Essien Wins MTN Soccer Academy 5 Reloaded


It was all fun and anxiety last night at the MTN Soccer Academy house when fans of the various teammates in the soccer reality show thronged the academy house at Ridge, Accra to witness the grand-finale of the prestigious event

The 80 day event which started last November saw fourteen (14) housemates including eventual finalists Godwin Gakpo, Bernard Gyimah, Kobina Essien, Joseph Adams, and Gabriel Darko competing for the ultimate prize.

In the end, teammate number 7 Kobina Essien was announced the winner by host Eddy Blay and went home with the 4×4 Hyundai ix35, a lip-smacking GH¢10,000 and a summer camp training section with one of English Premiership giants Chelsea FC or Liverpool FC.

The first runner-up and second runner-up positions went to Bernard Gyimah and Gabriel Darko respectively.

Essien becomes the fifth winner of the reality show after Gideon Baah, Steven Sowu, Arago Jamal and Awal Mohammed respectively.

MTN Soccer Academy is an Optimum Media Prime (OMP) reality show in collaboration with Metro TV and has MTN as title sponsor with support from Auto Plaza and Nestle Milo.
