Popular sports TV presenter, Kiibati Bankole, who last year launched her highly entertaining TV game show – Superfan Challenge is set to take the world of football entertainment and rivalry to a new level, as she seeks to further bridge the gap between football and show biz.
Her show has seen the likes of celebrities like 9ice, Ruggedman, Gbenga Adeyinka, TA, etc go at each other in the name of football rivalry; for example, Ruggedman, a fan of Manchester United, called Arsenal fans area-boys on the show, which prompted comedian Gbenga Adeyinka- an Arsenal
fan to hit back at Ruggedman the following week- challenging him to a one million Naira bet on Manchester United’s chances of winning the English Premier league this season.
9ice, a fan of Chelsea FC, also hit at Arsenal fans on the show, claiming that anyone over 18 years of age that supports Arsenal has no priorities. He also hit at Manchester United, calling the club racist.
Kiibati has come up with a clever concept that will enable these celebrities go up against each other, face-to-face in defense of their favorite clubs. It is called Celebrity Superfan Challenge and will hold
monthly. The first version of this showdown comes up next week Saturdayat DeVogue, Opebi road, Ikeja
