Breaking: From Italy, Private jet flies Victor Osimhen to Morocco ahead of 2023 CAF awards [VIDEO]

Nigerian international Victor Osimhen has arrived in Marrakech, Morocco, hours before the 2023 CAF Awards.

The Napoli Italy striker, who is among the three-man shortlist for the leading award in the men’s category, flew in directly from his Italy base in a private jet.

Osimhen has been tipped to win the prestigious prize but faces strong contention from Achraf Hakimi of Morocco and Egypt’s Mohamed Salah.

The 24-year-old had a remarkable 2022/2023 season, helping Napoli win the Serie A title for the first time after over three decades.

He scored 26 league goals and 31 in all competitions to win the Golden Boot and emerge the Serie A Player of the Season.

Osimhen also smashed several records, including the longstanding one by Liberia’s George Weah, to become the African with the most goals in the Italian topflight.

On the other hand, Hakimi played a crucial role as Morocco became the first African team to reach the semi-final of a FIFA World Cup, achieving such a feat in Qatar.

The 25-year-old also helped Paris Saint-Germain win the Ligue 1 title during the season.

Salah also had a stellar season for Liverpool as the Egyptian broke the thirty-goal barrier for the third season running, a highlight being a seven-minute hat trick away to Rangers in the Champions League.
