During his early years, Lisbon-born Dady played professionally with modest clubs in the Portuguese lower leagues, after unsuccessful stints with Boavista F.C. and Sporting Clube de Portugal. In the 2005–06 season he started with second division side G.D. Estoril Praia but, after solid performances, attracted the attention of Primeira Liga's C.F. Os Belenenses.
Dady's first match in the top level was on 14 January 2006, in a 0–1 home loss against Sporting where he came on as 78th-minute substitute. After an uneventful first half-season he was a key attacking figure in 2006–07 campaign, scoring 12 goals as Belenenses finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup.
In August 2007, Dady signed with La Liga club CA Osasuna. Not an undisputed starter in his first season, he still finished as the Navarrese's top scorer, helping it barely avoid relegation; in the following two campaigns he featured even less regularly, due to physical problems – which included the extraction of a benign tumor in his femur– and the resurrection of veteran player Walter Pandiani.
In the summer of 2010, Dady signed with Bucaspor in Turkey, being released on 30 December and returning to Portugal in the following transfer window, with S.C. Olhanense. He netted seven times in 23 games in his first full season, being crucial as the Algarve team eventually avoided top flight relegation.
Dady began playing for Cape Verde in 2005.
