John Chibuike had a quite soft start in BK Häcken, but soon spectators around the venues saw that he had something extra. During his first season – 2010 he played as a midfielder and showed both good defensive and offensive skills and specially a good vision and technique. He made 27 out of 30 games during the season scoring 3 goals and making three assists.
In the start of Allsvenskan, season 2011 it became apparent that Chibuike had improved even more. Allsvenskan topscorer – and club fellow Mathias Ranégie said he was the team’s most import important player and that he very soon could see Chibuike playing on a European toplevel.
In the summer of 2014, Chibuike moved from Rosenborg to Turkish side Gaziantepspor, signing a four-year contract.
