That one time Okocha tried to be a musician


My friend Udeme is a great man, when he was young his teacher asked him where he would like to work. “Air” he said. And he was true to his dream.

Remember that line from a popular ad from a while back?

But how many people is this true for. How many dream of one thing while they were younger and their dreams stayed the same?

For one, there’s only so much the mind can process at a younger age, so you hear kids want to be Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Footballers and Programmers- you say? But reality set in.

How about this, Nigerian football legend, Jay Jay Okocha, had dreams beyond football also.

A video resurface showing Jay-Jay singing. The Eurodance track is titled “I I Am Am JayJay” ( more like I’m so good I was named twice) and on the song he talks about, guess what, football.

The track was released under EMI records in 1994. Just when Okocha was signed to Eintracht Frankfurt.

EMI sure was banking on Okocha’s popularity among Frankfurt fans.
