The host of Adom TV's "Fire for Fire" and a member of the Kumasi Asante Kotoko communication team pleaded with the fans to be at the stadium on Sunday, January 8, 2023.
To urge Asante Kotoko supporters to attend the club's games in the Ghana Premier League, Patrick Osei Agyemang, also known as Countryman Songo in the media, broke down in tears on Nhyira FM.
When the sports team was leading a campaign to increase attendance at the various stadiums in the local league on Saturday, Songo, a co-opted management member of Kotoko in charge of events and promotions, hurried to the studios of Nhyira FM in Kumasi.
The Ogya sports journalist said that on game days, fans should pack the Baba Yara Sports Stadium regardless of their concerns with the club's leadership and playing body.
Countryman Songo, one of the most famous critics of Kurt Okraku's administration at the Ghana Football Association (GFA), believes that bringing fans to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium will help the club financially so that it can run the team professionally.
Songo knelt down behind the microphone to talk to the fans of Kotoko in the studio of Nhyira FM in Kumasi, and he stated, "Kotoko supporters, always come and support the team; management will always listen to you in the year 2023. We plead with them, beginning with the game against Accra Great Olympics, to come in their numbers to the stadium and cheer the team to victory."
Kumasi Asante Kotoko supporters have failed to fill the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in recent matches; the number that turned up in their last home game against Berekum Chelsea was very unsatisfactory.
Luv FM and Nhyira FM launched a radio campaign to highlight factors affecting low attendance at Premier League matches and champion recommendations to increase support for the local league because the fans in Ghana were absent from the various stadiums.
