Talented forward Khama Billiat sealed his place in Zimbabwean football folklore last night when he was named the second best Player playing on the continent at the CAF Glo awards in Abuja last night.

At a glittering ceremony where the Confederation of African Football rewarded individuals and teams who excelled in 2016, Billiat added to his individual accolades by coming second in the African Footballer of the Year category.

The 26-year-old Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder had already bagged the South African Premiership Footballer of the Year, Players Player and Kick Off Footballer of The Year awards going into last night’s awards.

Billiat was shortlisted together with his Sundowns teammate and Ugandan goalkeeper Denis Onyango who took the accolade and Zambian skipper Rainford Kalaba.

Zimbabwe’s Mighty Warriors were also nominated for the Women Team of The Year award.

But the spotlight was on Billiat who not only inspired Sundowns to Champions League glory but also led the Warriors to the African Cup of nations finals scoring three goals in the campaign in which Zimbabwe were the only team from Southern African too qualify for the showpiece. The Chronicle

  • he is the best

  • haha hamuzivi here kuti zimba tinotorerwa pasi always ipapa dai ari musouth African akatoitofa award iyoyo

  • Khama billiat is true is malawian coz his mother and his father from malawian

  • Second best?? I thought he was the best!! Shouldn’t the best come from the team that won the Champions league!!

    • Onyango who was voted best also is from the same team as Khama though I thought Khama could easily have clinched the top spot given the fact he swept all awards in SA league than his team mate Dennis Onyango.

    • Okay, the best was Dennis!! But l still think Billiat was more effective & influencial!!

    • I feel the same bro.

    • Khama was robbed ! Onyango played but not like Khama .

    • if he wasn’t from zim he wld have bn awarded for the best player,muchaona kuAfcon ikoko kuti tichabatirirwa sei

    • Its Club level vs Africa…recheck the achievements of the Ugandan player from the last season.(2015 /2016).

    • In 2013 Frank Ribery named 3rd best player on FIFA Ballon D’or ahead of his team mate Bastian Schweinstigier who named best player in Germany league. In 2014 Lionel Messi was Ballon Dor runners up but back home Angel De Maria named Argentina player of the year though the two were both playing in la liga.2016 Antonio Griezmann was best player in la liga but lost Ballon to C.Ronaldo fellow la liga mate.Its limited to Africa alone
