"In building a formidable economy, all sectors in country must be working in tandem with one another. Interestingly, both the football and entertainment sectors are dominated by the youths."

" With such partnership , the performance of the entertainers before the commencement of the match and the break will surely bring more enthusiasm and population to the stadium,as such the management of the club will be able to generate more income for day to day running of its administration."
