I just knew that I am a fan of the Super Eagles and that I am passionate about all things Nigerian. I didn't really know why. But this passion was always there and it still is today.
Somehow I got into a conversation with Suya about Nigerian music, I don't remember the exact occasion, he sent me a "Nigerian drum mix" pretty suddenly. In German language of course. I still have the CD to this day and it reminds me of him.
The remarkable about Suya, among other things, I know how skillfully he was able to use words and how playfully he could "fight" his adversary friends, was how cosmopolitan he was.
I know this word is used very fashionably these days.
But Suya was Nigerian, German and citizen of the world at the same time.
As a seventeen year old, of course, I wasn't aware of that. But I still remember when I called him a halfcast in my naivete and in view of my lack of language skills. He corrected me gently and kindly and said, "It's called bi-racial". To this day I remember that correction. And I'll never call a "bi-racial" person halfcast again.
Initially, Suya welcomed me to the forum. He was a confidante because he knew the German language. And at the same time he opened the door to a strange world that I wanted to conquer.
In the beginning I didn't want to admit that I am a German who loves Nigeria because I thought that then I would no longer be able to belong to the community (Cyber ​​Eagles used to be a strong community). But Suya showed me with his strong self-confidence that identity is a question of belief.

Rest In Peace Suya
Very Nice. :clap: :clap:

I am very saddened to hear of Suya's passing. I am one of the pioneers from around 2000 or so and enjoyed our early Naija - Cam - Ghana rivalry. Suya was definitely one of the more reasonable fans.

May his soul rest in peace.

In Africa, it's never too late.

Contrary to the very public spats that went on between Mon General and forum at large when I first joined this forum, SUYA as an Administrator was a very good friend privately and I spoke to him on several occasions. May his soul RIP.
