William Troost-Ekong

Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong, has disclosed that he derives inspiration listening to Fela and Grammy Award winner, Burna Boy.

Troost-Ekong, who has been listed in the 22-man squad released on Monday by Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde, said that he’s inspired by the messages in the Afrobeat legend, Fela and Burna Boy’s songs.

“His music inspires me, maybe like a modern-day Fela because he also has very strong messages in his music and I love what he stands for. He has a great connection with the UK and coming from Nigerian heritage, he’s someone I can relate to.
