Ghana, Nigeria actors clash …On Independence Day

The proverbial Ghana-Nigeria rivalry is set to take a different twist at the Baba Yara Stadium on Thursday, as Ghanaian actors and actresses clash with their Nigerian counterparts.

Put together by Koba Consults and Marbizila Company Limited, the event forms part of activities marking Ghana’s 57th independence anniversary day celebration.

Organizers of the event indicated that the determined Nigerian side began preparations for the clash a few weeks ago, and would be represented by heavyweights like Mr Ibu, Patience Ozorkor, Desmond Elliot, Mercy Johnson, Osoufia, Aki and Porpor and Victor Osuagwu among other top stars.

Their Ghanaian counterparts will parade stars like John Dumelo, Majid Michel, Prince David Osei, Agya Koo, Akrobeto, Lil Wayn, James Gardener, Jackie Appiah, Nana Ama Mc Brown and others.

And like their Nigerian counterparts, the Ghanaians, currently in a non residential camp, have stepped up their training at the La Park, Accra.

Dumelo and others will be rounding up their training session in Accra tomorrow and move to the Garden City of Kumasi the same day for the game this Thursday.

CEO of Koba Consults, Swanzy Essuman, in an interview said, “Certainly, the two games for the actors and the actresses are set to ignite fun.

“It’s Ghana’s Independence Day celebration, it’s all about fun, taking stock of what our founding fathers did for our beloved country, and our Nigerian brothers have decided to join us in the fun.

“It will be annualized and we are hoping to raise money to support the Ghana Actors Guild,” he added. A cool rate of GH¢2 and GH¢5 would be charged as gate fee and the monies that would be raised will go to support the Ghana’s Actors Guild.

The Nigerians are expected in the country for the showpiece tomorrow.

The event is being sponsored by Kenpong Travel and Tours, Osons Chemists, Asuogyaman Company Limited and Kings Express Travel and Tours.
