Star singer Wizkid and rapper Naeto C have been announced as ambassadors of Eko Football, a Lagos State soccer festival which will be holding its first event in September 2012.
A few months ago, the Lagos State Football Association (LSFA) announced that the first Soccerex event in West Africa, the Soccerex Seminar Lagos would be hosted in Lagos; the Eko Football Festival will also take place in Lagos; coinciding with Soccerex Seminar Lagos this September.
Organizers say the Eko Football Festival will be a first of its kind event in Nigeria, where football and the entertainment industry will converge. The plan is to improve the level of football tourism in Nigeria.
