One of Nigeria’s most popular gospel singers, Dr Yinka Ayefele has described the round leather game as a true unifying factor while promising to use football to help youths realize their dreams. The tungba crooner stated this while speaking with newsmen after a friendly football match played over the weekend at the mainbowl of Lead City University Sports Complex between Radio Nigeria Ibadan Network Centre and Fresh FM as part of activities marking the first anniversary of his Ibadan based Radio Station, Fresh FM.
Ayefele who went down memory lane said the match was of big significance to him because he started his broadcasting career at the FRCN Ibadan and he used to play from the outside left during his days with the FRCN football team.
He, however, vowed to institute a Fresh Cup where all the media houses in Oyo State would have the opportunity to participate and win big prizes, while he also intends to introduce the Ayefele Juvenile Cup for school pupils to showcase their talent and earn scholarship through the tourney.
“I chose Soccer because it is actually the globally acclaimed most popular sport and a very good unifying factor especially in this country. It is only when our national team is playing that we always see ourselves as one irrespective of our tribes”, the musician noted.
