Lagos is definitely going to be ‘lit’ tomorrow, February 28th, when top celebrities will troop to the Campos Square Stadium, Lagos Island, for a novelty match in support of the fight against human trafficking.
Two teams of 11 each will slug it out on the pitch. One team will be led by movie star Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), coached by former Eagles Coach Christian Chukwu while the other team will be led by former veteran striker, Kanu Nwankwo and coached by Shaibu Amodu. Actresses, Ireti Doyle and Apostle Eucharia Anunobi will each play five penalties to determine the winners at the end of the day.
The programme is a project of Next2None support group and is tagged “Africa, My Africa Walk Against Human Trafficking Legendary/Celebrity Football Match.” Owerri, Imo State capital will play host to the stars after Lagos, followed by Accra, Ghana which holds later this year.
Barrister Ndukwe Sam Obu, Founder/Chairman BoT of Next2None support initiative, said: “I want to inform all that after the Lagos and Imo events, the capital city of Ghana, Accra is ready to play host to an array of African stars as they march in solidarity against the social menace of human trafficking. The African ambassadors will also play a charity football match at the Accra Stadium after the morning match.
Barrister Obu added that about 100 African celebrities from the movies, sports, comedy, religion, music among others, have been contacted to be part of the project.
