Days of parents asking their kids to face their books squarely and don't give a thought to playing football seems over.

But with the world record transfer move made by Neymar on Thursday, 'the gospel of football' has more converts; including popular Nigerian artiste, Timi Dakolo.

Dakolo like many across the world is wowed with Neymar's outrageous £198m transfer fee from Barcelona to PSG.

The Bayelsa born soul singer is ready to see his son follow the route of the Brazilian super star.

Dakolo on his Instagram page posted his son's picture clothed in FCBEscola Jersey, which is FC Barcelona's football academy and he said the little boy MUST play football.
