Bukayo Saka

Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka met Wizkid on Sunday night at the Emirates after the Gunners defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the Premier League.

The youngster, who has Nigerian roots, signed his autograph on a jersey as a gift to the Afrobeat star.

Saka scored Arsenal’s first goal on the night in the first half. A Gabriel Magalhaes own goal at the closing stage of the first half ensured Liverpool, who were missing Mohamed Salah to injury, had a lifeline.

However, Arsenal were the better side in the other half. Goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard sealed the victory for the hosts and ultimately blew the title race open.

The 22-year-old was born in Ealing, Greater London to Yoruba parents, Adenike and Yomi Saka, and was the younger of two children. His parents emigrated to London from Nigeria as economic migrants.
