Okiki Afolabi has been voted player of the year for the 2017/18 season in the Ethiopian Premier League.

Afolabi’s club, Jimma Aba Jiffar, were crowned champions of the Ethiopian league on Tuesday after their 5-0 rout of Adama Ketema.

The win took them above St George on goal difference, in their maiden season in the top flight.

Afolabi, a former Shooting Stars and Sunshine Stars attacker, struck 23 goals to lead his team to the championship. The Nigerian also finished as top scorer of the league.

Okiki described his season as “incredible,” adding that his club was underestimated at the start of the season.

“It was an incredible season for me. I won the league title with Jimma Aba Jiffar, emerged as top scorer and topped it up with best player award. I’m so happy with these achievements,” Okiki told TheCable.

“No one gave us the chance to topple the big guns in the league but we knew what we wanted and reached our objectives.

On his next destination, the striker said, “God knows best, I think it’s time to take my talents to Europe. Fingers crossed. I’m studying the offers I have”.
