Meet Ahmed Musa: Nigerian Super Eagles Star and Philanthropist

Leading the Super Eagles in their quest for the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria’s forward Ahmed Musa has been an inspiration to many young Muslims with his charity works and projects launched to help his people.

Musa, who currently plays for the national team and the Saudi club “Al-Nassr”, is one of the most professional footballers in the country.

He became the first Nigerian to score more than once in a FIFA World Cup match, after scoring twice against Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The Nigerian superstar started his football career in the streets when he had nothing but a ball and some friends who shared his love and passion for football.

That’s why Musa, while advancing in his career from one team to another, he is also making sure to help those in need in his country, either by promoting sports among Nigerians, supporting youth, and donating food items to the needy.

He even started a charity foundation named “Ahmed Musa Foundation” through which he helped those in need. For example in 2018, Musa set 40 prisoners free by paying their debts. In Ramadan 1439, the Super Eagles player showed love to his people in Kano, distributing food items and rice bags to them.

In the mixed society we live today, we went looking for the ideal platform for Muslims. And of course, we didn’t find it. So we made one ourselves.
