Ace comedian Julius Agwu holds football talent hunt in Rivers state


     Ace Comedian /musician Julius Agwu has delved into  football as he sponsors the Akpor Football Talent Hunt Competition to be played out amongst the 10 communities in Akpor Kingdom of Rivers State.

      According to Agwu, he wants to encourage the people of his area and give back to the place he comes from.
  “I thought long and hard about it and I decided that if I want to give back to the people it should not be a music or comedy thing.
     We all know that football is the in thing these days and I am privileged to know a lot of these former Super Eagles players and football academy owners who I have decided to invite over to watch the competition and possibly pick out talents who may play football to the highest level,” Agwu said.

 Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, and Flying Eagles coach, John Obuh, have  been confirmed to be in attendance at the the opening match on Sunday, November 13, 2011 .
