Asisat Oshoala Makes History: Clinches Record Sixth African Female Player of the Year Award

In a historic achievement, Asisat Oshoala, the talented forward for both the Super Falcons and Barcelona, has secured her position as the best female player on the African continent for an unprecedented sixth time.

The 29-year-old triumphed over strong contenders, South Africa’s Thembi Kgatlana and Zambia’s Barbara Banda, retaining her crown at the prestigious award ceremony held on Monday, December 11, 2023, in Marrakech, Morocco.

Oshoala’s stellar performance for Barcelona in the previous season undoubtedly contributed to her well-deserved recognition. As the top scorer for Barcelona, she netted an impressive 27 goals across all competitions, playing a pivotal role in her club’s conquest of a domestic double.

A trailblazer in Spanish women’s football, Oshoala made history by becoming the first female player to claim the highest goalscorer award in the Spanish top flight, securing a remarkable tally of 20 league goals.

Her impact extended beyond domestic success, as she played a key role in Barcelona’s retention of the Primera Division title and their triumph over Lyon to secure the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League.

With this sixth win, Asisat Oshoala has surpassed her Nigerian compatriot, Perpetua Nkwocha, etching her name in history as the individual with the most awards in the competition.

Oshoala’s achievements stand as a testament to her exceptional talent and contributions to women’s football on both the continental and global stage.
