Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was named African player of the year for the second consecutive year in Dakar in Senegal. 

The Egyptian star defeated his close competitors Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and teammate Sadio Mane to cling the prestigious award. 

In celebrating winning the African Player of the Year award, the 26 years old paraded an awkward dance move that no one expected. 

He was joined by other dancers who helped psyche him in dancing. 

Salah who scored four times for his national team has helped them qualify for the African Cup of Nations that will be hosted in their country in June 2019. 

It will be interesting to watch this year's tournament, with our very own Harambee Stars having qualified for the tournament, which will be held in June for the first time in history. 

He has already scored 16 times for Liverpool enabling them to stay at the top of the table. 

Last year, he scored 44 for his club enabling them to sit on the fourth position in the English Premier League table. 

His magical skills helped Liverpool reach the finals of the Champions League. Unfortunately, he was injured in the first half which saw him leave the pitch in tears. 

Salah was also named in the African Best XI of 2018.
