MacPherlin Dudu Omagbemi (born 18 July 1985Lagos, Nigeria[1]), commonly known as Dudu, is a Nigerian footballer.


Dudu started his career in India in 2001.He is the most tenacious player India has ever seen. When playing in the Indian Football League he had many great successes with Sporting Clube de Goa even becoming the league's top goalscorer. During his time in India he was involved in a scandal when he signed a contract with two different clubs simultaneously; one with SC Goa and another one with Mahindra United. The issue was later settled between the two clubs. He also had few other disputes with SC Goa later on concerning similar incidents.

The charismatic football player rejected the 2008 Olympic call-up to put his career back on track and on 5 August 2008 he joined the 3 time Hungarian champion Debreceni VSC.

In August 2010 Dudu signed a contract with Finnish Division Two club FC OPA from where he was loaned out to Finnish Premier League side KuPS.[2] In October 2010 Dudu signed a contract for the 2011 season with another Veikkausliiga team FC Honka.[3] On 4 August 2012, he signed a contract until autumn 2013 with KuPS.[4] On 4 August 2014, Dudu signed for I-League side Kingfisher East Bengal for a one-year deal.

On 1 September 2016, he joined Chennaiyin FC. On 26 November, he scored a brilliant hat-trick against North East United FC.[5]

On 6 January 2018, Dudu joined East Bengal of I-League.He made his first appearance of the season in the Kolkata Derby on 21 January 2018 which East Bengal lost by a 0-2 margin.He found the net near the end of the added-time to help East Bengal beat Indian Arrows by a solitary goal, which was the first goal from the Nigerian striker, who returned to East Bengal after three seasons as a midseason replacement for injured Willis Plaza.[6] He then scored 4 times when Chennai City was massacred 7-1 by Kingfisher East Bengal.[7]
