2009 Glo-CAF Awards Tonight - Prez To Crown Africa’s best


Africa’s World Cup “fire” will be lighted tonight before Ghana’s president John Evans Atta Mills, his predecessors John Agyekum Kufuor and Jerry John Rawlings, and the bigwigs of African football as the Banquet Hall of the State House hosts the celebration of African football excellence. 

President Mills will be honoured with the Glo-CAF Platinum Award for his support of sports in Ghana and Africa, after which the head of state will have the singular honour of decorating the 2009 African Footballer of the Year. Ghana's Michael Essien, his Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba and Cameroun and Inter Milan's Samuel Eto'o as the three contenders for the continent's most prestigious individual football prize. 

 

 

Last Wednesday African chief, Issa Hayatou, arrived Accra as the head of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) delegation that also included the two Vice-Presidents and members of CAF's Executive Committee. 

 

 

Tonight’s Glo-CAF Awards will also be a gathering of former African football greats including the three contenders for the African Legend Award, Stephen Keshi of Nigeria, Jules Bocande of Senegal and Oswaldo Oliveira Saturnino 'Jesus', who will be joined at the Banquet Hall by several former international stars including Abedi Pele Ayew, Victor Ikpeba, Austin Eguavoen, Samson Siasia, Tony Baffour, Samuel Osei Kuffour and former Nigeria captain Peter Rufai. 

 

For the second time since 2007, Accra is hosting the annual Glo-CAF Awards which honours outstanding African footballers, teams, officials and groups. And tonight’s event represents the lightening of Africa’s World Cup flame, as organizers appropriately chose “the fire within” as the theme to signify the burning passion of African footballers to excel on the world stage.

 

 
"Fire acts as a messenger and spreads quickly just like the passion for football has spread throughout Africa. That fire is now making African footballers to excel on the world stage as symbolized by Ghana's historic victory at the 1999 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt," said Mr. Charles Jenarius, Globacom's Regional Director for Marketing Communications. 

 

 

In fact, the organizers have spared no expense to ensure a world-class show tomorrow night, with an array of globally celebrated music artistes like Nigerian "group P-Square, Senegalese Ishmael Lo, Ghana's Ghanaian Kwabena Kwabena, among others, billed to perform. 

 

 

Last week a 115-member crew from South African event organizing firm, True Colours Event, flew into Accra and hit the ground running with over 48 tonnes of equipment to begin preparations for what is expected to be a spectacular show. The crew includes artists, production crew, dancers, medics, security, sound/visual/ AV technicians, decor designers and stylists, creative directors, show callers, stage and logistic managers, ground support, runners and choreographers. 

 

 

The Banquet Hall has been branded in the green and white colours of sponsors, Globacom, with the stage beautifully designed backed by state-of-the-arts sound and video equipment geared towards putting a memorable event.


 
 
Ghana's Dominic Adiyiah and his Black Satellites coach, Sellas Tetteh, have been tipped to win the Young Player of the Year and Coach of the Year awards respectively, while the Ghana National Supporters Union (GHANSU) is also in contention for the 2009 Supporters Club of the Year award.
