Club career[edit]

Born in Lagos, Kazeem signed with Premier League club Fulham as a youngster. He was limited to reserve team football during his spell in England,[1][2][3] and subsequently moved to Portugal where he would remain for the vast majority of his career.

In the 2007 off-season, Kazeem joined S.C. Braga who loaned him immediately to C.D. Trofense.[4] He appeared regularly during his spell at the latter side, as they achieved a first-ever promotion to the Primeira Liga.

For 2008–09, Kazeem would be loaned again, also in the Segunda Liga, spending the season with Gil Vicente FC.[5] In the following campaign, more of the same – still as a Braga player – now with C.F. Oliveira do Douro in the fourth division.

After cutting ties at the Estádio Municipal de Braga, Kazeem continued playing in the Portuguese lower leagues, first with Sport Benfica e Castelo Branco then Vilaverdense F.C.[6] and Leça FC. He then took his game to Wales, signing with Lliswerry in 2014 and moving to Monmouth Town the following year.[7]
