Super striker inducted into Super Eagles, sings stunning music

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi was inducted into the Super Eagles ahead of their World Cup qualifying encounter against the Central Africa Republic at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

The induction was done on Wednesday night, October 6, at the Eko Hotel where Taiwo Awoniyi was called out by the Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa for him to sing for his teammates.

Super Eagles players were actually expecting Taiwo Awoniyi to sing a song they would all join him in, but the former Liverpool star decided to follow his mind according to the video posted by the Super Eagles.

Taiwo Awoniyi sang the music of popular Nigerian singer Nathaniel Bassey titled 'Call On Me', but it appeared boring to his Super Eagles teammates as they were unable to flow with him.
