He, however lamented that his dream of making it through the popular street anthem never materialised because he was never recognised by the Super Eagle's team or the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).

When asked if he made any efforts to contact the NFF, he said he contacted the marketing manager in 2002 but was threatened with a lawsuit for using the Super Eagle's brand for a song without permission.

Milado said he gave up and ultimately went back to the streets where he now does real estate, hoping to make it from there.

'Super Eagles Carry Go' is a popular street anthem used to celebrate football victories, and even the Super Eagles often vibe to the song in their camps.
