Another Nigerian, Etebo Oghenekaro emerged the Most Promising Talent of the Year after his five goals at the CAF U-23 Africa Cup of Nations helped Nigeria’s Dream Team VI to win the tournament which served as qualification for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke lost out to Herve Renard in the Coach of the Year category. Renard led the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire to win the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

Cote d’Ivoire emerged the National Team of the Year having won the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 23 years and already in the final round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Tanzanian striker Mbwana Samatta was adjudged the Africa Player of the Year based in Africa. The forward scored seven goals for his club TP Mazembe of Congo DR as they lifted the CAF Champions League for a record fifth time.
