Alhaji Kamara (born 16 April 1994) is a Sierra Leonean professional footballer who plays as a forward for Danish Superliga club Randers FC and the Sierra Leone national team.

He started his professional career at FC Kallon in the Sierra Leone National First Division. At a young age, he had trials with Tippeligaen club Fredrikstad FK and Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer. Eventually he was signed by Swedish club Djurgårdens IF just after turning 18 years old.

Kamara failed to make an impact at Djurgårdens IF, and instead enjoyed loan spells to IK Frej and IFK Värnamo. Before the 2014 season, he was signed by IFK Norrköping, where he positioned himself as a key player during his first season. On 31 March 2015, Kamara was loaned out to Malaysia’s Super League champion, Johor Darul Ta’zim from IFK Norrköping.[2

However, the loan was cancelled in July 2015.He returned to Norrköping, and featured fourteen times as the team won the league.

In 2016 Swedish doctors declared Sierra Leonean forward Alhaji Wellbeck Kamara unfit to contnue playing professional football because of a serious heart condition. The doctors said, Kamara, who was just 21 at the time, faced the risk of a sudden death if he pushes himself too much.

But Kamara, who had just helped his team qualify for the UEFA Champions League, was not prepared to let a promising career end so abruptly. Not even the possibility of dying on the pitch could stop him.
He therefore decided to travel to the U.S. for a second opinion.

In the U.S., heart specialists said his condition wasn’t that bad and that he could continue playing.
Kamara’s refusal to take a no for an answer effectively resulted in a revival of his career. He currently plays for Danish top flight side Randers FC.

Kamara is also currently leading Sierra Leone’s frontline in the ongoing #AFCON.
