Yes, you and I know the Attacking Midfielder who is also good at the right-back position and he is considered one of the best dribblers in his generation.

However, not many fans know about his life story, which is fascinating to read. Now, without further ado, let’s begin with the athletes’ early years.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Childhood Story:

For biography starters, the Nigerian-English Footballer bears the nickname BrightO. Bright Osayi-Samuel was born on the 31st day of December 1997 to Nigerian parents in the town of Okija, Anambra State, Nigeria.

Early on in his life, Bright Osayi-Samuel’s family moved to Spain, where they lived until he was nine years old. At the age of 10, his parents immigrated to England, settling in Woolwich, London.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Family Background:

Over time, the sign of a wealthy Nigerian household gets very obvious, as seen in their exotic lifestyles. No doubt, seeing the Winger and his mum on a private jet tour does reveal the family status.

In all honesty, you’ll agree with me that Bright Osayi-Samuel’s parents are rich. They are possibly the type who had formal education and could afford their beloved son everything he needs to excel in life.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Family Origin:

We all know the Footballer is from Nigeria. However, lots of fans have asked: which state in Nigeria does Bright Osayi-Samuel come from or hail?

Let’s get the fact right: seeing that his parents gave birth to him at Okija, Anambra State doesn’t mean Bright Osayi-Samuel has his origin in Eastern Nigeria.

The truth is, the name ‘Osayi’ has its origin in the Edo state in Nigeria. It is a Benin name that means ‘God created.’ Calvin Bassey‘s Dad (Kingsley Ikenna Ughelumba) has his origins in Anambra State.

By implication, Bright Osayi-Samuel’s family hails from Benin City, located in Edo State, Nigeria. This fact is evident as seen from fans’ often commenting with the words ‘Edo to the World’ on his post on social media.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Education and Career Buildup:

Since his childhood, the Nigerian-born winger has shown interest in playing football professionally. Early on, he began learning his football trade in the local field of Ojika, Anambra state, Nigeria.

To project a better future, Bright Osayi-Samuel’s parents decided their son would have his football education abroad. Hence the movement to Spain and then to England, where he got the opportunity to attend soccer trials.

Bright Osayi-Samuel began life in the UK by playing football at a park in Woolwich, London- close to his family home.

At age 16, life changed for the youngster when his application for trials went through for the team his dad and mum desired. 

Among all English clubs, it was the far-away Blackpool FC Academy. And did you know?… Bright Osayi-Samuel rejected Manchester United’s transfer in favour of Blackpool. For the Future Star, there are more chances of succeeding with a smaller club.

As part of the sacrifice, Bright Osayi-Samuel’s parents had to journey with their son for 4.5 hours from their family home (in London) to the North West of England (Blackpool).

Hard work no doubt paid off for the youngster, who possessed a steely determination to make his dreams come true.

The Nigerian-born Speedy Footballer had his own share of success at an early age. Did you know? He was part of the Blackpool team that won the EFL League Two playoffs in 2017.

Seeing so much of his pace, power and trickery, QPR couldn’t hold it anymore as they begged for his signature.

At the club, Bright Osayi-Samuel formed a formidable partnership with fellow Nigerian Eberechi Eze.

Together, the Nigeria duo tore down opposition defences- scoring great goals and producing numerous assists.

At the time of writing Bright Osayi-Samuel’s Biography, the Speedstar now hears his destiny calling him to a top-flight league, probably the EPL.

And would he join the Nigerian National team, which has the likes of Moses Simon? Well, only time will tell. Whichever happens, we wish him the best. The rest, as we say, is now history.

On the other hand, it could be that he has a girlfriend who happens to be his future wife but decides not to make it public, at least for now.

Personal Life away from Football:

You’ve probably got to know him as a speed dribbler on the pitch. However, getting to know the footballer outside the pitch will help you get a better picture of his personality.

First and foremost, Bright is someone who people describe as humble, responsible, and disciplined. The Winger lives a refreshingly humble life with absolutely no worries about what tomorrow holds.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Lifestyle:

No doubt, he comes from a wealthy family, but his humility is a rare quality. We see this in the humble lifestyle he possesses. Bright avoids glossy magazines and has an anti-flash attitude.

