The Seikwa Traditional Area are all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed about youngster Evelyn Badu who scooped two top awards at the 2022 CAF Awards staged in Rabat, Morocco.
Badu, 19, beat off competition from Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Andile Dlamini and South Africa defender Bambanani Mbanie to win the CAF Inter-Club Player of the Year award.
The Norway-based midfielder again beat her former teammate Doris Boaduwaa and Morocco’s Yasmine Zouhir to win the Young Player of the Year award.
Badu was the top scorer in the maiden edition of the CAF Women’s Champions League and was also named player of the tournament.
The statement reads: “The chiefs and people of Seikwa Traditional Area headed by Osabarima Debra Agyei II, Paramount Chief of the Seikwa Traditional Area wish to congratulate the daughter of the land Evelyn Badu for bagging two awards in the just-ended CAF Awards. She won the Women’s Young Player of the Year award and the CAF Inter-Club Player of the Year award. We are proud to have a rising star like her and we wish her more glories in the future.”
Evelyn is a younger sibling of retired Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu who was capped 78 times by Ghana’s senior national team.
