Emmanuel Hyacinth Babayaro (born December 26, 1976 in Kaduna) is a Nigerian footballer. He is a goalkeeper, best known for being older brother of former Chelsea and Newcastle United player Celestine Babayaro.

Emmanuel was a keen central midfielder as a child, but his younger brother Celestine would force him to play in goal, hitting him until he gave in. It was in this position that he was noticed.

Babayaro was also part of Nigeria's gold medal winning team at the 1996 Olympics, a side in which Celestine also appeared.
