Musa Usman who last December 2015, also won the Mark d’ ball trophy in Otukpo with the team called ”Blame It On Experience”  re-affirmed  his desire to be at the Olympics in Rio de Janiero with the D’ Tigers of Nigeria if given the opportunity to serve his country by coach William Voigt . “For me, to play at the Olympics would be a dream, a great honour to represent my country at the Games.

Speaking on the chances of his team (Mark Mentors) retaining the league trophy this season, The Vice Captain of the Abuja Millionaires as the team is called, stated emphatically that nothing has change, the team still remain relevant and will compete on all front for the league glory,

He allayed fear that the departure of some of the key players that won the league title last year has not in any way affected or depleted the team’s chemistry rather it has given them a new synergy to forge ahead.
