We are beyond excited to share some incredible news! Our very own Mohammed Kudus has made it onto the 2023 Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 list!
The prestigious list is a celebration of Africa’s brightest and most innovative young minds and leaders, and we couldn’t be prouder to see Kudus among them – A massive achievement and a testament to what hard work and dedication can achieve when coupled with such remarkable talent.
The 22-year-old versatile midfielder joined Right to Dream at the age of 12 and made his debut with our very own FC Nordsjælland just three days after turning 18 to become the ninth youngest player to start a game with the Danish club – Talk about making an impact and championing young talent!
He quickly made a name for himself as one of the brightest young players in Europe. And it was only a matter of time before he caught the eyes of Dutch powerhouse Ajax FC and joined them on a five-year contract.
Today, Kudus is one of the most exciting young talents in the game, dazzling fans with his skills and scoring sensational goals in both the UEFA Champions League and the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup. A prolific and effective dribbler, an adept scorer, and an all-around superstar, Kudus has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with.
His former coach at Right to Dream and FC Nordsjælland Mas Ud Didi Dramani knows Kudus better than most and believes that his best is yet to come.
According to Darmani, "Being mentioned among the top 30 means his efforts and hard work are being acknowledged. He has matured as a person and has improved his tactical awareness and attention.
“RTD and FCN have really brought him this far. And the Ajax refinery has been great, providing the best transition any young athlete could ever have."
We agree 100% with Darmani's sentiments. Kudus has worked incredibly hard to get where he is today, and it's heartwarming to see his efforts being acknowledged on such a prestigious platform. He's an inspiration to young people everywhere, and a shining example of what we, at Right to Dream, strive to achieve. We’re all about empowering young people to achieve their dreams and become the best versions of themselves, and Kudus is living proof that it's possible.
