Akande arrived in Hong Kong from England after a year with Waltham Forest at 18. He played for Advance Tai Chung in the Hong Kong second division which piqued the interest of first division side Eastern Hong Kong and they signed Alex in January 2009.
Akande is now working on his paper that will allow him to play in England – he lived in England with his British family before moving to Hong Kong.
On 29 July 2013, Akande played against Manchester United in an exhibition match for Kitchee SC. He scored Kitchee's second goal in the 2–5 defeat on 68 minutes, as he turned Chris Smalling inside out before firing home.
