Osimhen, Amusan Make List Of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Class of 2024


Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen and track icon Tobi Amusan have earned coveted spots on the 2024 Forbes Africa 30 under 30 list. Their inclusion underscores not only their athletic excellence, but also their integrity and positive influence within their communities, and beyond sports. As the only Nigerian athletes to grace this prestigious roster, Osimhen and Amusan stand as shining examples of the country’s athletic prowess on the global stage.

FORBES AFRICA’s selection process for the 30 under 30 list extends beyond the editorial team’s research. High-profile judges and independent subject-matter experts reportedly collaborated to ensure that only Africa’s most deserving candidates are chosen. Forbes Africa departed from a single adjudicator per category, and also sought the input of past list-makers, their 30 Under 30 alumni, to partake in the evaluation process.

The journey to success for both Osimhen and Amusan has been marked by dedication, resilience, and unwavering determination. Osimhen’s rise to becoming the face of Nigerian football star, and Amusan leading as the face of Nigerian athletics has captivated fans worldwide, and earned them acclaim and admiration.

Osimhen, 25, has seen his stocks rise to become the highest-paid footballer in Nigeria as of 2024, after signing a lucrative deal with Napoli in December 2023. Amusan, on the other hand, is the highest-paid Nigerian track-and-field athlete in the world. The 26-year-old has already inked a slew of endorsement deals amid her continued dominance in the sport.

Their achievements will certainly inspire a new generation of athletes to pursue their dreams relentlessly. Additionally, the inclusion of Osimhen and Amusan on the Forbes Africa 30 under 30 list serves as a reminder of the continent’s rich pool of talents, and its potential to keep on producing world-class athletes.
