According to one of the organisers, Mr. Adeoye Adejare, the purpose of the event was to boost interaction among celebrities in Oyo state, thereby fostering togetherness and consequentially, development.
“The event was organised because we feel there is a need to promote business interaction and social togetherness among celebrities in Oyo State. That was why we brought in prominent people from different fields of human endeavour”, Adeoye said.
He added that the organisers are working towards a bigger event subsequently, as the organisers shall soon “chat a way forward so that Ibadan can have a bigger celebrity five-a-side event than the one organised in Lagos”.
