A young Millwall fan is on the way to becoming the next John Motson, after making it to the top-five finalists in Nickelodeon UK's commentator competition!

The competition invited viewers to show off their commentator skills by describing favourite moments from their local team. The overall winner will join Nick Kicks presenters Roman Kemp and Rachel Stringer pitch-side to commentate on this season’s Championship play-off final at Wembley.

For his video entry, Akai chose to commentate on Aiden O'Brien's goals against Scunthorpe and AFC Wimbledon, and Steve Morison's strikes in wins over Chesterfield and Oxford United.

Akai, who lives in Canada Water, and whose favourite football personalities are Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer, explained to NewsAtDen why he supports Millwall. “I like the energy in the stadium, the fans are so enthusiastic with the way they support the team. It’s exciting going there.

“My favourite player is Steve Morison, he scores so many difficult goals. And I like how Ben Thompson plays in midfield.”

Akai’s mum, Adede, added: “Millwall is the closest club to us, and it’s not too expensive to go there. Akai loves it.

“He loves sport. When we’re watching it on TV he’s commentating along to all the games.”

Akai joins Calum (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Georgie (Stevenage), Luke (Peterborough United) and Musab (Norwich City) in the final round of voting. Footie fans can support their favourite Diddy Pundit by watching and voting for their videos on nicktoons.co.uk/nickkicks! Voting closes at 23.59pm (BST) on Monday 15th May 2017. Good luck to all the finalists of Nick Kicks' Diddy Pundit contest!
