Muhoroni Youth forward Abbas Akinyemi

Any fan of Kenyan football would automatically recognize Abbas Akinyemi, the player who has been influential in uplifting Muhoroni Youth FC.

As captain of the club, the 25 year old Nigerian has chaperoned Muhoroni to most of their wins, even forming a power duo with team member Wellington Ochieng.

Catch Abbas in action as the on-form Muhoroni Youth battles third placed Sofapaka on Saturday, 22 August at 15:00 on SuperSport (SS9E).

Abbas who first joined KPL in 2010 as a Sofapaka forward has since played for teams like Rangers, Ligi Ndogo and also Busha FC in Ukraine before moving to his current club Muhoroni Youth.

But who is this man Abbas when he is not dribbling the ball on the pitch? This is a question he was more than happy to answer when DStv caught up with him recently.

For a Nigerian, you'd be surprised to know what his favourite food is. Watch the video below to know more about this budding footballer.
