Our wobbling and fumbling striker Yakubu Ayegbeni is now singing Redemption Song after redeeming himself and his image with a four-goal feast that has brought him back into the news for good reasons.
Four goals that tore Swansea into shreds. Four goals that put his name on the record book of Blackburn. Four goals that might rescue Blackburn Rovers from the pit of hell where they have fallen, threatened by relegation.
For some time now, I have been a torn in the flesh of Yakubu, monitoring his every faux pas and every goal missed in the EPL. Now, after watching his scintillating performance, scoring 4 goals against Swansea and turning the whole game into a Yak show, I have changed my mind about Yakubu Ayegbeni. Yakubu has won my heart.
From now on, he is no longer Nigeria’s World Cup villain but a new Yakubu who might as well be called Yakubu Go Won (Gowon) after the Nigerian war hero who declared a “no victory and no vanquish” scores after the Nigerian Civil War.
There is nothing like success. Everybody loves success. We rejoice with Yakubu. We only hope that this is the beginning of new things to come and not a mere flash in the pan. What Yakubu has proved with this is that he is still hot enough to find a place in this mediocre Super Eagles. More goals like that and Steve Keshi would be flying Yakubu down to Nigeria to be the arrowhead of his new striking force. Well done Yakubu. You are my hero of the week. Or maybe, it is still too early to judge. So, are you still Yakubu Go Miss or Yakubu Go Won?
