Howdy Gooners, we are honoured to have on our Fanzone page Arsenal fan Enyinna Okike @HEOkike on Twitter right on the back of having SuperStar Nosa @nosaalways from Chocolate City Music grace our page for a few weeks now. You can still find all you need to know about Nosa and his love for Arsenal on the Fanzone section of the site and if you haven’t bought his album yet you should….
So Okike is our featured fan of the week and he has been supporting the club since 1999. In Nigeria, Arsenal fans who started supporting the club when Kanu joined the club are referred to as Kanu FC and they usually have the attitude of being the most critical of the clubs affairs currently…loool. Almost like how did I get stuck supporting these folks when most of my friends have moved with Oil money to Chelsea when Kanu left the club. Good thing is @HEOkike stayed true his real love for the club and is a proud Arsenal fan.
Ready to engage in any Arsenal related conversation you can chat him up but if you are anti-Giroud I would like to warn you as he is a staunch supporter of Giroud and has a lot of stats to back up his position. We didn’t ask him about why he loved Giroud but we asked him a few other questions and you can find his responses here..
