Is Ceek ending the sponsorship deal with Asante Kotoko?

Award-winning virtual platform Ceek VR is allegedly considering pulling out of their sponsorship deal with top Ghanaian Football Club, the porcupine warriors due serious leaks.

The news has not come as a surprise to most people who have seen part of the confidential agreement circulating all over the internet and wondered why someone from Kotoko will decide to leak such confidential document to the media and the motive behind such action.

According to multiple sources, some Kotoko members are not too pleased about Nana Yaw Amponsah being the CEO and his vision for porcupine warriors. As a result, have decided to frustrate him. PENDREAM TV (YouTube) and others have named some of sabotagers and leakers who want the young CEO out of the enviable Kotoko seat.

The Ceek Kotoko Confidential Contract was leaked, after CEO, Nana Yaw Amponsah mention during the official launching of Asante Kotoko partnership with Southampton on Ceek.com that

”on the juicy part of our partnership with ..“I will love to announce that, @CEEK  for the first part of the partnership, are giving us $100,000 in cash and products.”‘

 

He further added that ‘

‘The cash has gone a long way to help us with the Adako Jachie project and the products they are giving us have also seen our fans see the players wear the @CEEK headset to cool off before and after matches’

Reports indicate that Ceek’s decision of terminating their sponsorship with the club is as a result of  what others deem as unprofessional and unacceptable behaviour from such a respectable football club leaking confidential contract details to the media.

Fans out have called few journalists for their greed for money and hypocritical nature of doing anything to revive their failing careers.

Others believe this will deter other sponsors from approaching Football clubs or businesses in Ghana. We came across the post below and is obvious from the comments even the fans a appalled by leak.

Below are some replies to the post below:

‘No club which is effectively managed is subjected to these nonsense enquiries from some so called media. No media in Egypt can disclose to you even the font in which Ahly or Zamalek’s sponsorhip deals were written in.’

What do you gain from leaking details of a contract to the public? What do you gain??!

‘Irresponsible journalism. And you same people will criticize our league and teams for lack of sponsorship’

First of all I don’t think Kotoko mgt owe it a duty to publish or give contracts dey sign wit any sponsor to any journalist or media hse.if any journalist or media hse thinks it’s compulsory to ve de contracts n r not getting dey shd go to court n not waste our ears

Ceek Considering Termination Of Kotoko Contract Over Leakage

We checked the Ceek product and noticed that the headphones cost $249.99 per each.  50 x $249.99 = over $124k + $50 = $174k per year.

We honestly hope leakers in Kotoko camp will  put aside their differences and accept and support the current CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah to bring the vision he has for the club.

Both officials of Ceek and Asante Kotoko have not come out officially to explain in details the root cause of the news to the public. 

Stay tuned for more details as and when there is any official revelation from Kotoko or development from both parties.

What is more surprising about all these leakages is the fact that, ”Ceek Considering Termination Of Kotoko Contract Over Leakage” has been leaked!

Today, 6th March 2021 marks the first day of TEDx Accra 2021. The virtual event  had speakers from both Africa and the Diaspora who believe that the African narrative is consistently misrepresented.

‘…The time has come for Africans to tell their own stories.’

TEDx Accra’s theme of “Forces That Unite” inspired by the famous 1963 “Africa Must Unite” speech, delivered by the first president of Ghana, and the father of modern-day Pan-Africanism, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. 

 

TEDxAccra 2021 Virtual Event on CeekVR – Day 1

The basis of TEDx Accra originates from the three pillars derived from Dr. Kwame’s speech, namely: Rewind, Reflect, and Redefine.

Rewind represents reminiscing our past and acknowledging lessons derived and knowledge gained from the past, while Reflect is all about overlooking our past errors and getting to know what is needed to define our narrative.

On the other hand, Redefine is about telling our stories through our collective voices and in our own way.

The event was kicked off with a powerful and awakening poem from Lamer Kofi James, a writer, poet and activist. Lamer’s poem addressed the existing bad governance in Africa, the continued oppression of Africans by their governments, the lack of cooperation among African countries, and the lack of pride among Africans in who they are with their distinctive features.

The event was streamed the award-winning, premium, streaming platform ceek.com and also their VR App.

Safo Akonnor was the first , he is “The Conversations in the Dark” podcast host. In his podcast, Safo leverages the power of conversation by providing a platform that gives all Africans a chance to open up about their harrowing experiences with matters such as mental illness and ethnic privilege in African societies.

Safo Akonnor talking about the Power of Difficult Conversations – TEDx Accra

Similar to his podcasts, on day one of the TEDx Accra, Safo addressed the issue of mental illness among Africans and how African societies expect men to deal with mental issues by themselves “like a man,” as most put it.

Other speakers include 

Sally Osafo, a lover of deep and thoughtful conversations about existential crises and more with anybody interested also shared very insightful message.

Trying to compare what being an African girl sometimes feel like, Osafo compared the life of an African girl living in Africa to a piece of charcoal (bidie), where once the charcoal burns out to ashes after cooking, it is thrown away.

She addressed how it feels like in Africa where like charcoal, you wait to be used by someone else (politicians and businesses) and get nothing out of it except “drained energy and insignificance.”

The event also featured other Africans from far and wide, such as June Gachui, a phenomenal woman who is a lawyer, actress and musician, an entrepreneur, and the most recent radio host at Capital FM in Kenya.

June Gachui – TEDx Accra Virtual Event

 

The event wouldn’t be complete without something about love. And that is what June Gachui graced the occasion with, love. Gachui addressed the topic of love for one another using all the best words ever.

Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa, whose father is Ghanaian spoke about Reuniting the African Diaspora.

Joshua Andrews-Egyir the Founding Director, Dominion Capital shed light on’ Of Citizens, Country, and Re-imagining Ghana’s Tomorrow, Today.

Bernard Sokpe spoke about How can we Influence the Change 

Like what most of the speakers in the event emphasized, the time has come for Africa to wake up. The TEDx Accra is a wake-up call to all Africans.

It’s time for all Africans to safeguard their future and the future of the coming African generations. And the best way to way to safeguard the future is through coming together and rewriting the stories about Africa and claiming our spot in this world.
