It
was fun and colour at the Unilag Sports Centre when celebrities from different
fields in the entertainment industry came together to play football to raise
awareness for Out-Of-School children and raise funds for 200 such children.
The
event which took place at the University of Lagos Sports Center was tagged
‘Football For A Cause’ was organized by a volunteer driven project
StayInSchoolng Initiative.
The
roll call on the field was overwhelming with the likes of Naeto C, Skales,
Shaydee, Olisa, Elenu, Owen Gee, Seyi Law, Akpororo, Omobaba, Senator, Funny
bone, Wale Rubber, Breeze and Uche of City FM, Nedu, Damirez of Top Radio, Mc
Abbey, Kollertunz, Kayode Peters, Yaw, Adams Soundcity, Bonus, Wole MD EXP
Marketing amongst others gracing the pitch to display their skills.

The
guests were in for a comical match as the comedians dominated the pitch
dribbling and running commentaries simultaneously. The highpoint of the match
was a lone goal from Breeze of City FM which saw Team
Green captained by Naeto C go home with the trophy at the end of the match.
Speaking
on the event, Coordinator of the StayInSchoolng Initiative Tricia Ikponmwonba
said ‘The concept of merging entertainment and football was a difficult
but rewarding experience, we are grateful to all the celebrities who took out
time to come out to support us. We have previously enrolled 75children into
schools and will be enrolling 200 more children in the following week.
The
fight for education for the street child continues as we commence preparations
for Season 2. See Football For A Cause in pictures below.
