Onuachu’s future remains in doubt and Genk believe they have the chance of making huge fortune from the sale of the goal-poacher as they continue to search for replacements.

Both stars in their respective trade have continued to put the Ajegunle community famously referred to as 'AJ City' on the world map.

Ajegunle is notable as an area with a huge breed of talents in different walks of life and now, Daddy Showkey has ‘reunited’ with his homeboy.
