Loads of reactions have trailed the release of the manner in which delegates voted for the best players in the African continent for 2019 CAF awards.
Specifically, the apparent snub of Asisat Oshoala by Nigerian voters including fellow Super Falcons footballer, Perpetua Nwokocha.
Although Asisat Oshoala went ahead to emerge as the best female African footballer of the year, Nigerians have taken to social media to berate the Nigerian voters who snubbed her.
Below are some of the reactions by Nigerians:
Perpetual just put Oshoala Asisat's name there so it wont be like she did not vote for her teammate. Wonder what the Falcon's dressing room will be like after this lmaoo ?♂️ https://t.co/mpZqlVJFx5

What perpetual nnkwocha did to Asisat is bad but.. Why will CAF ask you to vote in private and reveal it in public…

No one will complain if she wasn't deserving of the award. Funny thing is both(Asisat and the Cameroonian babe)were clear favs, not voting her as 1st is justifiable, but to vote her as 5th best?? Common man that's illogical, it's hatred.

For a legend to vote #Asisat as fifth best on the continent is nothing but pure hatred as far as I am concerned. The delegate that voted are entitled to their votes but to think Asisat is fifth in Africa in 2019 is nothing but sheer hatred and jealousy from Nkwocha

This voting pattern from Nigerians against Asisat Oshoala especially Perpetual Nkwocha who voted her in 5th place on the continent is embarrassing.
Thank God she deservedly won.

Let's even say that you're right for not voting Asisat.
How did five Nigerian delegates not find her worthy of African best? This thing is deeper than what we're hearing. https://t.co/5vhBIvUuH5

Oh I get it now. Asisat was going to equal her record and she couldn't let it so she voted her 5th. ? https://t.co/LzdcfczqSy
