    Kelechi 22 years I salute you myself today I am 12years old!

    • You have come now with your silly cynical comment on age. As much as we agree that a lot of Nigerian players lower there ages you cannot tar everyone with the same brush. You forget that Iheanacho, Awoniyi,Chidera Eze etc where products of the NFF U-13 & U-15 teams. I have even seen his picture in 2010 with the U-15 team when they went on tour in England and he couldn’t have been more than 14 in that picture.

      In about 3 years time you’ll be one of those who will claim that some players in the current U-15 that went to the Africa Youth Games earlier this year are overaged when they start playing in Europe, Na wa for people. Talking anyhow.

        Gbam! Everyone that knows Kelechi Iheanacho since his U-13 days already Knew he will definitely play for the SuperEagles in no time. They’ve got virtually nothing to say about him over the last month or so therefore, discrediting his age is the next order of the shallow minds. The likes of Ndidi, Simon Moses, Awaziem, Nwakalis, Awoniyi, Success all came from the NFF U-13 and U-15 developmental programs and Nigeria is reaping the rewards now by having a substantial amount of them progressing into the SuperEagles.

    If Kelechi says he is 22, that is what he is. Anyone who cannot prove otherwise should let him be.

    Happy birthday Kelechi. We are proud of you.

    Happy birthday Kelechi. Always think and believe that Millions and Millions of people around the World looks up to you as their role model and their hero. May all your wishes comes true . May almighty God continue shower His infinite Love on you. Amen.

    look up to who, baba speak for yourself not on our behalfs

    • Chima E Samuels 3 years ago

      Hahaha can’t stop laughing 

      • Chima, in a platform that permits and promotes anonymous contributions, you come here with what appears to be your real identity, yet you make statements that aren’t legally safe!
        What if 22 is Iheanacho’s real age and he chooses to sue to for defamation of character! You will say it wasn’t only you that he should also sue Bartorx!
        What you don’t know is that Bartorx is not as stupid as he makes out. He is nonetheless stupid.
        Even if you have reservations about Iheanacho’s age, posting your doubts on his birthday reveals very poor judgement on your part.
        You claim to be wealthy and wise but your words reveal that you are poor where it matters most (intellect).
        If you continue this way, all your wealth will be used paying legal bills after someone else chooses to teach you a lesson.
        A word is enough for the wise (or the stupid whichever the case may be).

          LMAO! Wealthy and wise my foot. At the end of the day their favorite line is “listen to your elders”. Since he started banging the goals and assists they’ve all fled into oblivion. only to crawl out like shallow frogs to question is age when they have no significant prove. What Kelechi has achieved at only 22 will take about 10 generations of theirs to achieve, that’s if they can ever get a sniff at it.

  • balorx 3 years ago

    i told you keep overhyping him…. iheanacho was included in top eleven worst players …. google it. he occupied the lwf position, what an achievement!

      Why is that people focus more on others weaknesses instead of their strength. Using your continuous negative utterances to witch hunt the progress of another. This is a very bad attitude to life. I personally frown at it.Words are powerful tools for crying out loud. Can’t we as a matter of good attitude to life, constantly pray and anticipate the best from people than referring to the past that is so passed. Come to think of it, the supposed publication you referred to, what made you think that the writer got the statistics correctly? For you to accept such without knowing how he or she gathered the statistics that resulted to such inference means you only intuitively believed the writer. I therefore suggest you use this type of belief system and wish him well after all this is what is invoke. My opinion though. If I sound offensively, please forgive 

      • Edoman of New Jersey, USA 3 years ago

        Thank you David. IMO, you have read my birth day greetings of Kelechi correctly. No one deserves to be insulted or abused on their birthday no matter what you think of him. His worst is far better than what millions and millions of his piers would ever wish for. Think about that.

        Thank you again David. You get it.

  • Oakfield 3 years ago

    If u feel kelechi is not 22, pls can u kindly hug a wet transformer,jump off a bridge or drink ota pia pia. Bunch of miserable haters……

  • Happy birthday to kelechi iheanacho God almight will give you strength and energy to fulfill your potentials, because since your exploit with Golden Eaglets i have been looking forward to see you becoming one the best player in the world of football, although my thought was that by this time you would have started rubbing shoulder with the likes of Gabriel Jesus and others but is not too late yet because you are just 22 years old, i pray that God almighty should see you through to greater height in the course of your football adventure, amin, God bless Nigeria.
