Actors and filmmakers from Nigeria have expressed dissatisfaction for losing a football match against their Ghanaian counterparts in Kumasi last Thursday as part of Ghana’s 57th Independence Day celebration.
The match which was also to raise funds for the Ghana Actors Guild (GAG), saw the Ghanaian stars trashing the Nigerians in a 3-I victory.
According to the Nigerians, the match was an impromptu one and their Ghanaian counterparts also enjoyed the advantage of home support.
They have therefore called for a return match to be played in Nigeria on October 1, which is Nigeria’s Independence Day. Nollywood superstar Hanks Anku was goalkeeper for the Nigerian team and he said he was scored because he did not get enough time to train.
While Ghana was represented by stars like Lil Wayne, Akroboto, Van Vicker, Prince David Osei, Bill Asamoah, Ben Adusei among others, the Nigerian team had the likes of Shegun Arinze, Victor ‘Awilo Sharp Sharp’ Usuagwu, Mama Ajasco, Dave Sam, Toyin Aimakhn, Sopiriye Fiberesima and others.
The event was sponsored by Osons Chemists, Kings Express Travel and Tours and Asuogyaman Company Limited.
