The annual Beach Soccer Tournament (COPA Lagos 2017) organised by Kinetic Sports has unveiled a list of the female celebrities that will be participating in this edition of the tournament to kick off on December 9.
COPA Lagos 2017 which has always been about male celebrity match, fashion show, music event, elaborate closing ceremony and after-party will for the first time in seven years have a female celebrity match.
The official list of the female celebrities that will be participating at COPA Lagos 2017 include;
- Bolanle Olukanni
- Wofai (Fada)
- Sharon Oja
- Kaylah Oniwo
- Beverly Osu
- Ann Agumanu AND
- Destiny Amaka.
Ladies which are commonly known as arena spectators and guest” in the past events, are coming to show their techniques and they will hit the sand running with their beach soccer skills which will be an interesting watch.
Asides the uniqueness of the Female Celebrity Match, COPA Lagos is deliberate in its key messaging that emphasises the all-inclusive nature of the tournament.
Last year, male celebrities at COPA Lagos were pitched against each other in two teams – as follows:
- Team D’banj and Team Victor Ikpeba.
- Team D’banj comprised the likes of Peter Okoye of P-Square,
- Samson Adamu – CEO of Kinetic Sports, organisers of the event, and Beat FM On-Air-Personality – Jimi. While
- Victor Ikpeba’s team had other ex-Nigerian internationals such as Aloy Agu in goal, Waidi Akanni, Victor Agali, Mutiu Adepoju, Ifeanyi Udeze and Frank Edoho – former host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
The ex-internationals dominated the match – small wonder they won by a 2 – 1 scoreline
