Kanu with wife Amara

Former Nigeria World Cup star Nwankwo Kanu is 42 today and his beautiful wife, Amarachi, took to her Instagram page to celebrate the legend.

The former Super Eagles captain and Arsenal forward turned 42 on Wednesday, August 1, with his wife, Amara, recalling their 14-year union.

“Oh look (at) what 1st August brought us. Happy birthday to you champ @kingkanu4. You are loved”, she wrote on her Instagram page Wednesday.

Similarly, Kanu posted on his Tweeter handle, @papilokanu account, where he equally wished himself a happy birth day:  “I thank God. Happy birthday to me.”

Kanu is the most celebrated Nigerian player, winning the CAF African Player if the Year twice.

The former UEFA Champions League winner with Ajax and former Inter Milan forward usually celebrates his birth day with kids and beneficiaries of his (Kanu) Heart Foundation (KHF).

In 1996, Papilo led the Nigeria U23s to win the gold soccer medal in that year’s summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.

Kanu won several Major trophies in a glittering career with Arsenal.
