Nwankwo Kanu whose heart foundation project has recorded over 540 successful heart surgeries, said he sees the reality show as a means of giving rewards to teaming Nigerian football fans.
“I realize soccer loving Nigerians have suffered a lot in the act of supporting their various clubs. I decided to become an ambassador and supporter of this great show with the aim of repeating what people said I have achieved with my project, Kanu Hearts Foundation.
“I have been a philanthropist right from my childhood days. I didn’t go into that all because people keep clamouring for the name “Papilo” but I went into this base on the negative news I have heard about soccer fans who gave up the ghost in the course of supporting their various clubs.
“I urge fans who know everything about their club to come grab tickets for the reality show,” he stated.
In a similar vein, Adeyemi Adeyemo who represented Managing Director, E- transact also explained reasons behind the partnership.
“We are very happy being part of this great idea. E-transact sees this as a way of rewarding soccer lovers. Football is the major game that unites Nigerians and we won’t hesitate to continue supporting the show.”
Fans across the six geo-political zones are expected to dial *389*123# or visit all available banks nationwide in order to purchase the ticket which is sold for 1,000 Naira only.
