“His music inspires me, maybe like a modern-day Fela because he also has very strong messages in his music and I love what he stands for. He has a great connection with the UK and coming from Nigerian heritage, he’s someone I can relate to.” The former Udinese defender said.

On Fela, who is regarded as the father and pioneer of Afrobeat, The Dutch-born defender said:

“I love what he stands for, his individualism and also the great music he makes, all of his songs, the messages, the life lessons, so anyone who hasn’t heard Fela’s music I would definitely recommend it.”
