Nigerian musician Flavour thrills Enugu fans as Rangers close-in on NPFL title win

Nigerian music sensation Flavour thrilled fans in Enugu as Rangers International closed in a Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) title triumph with a 3-0 win over Bayelsa United on Sunday.

After a month-long break, Rangers returned to the Nigerian Premier Football League (NPFL) in style, securing a commanding 3-0 victory over Bayelsa United. This win further solidified their lead at the top of the NPFL standings.

On the pitch, Godwin Obaje was the standout performer, scoring a brace to take his season tally to 11 goals. He opened the scoring in the 41st minute, giving Rangers a crucial lead before halftime.

Obaje doubled the advantage just after the hour mark before Chiedozie Okorie added the third goal just two minutes later, sealing a comfortable 3-0 victory for the Flying Antelopes.

Highlife star Flavour entertained the home fans with a special halftime performance at the Cathedral in Enugu, adding to the celebratory atmosphere. His presence off the pitch provided a significant morale boost to the fans and the team, creating a memorable experience for all in attendance.

The win extends Rangers International’s lead at the top of the NPFL standings, opening up a four-point gap. They are now well-positioned in their quest for their first league title since 2016.

Enyimba kept the pressure on the league leaders with a narrow 1-0 victory over local rivals Abia Warriors, with Bernard Ovoke scoring the decisive goal for the Peoples Elephant.

Rangers International celebrated their victory on social media, reinforcing their dominant position in the league:
