Celebrity Brand Ambassador and former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, was the cynosure of all eyes at Ijaiye-Ojokoro, a Lagos suburb, on Sunday.
It was a surprise for the community as the former Nigerian star came unannounced to shoot an advert/documentary
and featured in an exhibition match.
Football crazy fans, young and old came out in their numbers to catch a glimpse of the football legend.
Okocha played in a five-aside exhibition match with youngsters in the neighbourhood and also engaged another set in drill “to hit the upright.”
It’s an experience the kids will cherish for a long time to come.
