Thomas Sowunmi (born 25 July 1978 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Hungarian international association football player who played for the Hungarian First division team BFC Siófok.

Sowunmi was born in Nigeria to a Hungarian mother and a Nigerian father and spent the first nine years of his life in the African state. He started playing football aged 13 and began a professional football career with Dunaferr.

Sowunmi left for Vasas Budapest in 1998 but returned to his first club in 2001, having by this point become a full Hungarian international. He spent a short spell in France with AC Ajaccio but returned to Hungary with Ferencvaros in 2003. He was signed by FC Slovacko in 2005 but after one season became involved in a dispute with the club. Eventually he was released from his attachment to the Czech team following police and FIFA intervention.

Sowunmi signed for Hibernian on 6 February 2007 after impressing manager John Collins while on trial. In just his second match he came on as a half-time substitute in a Scottish Cup Quarter-final away tie at Queen of the South and scored the winning goal in a 2 - 1 win. He was released by Hibs in June, and Sowunmi re-signed for Vasas Budapest in September 2007.
