The story of Musa Mohammed and Gor Mahia FC dates back to January 2009, when he arrived at the club as a young, talented and aspiring defender.
And when the history of the club is written, the Lang'ata High School graduate will deservedly earn a chapter in the tales of Kenya's greatest football club. Musa is one of the longest serving members of the current squad, second only to skipper Jerry Onyango. He has been the granite rock on which K'Ogalo's elaborate palace has been built: a solid defender who often and cautiously buccaneers upfront in the modern mound, but one who never neglects his defensive duties.
Musa makes for a superb defender – formidable in the air, tenacious in the tackle and an astute reader of the game. His thoroughbred performance as a roaming defender has been key to Gor Mahia’s glory in the trophies the club has won in the last four seasons. His versatility is what has seen him stay at the club long enough to surpass the 200th appearance mark, a fete he achieved in a league match against Nairobi City Stars in August 2015.
Musa's stay at the club has more than once been cast into doubt, more dominantly in the 2012 season when the then head coach Zdravko Logarusic had his back four preference in Ivan Anguyo, Donald Mosoti, Christopher Wekesa and David Owino. But the Croat still kept him as his secret card and would unleash him in games that mattered, like who else would effectively naturalize the marauding run of Kenyan international winger Paul Were if not Musa Mohammed.
Glamorously, Musa has won every trophy available in the local scene; domestic cup in 2011 and 2012, KPL Top 8 Cup in 2012 and 2015 and KPL titles in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
