Darek Chauvin convicted for killing George Floyd
Nigeria and Lille's prolific striker has eventually infected his teammates with his zanku dance trademark celebration.
In the match played against Lyon on Sunday night, Oshimen failed to put his name on the score sheet; but regardless, his zanku dance was still felt in the Stade Pierre Mauroy, the home ground to Lille Football Club.
The zanku dance which appears to be quite hilarious was displayed by at least eight Lille players after they defeated Lyon by a 1-0 scoreline in a Ligue 1 match on Sunday.
It was the French player, Loic Remy who gave Lille the maximum points after he scored the only goal to comfortably put Christophe Galtier's side on the fourth position in the French League. Lille now has six wins from their last seven league matches.
From the turnout of events in Stade Pierre Mauroy, It's quite clear that Osimhen is having a positive influence on his teammates this season. This is clearly shown in the togetherness of their hilarious zanku celebration. The celebration is performed by displaying some legworks before kicking into the atmosphere.
Osimhen also celebrated the zanku dance after scoring back to back goals in an African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Seychelles and Benin Republic respectively.
Recall that the Zanku dance which means - 'Zlatan Abeg No Kill Us' was originated by Zlatan Ibile, an indigenous Nigerian rapper who made a name for himself through rhymes and punchline lyrics from his mother tongue.
Zlatan Ibile came into limelight in the Nigerian music industry after he featured in a song titled 'Able God by Chinko Ekun.

The zanku dance is very popular in Nigeria and has become the signature celebration for many Nigerian footballers in recent years.
Nigeria faces Sierra Leone later this month. We hope Oshimen scores again so we can enjoy the zanku celebration.
