Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa spends over N1.9bn to build sports complex and give 100 students scholarships

Nigerian football star Ahmed Musa is not only making waves on the pitch, the Al Nassr winger is also doing awesome outside of the field.

The former Leicester City forward is the only Super Eagles star to have recorded four goals in the FIFA World Cup championships.

His successes, however, transcend the field of play as the 27-year-old appears to have spent a staggering $2.759 million on scholarships 100 students at Skyline University.

This is just one of his numerous philanthropic gestures as the attacker shares food items and money to people in Plateau and Kano during Ramadan season.

As an influential sports personality, Musa spent a whopping $1.379 million to erect a sporting facility in the northern state while children and prisoners benefit from his food projects.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner also joined a host of others who provided palliatives for people during coronavirus lockdown earlier this year.

Musa broke into the country’s senior national team in 2010, and three years later, he joined the list of Nigerian stars who have lifted the AFCON title.

The forward got his career started in the Nigeria Professional Football League before joining the Dutch League side VVV Venlo in 2012.
