Asisat Oshoala Celebrated By FIFA On 29th Birthday | Fab.ng

FIFA has sent its best wishes for a happy 29th birthday to Asisat Oshoala, the well-known Super Falcons player. Referred to as “Agba Baller”. Asisat is a well-known personality in women’s football who has won multiple awards over her career. Born October 9, 1994, in Ikorodu, Lagos, Asisat Oshoala is a native of that area. She has become widely recognized in Nigeria and throughout the world because of her remarkable football career and accomplishments.

Her outstanding performance at the 2023 Women’s World Cup is one of her career’s major turning points. Oshoala created history during this competition by being the first player from Nigeria to score in three separate FIFA Women’s World Cups. She achieved this milestone by scoring a goal against Australia after entering the game off the bench. She has previously scored one goal in each of the editions between 2015 and 2019.

Asisat Oshoala‘s accomplishments extend beyond the playing field. She has also received praise for her outstanding contributions to the game. Oshoala achieved the incredible achievement of receiving nominations for the coveted Women’s Ballon d’Or award twice in a row in 2023. Her inclusion on the esteemed list was her second consecutive nomination. Given her incredible 2023 season, in which she helped Barcelona win both the league and the Champions League and guided the Super Falcons to the World Cup Round of 16, all while going undefeated in regular play, her award was well-earned.

Asisat Oshoala is still an inspirational figure on the football pitch despite her incredible career. Her contributions to women’s football are well acknowledged, and her skill and passion are highly recognized. Asisat Oshoala turned 29, and FIFA, the global football governing body, celebrated her birthday and honoured her as one of the most decorated African women’s football players. Her recognition in the annals of football history is well-earned due to her contributions to the game.

Fireboy On How He Got Ed Sheeran On 'Peru' remix | Fab.ng

Nigerian music star Fireboy DML recently shared a fascinating story about his hit collaboration with global music sensation Ed Sheeran on the remix of Fireboy’s 2021 chart-topping single, “Peru.”

In a recent interview with Billboard News, the 28-year-old singer revealed that the collaboration came about after a friend of Ed Sheeran’s introduced the song to the British superstar. Fireboy revealed that Ed Sheeran himself reached out to him, expressing his interest in the song after a friend shared it with him.

Fireboy further disclosed that prior to this remarkable collaboration, he had expressed his fervent desire for a “global hit” that would significantly transform his life path.

“I remember praying for a song that would breakthrough on a global scale, something that would truly change my life forever,” Fireboy said, reflecting on the period before the collaboration.

“At the time, ‘Essence’ was enjoying significant popularity, and this inspired me to aim for even greater achievements. I would like to contribute to my genre by having a song that cuts across the whole world and changes my life forever.” he added.

“God gave me ‘Peru’, so the song blew up, amazing record. You know when a song blows up and it becomes this annoying record you hear everywhere in Africa, in Nigeria, especially in Lagos.

“It needed something special so it came in the form of the collaboration with Ed Sheeran. I was in the studio that day I remember when I got the call from Mr Kareem, he works with my label and he was like, guess what? Ed Sheeran is going to be on your record.

“Check your DM, I think he has sent you a DM. He has recorded the verse, everything is ready and I was like, what? But apparently, Jamal Edwards sent the song to Ed Sheeran.

“So after I got the call, I checked my messages on Instagram, and he had sent me a DM together with a voice note, and when I listened to verse, I was like this verse is fire.”

And that is how the chart-topping Peru Remix came about.

Sportswear giant Adidas is teaming up with the estate of the legendary reggae musician Bob Marley to release a special edition of their classic SL 72 running shoe. This exciting collaboration is expected to launch as part of Adidas’ Summer 2024 collection, according to information discovered by Complex magazine.

While Adidas has yet to officially confirm the release, whispers of the collaboration have been swirling. Zuri Marley, granddaughter of the reggae icon, even shared a glimpse of the sneakers on her TikTok account recently.

The highly anticipated Bob Marley x Adidas SL 72 (identified by style code JP5171) features a sleek black upper adorned with vibrant green and wine-coloured accents on the sole. It proudly displays Bob Marley’s image and name on the tongue and sock liner, while his signature is elegantly embossed in gold on the heel. This unique design promises to be a must-have for fans of both the iconic musician and classic footwear.

Adidas has a rich history of incorporating Bob Marley’s iconic style into its designs. However, the upcoming SL 72 marks the first official sneaker collaboration between the brand and the reggae legend’s estate. Marley, a known fan of the brand, was often photographed wearing Adidas apparel and footwear, including the SL 72 model. Previous projects hinting at this connection include the 2008 Adidas Pro Model, released in partnership with Marley’s record label, Tuff Gong. Further collaborations have emerged alongside the recent resurgence of interest in Marley, sparked by the film “Bob Marley: One Love,” including Jamaica-themed Adidas projects and a dedicated Bob Marley collection by designer Jerry Lorenzo’s Fear of God Athletics line, produced in conjunction with Adidas.
