Thierry Henry crowned Igwe of football in Nigeria

Former Arsenal football legend and France International , Thierry Henry, was on Sunday crowned the ‘Igwe of football’ at an event in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Henry, who was clad in the attire of an Igbo chief, was unveiled as an ambassador for the Made of Black campaign.

The retired footballer also partook in the cooking of jollof rice.

Henry later recognised and praised a one-legged footballer whom he described as “the real Igwe”.

The one-legged footballer told Henry that despite losing his leg, he relocated to Lagos and still managed to achieve his dream of playing football.

The Frenchman is in Nigeria for ‘Watch a Match with Thierry Henry’, an event put together by Guinness Fanzone.
