Nollywood star Gideon Okeke has voiced disapproval over Victor Osimhen’s recent controversy with former Nigerian footballer Finidi George.


This dispute arose when George suggested Osimhen feigned an injury to skip crucial World Cup qualifiers, prompting a sharp denial from the Napoli forward.

Okeke, a staunch supporter of the Super Eagles, criticized Osimhen’s response as inappropriate.

He expressed discomfort witnessing the footballer’s outburst, highlighting the cyclical nature of life and suggesting Osimhen should choose his words carefully.

In his critique, Okeke acknowledged his allegiance to the Nigerian national team but suggested Osimhen’s reaction missed the mark.

These debates serve as a reminder of the scrutiny faced by athletes in the public eye, both for their performance on the field and their responses off it.