Thanks to proper grounding by his parents, he is easily noticeable with expensive cars, partying and showcasing big houses, etc.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Family Life:

No doubt, having a beautiful household has been an essential factor in defining his sense of career fulfilment. In this section, we’ll tell you more about his parents and family members.

About Bright Osayi-Samuel’s Father:

From the onset, the Footballer’s dad has been a crucial figure, one who has built his son’s self-image over the years.

No doubt, Osayi-Samuel (Senior) is a man who foresees the future of his son. He is Bright’s chief adviser right from his early career days.

As a Nigerian dad who has the country at heart, he has no issues convincing his son to represent his motherland. Bright once said, according to AllNigerianSoccer;

“I have decided, i will play for my country Nigeria. my dad wants me to play for the country. Also, the players in the team inspire me”

About Bright Osayi-Samuel’s Mother:

Like many Nigerians, the player often refers to his mum as “Mumzy”. Our team got to know that after he uploaded a pic of both himself and his beautiful middle-aged mum jetting out to an unknown location.

Even as an adult, Bright still finds time to cling to his mother at every possible chance. As observed earlier, both mother and son do share a special relationship.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Siblings:

So far, we know him as the only son to his parents- with little documentation as regards the existence of a brother or sister.

Actually, the only person we know he takes as a brother is Eberechi Eze. Both Stars, as observed earlier, forged a productive partnership during their time at QPR.

Bright Osayi-Samuel Facts:

Having read much on his Bio, it’s now time to unveil some truths we bet you never knew about the footballer. Without further ado, let’s begin.

FIFA Stats:

First and foremost, he is one of those cheap career-mode wonder kids you’ll need to buy on FIFA.

Like Victor Osimhen and Mohammed Kudus, Bright is a speed star. Both players have a similar pace, but Bright is far better in acceleration.

Having this colossal quality is a reason why he needs to leave QPR for a bigger club.

Bright Osayi-Samuel’s father was behind the United Snub:

According to ManchesterEveningNews, Bright once said his dad convinced him to snub a move to Manchester United as a youngster.

The decision, we believe, was in his best interest. Over time, we’ve seen many youngsters who begin their career with the big six but hardly make it to their first team or have successful careers.

Salary Breakdown and comparison to the average Nigerian earner:

EARNINGS/TENUREEarnings in Pounds (£)
Per Year£312,480
Per Month£26,040
Per Week£6,000
Per Day£857
Per Hour£14.2
Per Minute£0.23
Per Seconds£0.003

From the above breakdown, the Speedster earns a whopping 155,823,870 million Nigerian Naira per year.

A person earning N150,000 Naira (average income) in the country would need to work for at least 86 years. This was what Bright collected in just a year at QPR.

Since you started viewing Bright Osayi-Samuel‘s Bio, he earned this with QPR.


Bright Osayi-Samuel’s Net Worth:

Judging from the above salary stars, we can say that the Winger’s wealth isn’t that huge when compared to the highest-paid footballers, according to Forbes.

Despite that, his net worth of less than a million is set to skyrocket. Indeed, it is set to move higher than his fellow compatriot, Michael Obafemi.

About his Surname (a pointer to his Religion):

The family’s name has both tribal (Benin) and Christian origins. Both names have ‘God’ in their meaning. In the first place, Osayi means ‘God created’ while Samuel means ‘God has heard.’ Without being told, Bright Osayi-Samuel’s family practices Christianity.


As a matter of fact, the Winger is just about to open a new chapter in his life after rejecting a new contract with QPR. The truth is, he will be more popular after he leaves QPR for a bigger club and league.

We give credit to Bright Osayi-Samuel’s parents for their influence in his development since his moments in Nigeria, Spain and now England. To market his talent, his entire family has favoured him moving to the premier league or any top league.

No doubt, Nigerian football fans are on the verge of seeing another talent blossoming his way into redeeming the country’s lost image in football.

Above all, we conclude by saying ‘Thank you’ for taking out time to read Bright Osayi-Samuel’s Biography.
