It was a special moment for Fred Amata on May 15, as Celebrities and Ex-Super Eagles played a novelty match at the Campus Square Stadium to mark his 50th Birthday..
The Ex- Super Eagles won the match by 5 goals to 3 against the celebrity side who also put up a spectacular performance. Jay Jay Okocha who was the man of the match scored 3 goals to win the highest goal scorer award against the highly gifted and competitive AY who scored 2 fantastic goals for his team. Legendary Henry Nwosu, Samson Siasia and Nollywood Director Moses Inwang also scored a goal each for their respective sides.
The Golden Jubilee fiesta for Fred Amata, which was witnessed by lovers of entertainment and sports in Lagos, also saw the birthday boy giving himself a birthday present by stepping ahead of Sexy Steel to miss a penalty kick for the Celebrity side. Frank Edoho of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire did a great job, but later chose the option of sitting in the audience, against phoning a friend or going for 50-50 like he would suggest on his show. Other hilarious moments includes the newly ported MTN Saka who came into the game with a “porting” problem by not knowing what direction to play from. Nollywood Director Obi Emelonye was obviously missing “The Last Flight to Abuja” the way he was busy running around the field of play with the likes of Basorge, Okey Bakassi, Alibaba, Kcee and a host of others. Even the combination of Aki and Pawpaw as one player to increase the celebrity side to 12 on the field of play, did not stop Victor Ikpeba, Peter Rufai, Mutiu Adepoju and the rest of the Ex- Super Eagles side from claiming the day…AY’S BLOG
