Among the lined-up activities for the bash included a charity game, which was played at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena.

All former footballers featured in a 5-aside game at the arena, showing off skills to the delight of a handful of fans inside the stadium, Tooxclusive reports.

Footage shows the moment Okocha caught the ‘dance fever’ as Adebayor, who was seated beside the birthday boy, grooved to a song.

Raising his hand in a typical manner while seated on the bench, the former Arsenal forward could be seen dancing, and Okocha had to give it a try as well.

It was a blissful celebration for Nigeria’s mercurial midfielder who left indelible footprints in the football world.

Balde names Okocha as best dribbler

Meanwhile, Barcelona star Alejandro Balde has chosen Super Eagles legend Austin Jay Jay Okocha as the best dribbler while picking his ultimate team.

The Spanish international is one of the rising stars in Barcelona and also the La Liga. He made his debut for the Catalans in the 2021-22 season and became a regular member of the starting line-up in the 2022-23 season.

The 19-year-old defender is regarded as one of the best left-backs in Europe due to his performance for the Blaugranas.

Iwobi hails ‘uncle’ Okocha

Sports Brief earlier reported that Alex Iwobi has claimed that he wants to create Premier League memories like his legendary uncle, Austin Jay Jay Okocha.

The former Arsenal forward joined the Cottagers from Everton for an undisclosed fee this summer on transfer deadline day.

Iwobi joined fellow Nigerian international Calvin Bassey at Craven Cottage, with the former joining the London side this summer from Eredivisie side Ajax.
