A star-studded Ghanaian team of actors beat their Nigerian counterparts 3-1 in friendly match played in Kumasi last week.
The Ghanaian team made up of movie stars such as; Van Vicker, Bill Asamoah, Kwadwo Nkansah â€˜Lil Wynâ€™, Akrobeto and Prince David Osei proved too strong for their Nigerian opponents who had the likes of Shegun Arinze, Victor â€˜Awilo Sharp Sharpâ€™ Usuagwu, Mama Ajasco and Dave Sam in their ranks.
The game according to organizers â€“ Koba Consult and Marbizila â€“ will be held annually to thrill movie fans of both countries despite the setbacks experienced in the first edition to mark Ghanaâ€™s 57th Independence anniversary.
â€œItâ€™s been an eye opener. It was difficult pulling all these stars together,â€ Chief Executive officer of Koba Consult and Marbizila Swanzy Essuman said after the game.
â€œSome had to abandon their sets to join in the event.
â€œWe have accepted all the anomalies that surfaced along the line and we are hoping to improve in subsequent editions. We have purposed to do this annually.â€
