Célia Okoyino da Mbabi began her career at the age of five at TuS Germania Hersel, after her older brother had taken her to a training session. After several clubs at junior level, Okoyino da Mbabi joined the Bundesliga side SC 07 Bad Neuenahr in 2004. She quickly became a regular starter and an important player for the club. In 2005, Okoyino da Mbabi received the Fritz Walter medal in bronze as the year's third best female junior player. In March 2007, she suffered a fractured tibia in a league game against FC Bayern Munich, which ended her season. She had been the division's top-scorer up until then.
Okoyino da Mbabi held French citizenship through her mother. After the German Football Association had approached her, she became a German citizen at the beginning of 2004. Later that year, she was part of Germany's winning squad at the 2004 FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship, scoring three goals in the group stage.
In January 2005, Okoyino da Mbabi made her debut for Germany's senior national team against Australia. She scored her first goal in a friendly match against Canada in September 2006. A tibia fracture ruled her out for the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup. She was part of Germany’s squads claiming bronze at the 2008 Summer Olympics and winning the title at the 2009 European Championship, where she scored in the semi-final against Norway. At both tournaments, she was a reserve player with limited playing time. Okoyino da Mbabi has been called-up for the German 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup squad.
Okoyino da Mbabi was born in Bonn, Germany, the daughter of a Cameroonian father and a French mother. Her name "da Mbabi" roughly means "(daughter) of Mbabi", while "Okoyino" derives from her father's grandmother. Because of her long name, she is the only women's Bundesliga player with only her first name on her jersey. However, in the national team, her full family name is displayed.
In 2007, Okoyino da Mbabi graduated with the Abitur diploma at the Friedrich-Ebert-Gymnasium in Bonn. Her majors were Sports and French. Since October 2009, she has been studying Cultural studies at the University of Koblenz and Landau.
