Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns duo Khama Billiat and Denis Onyango have made the final cut for the African Player of the Year Based in Africa award for 2016.

The Brazilians have enjoyed a successful 2016 and capped it off with a victory last night against Baroka FC in a Premiership fixture.

Hlompho Kekana scored the only goal of the game to see the Brazilians to a 1-0 victory after returning from playing in the Club World Cup in Japan.

The 2015/16 PSL Champions went on to claim victory in the CAF Champions League after being reinstated into the premier African tournament.

Billiat and Onyango played a pivotal role in guiding the Pretoria side to both silverware triumphs.

The winners are set to be announced on Thursday, January 5, 2017 in Abuja, Nigeria.
