Having earned himself the nickname 'Sha Sha' since arriving in Chloorkop from Highlands Park at the start of the season, he appears the favourite to take the award back to Namibia after countryman Deon Hotto was crowned the winner last season.

Hotto is back among the nominees this season given his impressive showing for Orlando Pirates, but has only accumulated 10 percent of the votes thus far.

Also in the running is Themba Zwane, who is second behind Shalulile with 13 percent of the votes, while Mduduzi Mdantsane, Ruzaigh Gamildien, Fortune Makaringe, Augustine Mulenga and Bradley Grobler lag behind with a share of the remaining 16 percent of the votes after the first week.
