Ogbonnaya Kanu is the first Nigerian biker to ride solo from Lagos, Nigeria to Austria, going through France, Germany, Austria and Italy.
Kanu, nicknamed Foto Dadi recently became the first Nigerian to ride from Nigeria to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa.
Kanu has ridden motorcycles in 26 countries with his own Nigerian-registered motorcycle in 23 of them.
The champ sees biking as more than life of adventure and setting records, but also changing the way in which Nigerians are perceived.
In 2012, Kanu became the first Nigerian biker to ride solo from Lagos, Nigeria to Austria, riding through France, Germany, Austria, and through Italy.
In mid-October, Kanu embarked on another solo trip riding from South Africa to Lagos.
He later became the first Nigerian member of the Iron Butt Association, also known as the World’s Toughest Motorcycle Riders, after biking 1,600 kilometers in 24 hours.
Kanu is the co-founder and member of the Board of Trustees of the Easy Riders Motorcycle Club of Nigeria, the first registered motorcycle club in Nigeria.
Kanu is also co-founder of the Ride Easy Motorcycle Training School, the Rise Easy Motorcycling Club of Lagos and the Superbike Clubs Association of Nigeria (SCAN) as well as the first and returning vice president of the Association of Nigerian Motorcycle Clubs.
