An exhibition game was played as the occasion also allowed the player to reunite with old-time friends and colleagues and other top celebrities in the region, Punch reports.

The former CSKA Moscow forward shared photos of the event on his social media handles and thanked all those present.

"Thank you to everyone who turned out for our day of fun with some of your favorites. It was an amazing turnout and I'm confident everyone had fun.
"Your energy and enthusiasm made the event truly special. I am also grateful to all the celebrities that took time out of their busy schedule to make it happen.
"We loved seeing you hang out with your favourites and create amazing memories together. Your support means the world to us, and we couldn't have done it without you. Let's keep the good vibes going and continue to make unforgettable moments together."

Musa attracts interest from Saudi, Russia

Sports Brief earlier reported that Musa is reportedly attracting interest from Saudi Pro League and Russian Premier League clubs about transfers.

Finidi George did not call up the former Kano Pillars forward for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and the Benin Republic.

The former Al-Nassr star also reportedly terminated his contract with Sivasspor after alleging the Turkish Super Lig side failed to pay his wages.
