Abu Bakr went to Queen's Royal College in Trinidad and began his career in Trinidad and Tobago side Caledonia AIA, before signing for Swansea City on 30 August 2009, in a short-term loan deal until 1 January 2010. Bakr has been signed to help relieve the injury crisis at the club. He previously had two trial spells at the club, in 2007 and in 2008, but was unable to sign for the Swans after they were denied a work permit. Bakr started his career at a relatively late age which he has put down to him deciding to put his head down and study, he took a degree in business management in Kingston University in London.
In August 2009 a work permit was arranged for the UK, and Radanfah signed a short-term contract with Swansea from the first of September 2009 to the first of January 2010. After this deal expired he was not offered terms to extend his stay and so returned to Trinidad to sign for Joe Public. On 21 July 2011, he was signed by Belgium club Olympic Charleroi after a successful trial. He left Olympic Charleroi and returned to Caledonia AIA during the 2012 season.
