The Creative Championship


TCC Awards 2024

2nd Jun, 2024
Glitz, Glamour, and a Glorious End to a Remarkable Season

May 31st, 2024 entered TCC folklore as a day to remember forever.

Not only was it the first time a team achieved the double, with Beyond Limits defeating Sporting Lagos via penalties to win the TCC Cup. It was also the first time the league hosted an award night recognizing and celebrating outstanding performers.

Players, managers, stakeholders in the sport industry and well-wishers gathered to be a part of history as The Creative Championship honored the best of the best.

Isaac Okeoghene of Broad City went home with the Golden Glove award. The outstanding goalie had an exceptional season, helping his side manage eight clean sheets in the league. 

Rilwan Gbadamosi of Gbagada was named the Assist King, getting recognition for his contributions. Kparobo Arierhi of Beyond Limits was also recognized, as he won the Golden Boot for his prolific efforts in front of goal. 

Five players were shortlisted for the Player of the Year category:

  • Joshua Obakimi (Dannaz)
  • Semiu Fagbayi (Gbagada)
  • Rilwan Gbadamosi (Gbagada)
  • Segun Alfred (Gbagada)
  • Yusuf Abdullahi (Sporting Lagos)

Semiu Fagbayi beat his colleagues to the award as the Blue Eagle was named the Player of the Year. This nominee list was a sharp contrast to the one from last season which featured no Gbagada players. Talk about growth!

On the night, a number of players were also selected into the Team of the Season. Gbagada dominated the selection with three players making the team. Below are the 11 players selected:


  • Okoeghene Isaac (Broad City)


  • Segun Alfred (Gbagada)
  • Toheeb Adegbile (Broad City)
  • Naziru Ishaq (Sporting Lagos)
  • Gift Udoh (Real Sapphire)


  • Ibrahim Yusuf (Real Sapphire
  • Mukhtar Adamu (Sporting Lagos)
  • Moyosore Onikoyi (Escola)


  • Semiu Fagbayi (Gbagada)
  • Joshua Obakimi (Dannaz)
  • Rilwan Gbadamosi (Gbagada)

Coach Adedeji Ayeoba (Imperial), Coach Olumide Ajibolade (Beyond Limits) and Coach Godwin Gibson (Dino) were all shortlisted for the Coach of the Season category. The Beyond Limits gaffer went home with the award after winning four league titles in a row and recording the league’s first-ever double.

The awards night was a perfect way to bring an eventful season to a colorful end. It also further strengthened a truth: The Creative Championship is the finest breeding ground for the rising stars in Nigerian football.
