Career

Kanu joined Beira-Mar in the summer of 2008 from Águia Negra. His time with Auri-negros saw him feature regularly in a side which in the 2009–10 season claimed the Segunda Liga, thus gaining promotion to the Portuguese top flight. Kanu scored the goal which sealed promotion to the top flight against Carregado.

In January 2011, Kanu would leave Beira-Mar for Belgian side Standard Liège on an undisclosed fee. In the summer of 2013, he attracted interest from Anderlecht and Sporting CP, but decided to stay with Standard Liège.

On 29 December 2015, Belgian Pro League team Oud-Heverlee Leuven announced the signing of Kanu for 2,5 years as he was brought in to help the team avoid relegation, however only three months later as the team had suffered relegation his contract was deemed to be too much of a burden for the second division and he was subsequently released. In his short period back in Belgium, Kanu appeared 7 times, scoring one goal against Lokeren.
