Twenty year old Joseph Akpo, an upcoming footballer of SIDAB Football Academy,  Lagos, Nigeria says he benefitted the most from the trip to Old Trafford with the  third set of winners in the second season of the Recharge and Go to Old Trafford  promo.

The third set of seven winners including Adefeyisan Adeniyi, Onabadejo Ademola  Ayinde ( a medical doctor), Oyelami Adesoye Fatai, Ayinla Issa Alaba, Ayodele Helen  Jumoke ( a student), Oghenejuvwetee Osivwi and Akpo went to watch the match between  Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs at the Theatre of Dreams, Manchester City  in the United Kingdom last week.

According to Akpo, the trip was enlightening, eye opening and confidence-building.  “Being a footballer, I gained more than everybody who went on that trip with me.  It’s what my fellow players in Nigeria dream about. I was able to traverse the  grounds that great players played upon, walked where they walked and sat where they  sat.” According to Akpo, he met with Michael Owen and Nanny (Louise Almeida Carlos  da Cunha) who scored the two goals in the Spurs–United match.

“When I met Owen, I thought to myself that I am even taller than this great  footballer, so if he could do it, then I could also be a great footballer.” He said.  For Akpo and almost all the other Glo subscribers who were on that trip, it was  their first trip outside the country. Jumoke Ayodele who just finished from the  University of Ibadan believes that Globacom had changed her life forever. “Levels  have changed” she exclaimed.

Relieving his experience, Adefeyisan Adeniyi Ademola, said he kept slapping himself  to be sure he was not dreaming. “It was the happiest moment of my life, we were  entertained in the Europa Lodge which is a preserve of Millionaires (in pounds) and  everyone waited on us even though we were the only blacks in the place, I had to  keep slapping myself to be sure I was not sleeping” Adefeyisan said.

The seven winners emerged after recharging with a minimum of N500 airtime. Other  prizes include cash prizes of N250, 000 to be won by 4 winners daily and N500 free  airtime for 1000 subscribers weekly. By the end of the second season, 127 winners  would have won an all-expense-paid trip to Manchester.
