The Chairman Chief Executive of Big Joe Ventures, Comrade Sunny Osayande is set to host family, friends and well wishers as the occassion of his birthday, yearly celebrated in grand style, beckons.
The annual festivity, which has always been preceded by a novelty football match, will be no different in 2021 as the grassroot football lover and developer has already concluded arrangements to bring friends and ex-footballers together to mark the birthday celebration with a football match to remember on the 24th of January 2021.
Making this epic disclosure, the organizer of the novelty match which has been billed for Western Boys High School, Benin-City, Fred Newton Erhunmwunse, who has organised several match day events for the government of Edo State and corporate organizations as well as eminent personalities in the state, all is set for yet another entertaining game as Team Osayande takes on Edo Selected Ex-footballers, local and foreign.
” The two teams are already training ahead of the match. The game is billed for the birthday eve so the match is coming up a day before the birthday. This is strategic so as to ensure that the event becomes a fanfare so you can as well say it is going to be a 2-day event. Some of the stars are coming in from outside the state and from overseas”, the former Edo State Football Association member disclosed.
“The kits for the visiting team have already been taken care of by yet another bossom friend of the celebrant, Ambassador Wesley Asoro as his own way of showing love to his brother and friend the celebrant of the day and this is a gesture which has not gone unnoticed with Comrade Sunny Osayande while expressing his full gratitude to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Wesley Hotels Ltd for his benevolence.
