals in the Nigerian league making him the topmost scorer. The record remains to date. In 2016, he made the record when he scored 9 goals to outsource other players in Africa. This he did all in the colour of the blues, Enyimba Football Club of Aba.
