  1. Shukura Vs Sabon Zongo!!Is a serious Zongo El-classico. Wish there is a slot like Mamobi Vs Nima 😂.I will like to thank those who organize this program or tournament to bring peace among we the Muslim ummah in Ghana under the leadership of our father/grandfather Sheikh Sharubutu.May Allah continue to prolong his stay on earth but to the organize we will be happy if they can start putting things like Muslim tertiary schools,Muslim Hospitals,Etc in his name so at least one day when he is no more there will be an achievement for him and also blessings in his grave instead of the Mawlid,So my football organizers can also see that aspect in addition to the football tournament which is a very good platform to unite us. Just my humble opinion and I stand to be corrected.
