Fans of the former Black Stars’ skipper, Stephen Appiah who wants to witness their icon honoured during the second edition of the “Showbiz Honors” can text “Appiah” to MTN, Vodafone and Airtel shortcode 1402 to get the chance to be invited to his honouring in December, according to Stacy Amoateng, the brain behind the event.
According to Stacy Amoateng, since the honouring event would be strictly by invitation, they are giving the opportunity to loyal fans of the former skipper to be part of the event.
“Over the years Stephen Appiah has influenced a lot of lives. People love him, so we are giving few people the opportunity to get something from him. So when you text Appiah to 1402 and randomly you could be called that you have won a souvenir from the sponsors or won a date with Stephen Appiah. So he will take you out, you can ask all your questions and have all the pictures with him,” she said.
“And because the awards night is strictly by invitation, it’s to give people the opportunity to get free invitation to the event. We are also working on giving the highest texter a plot of land,” she added.
