Actor Kwadwo Nkansah Lil Win Plays First Competitive Match For New Edubiase In Division One League

Movie Star Kojo Nkansah popularly known as Lil Win has made a debut appearance for New Edubiase as they hosted Unistar Academy in the National Division One League. He came in for Richmond Acheampong deep into stoppage time. The match day five encounter between New Edubiase and Unistar ended 2:0 in favor of the former. The actor cum player is expected to help New Edubiase qualify for next season’s Ghana Premier League.  

Lil Win has been appearing on the bench for New Edubiase in recent home games. He made a debut appearance for New Edubiase in a home match against Swedru All Blacks. 

In today’s game against Unistar Academy, the home side did not start on a strong note as they were dominated by their opponent in early part of the game. Despite the earlier struggles, New Edubiase put themselves together to enjoy possession which culminated in a quick break to hand them a penalty after Ahmed Ramzy was brought down in the box. That was expertly converted by lead striker Isaac Mintah to break the deadlock. With the lead, New Edubiase took charge of proceedings as they dictated the pace of the game and added the second goal through Isaac Mintah. He was put through after a counter break by Evans Junior. New Edubiase ended the first half with a two goal lead. 

Kojo Nkansah had his name on the list of substitutes for his club. It means, he was part of the players that sat on the bench for New Edubiase. His appearance on the team sheet and bench did guarantee a debut appearance. Kojo Nkansah together with his colleagues were seen undergoing warm up in the course of the game. After those exercises, he got the chance to feature for his club in a competitive game against Unistar Academy. He was fed a pass which he boldly controlled and found his colleague.

Spectators at Bekwai Gyamfi Park were sent to a state of hysteria as they witnessed a glimpse of Kojo Nkansah. 

New Edubiase are hoping to beat teams this season, top Zone 2 and qualify for the Ghana Premier League. They were part of favorites last season but lost the momentum in the closing stages of the campaign. The zone was later conquered by Bibiani Gold Stars who are now making a name in the top flight league. 

For New Edubiase to emerge winners of the zone, they have to battle it out with opponents such as Skyy FC, Samartex, Mysterious Ebusua Dwarfs and Hasaacas. 

This will require the effort of all players including Kojo Nkansah Lil Wayne. The club has also brought on board experience players such as former Accra Hearts of Oak midfielder Malik Akowuah and Francis Narh.
