He’s played for PSV in the Europa League, been capped by Belgium at under-21 level and shares his name with a psychotic Simpsons character.
What more could you possibly want in an Aberdeen summer signing?
There has understandably been some excitement after the Dons shelled out £125,000 for midfielder Funso Ojo from Scunthorpe.
Supporters are in a buoyant mood after the 27-year-old turned down Hibs at the last minute to come to the north-east, thanks to the persistence of Derek McInnes.
Once you get past that all signs point to this being a bit of a coup for Aberdeen.
That said, after the loss of captain Graeme Shinnie to Derby, McInnes has been in the market for a destroyer in the middle of the park and if Ojo is anything like his cartoon alter ego then he’ll fit the bill.
Making the breakthrough at Dutch giants PSV, Funso played alongside the likes of Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum, Napoli’s Dries Mertens and Marseille’s Kevin Strootman.
His chances were limited in Eindhoven however and after a loan spell with Dutch side VVV Venlo he returned to his native Belgium with Germinal Beerschot.
A move back to the Netherlands with Dordrecht followed where he was part of a squad which won promotion to the Eredivisie, the Dutch top flight.
A further 19 appearances in the top division with Dordrecht followed before he won a move to Willem II in 2015.
He became club captain there and made 67 appearances before he made the surprising jump to Scunthorpe United in England’s League One.
The reaction of his departure from Glanford Park tells its own story about how he was perceived down there.
First season he was absolutely outstanding. Last season he was lost and I felt that the team were lost without Funso. I didn't like his attitude when he said 'I don't want to play for Scunthorpe again' Songo'o will be a very good replacement.

His performances at the Iron saw him linked with moves to Leeds and Nottingham Forest in the recent past, another good sign that the Dons might have a player on their hands here.
Let’s not forget his first season with us, he was easily the best midfielder in league one. Didn’t like the other end of the table and this turned out to be his undoing. Good footballer all the same.

His agent and the way he manoeuvred his move away from the club as they struggled and were eventually relegated to League Two have clearly left a sour taste.
Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom also said there were “red lights” over the Ojo deal which is why they plugged the plug.
Whether that’s sour grapes or not I guess we won’t know for sure.
But if he can re-produce the sort of form which had Scunthorpe supporters calling him the best midfielder in League One then he’ll be a big hit at Pittodrie.
As the world’s most famous cartoon says: If you don’t have Funso, you’re nothing!
