Chief Executive Officer of Rite Multimedia, Yaw Sakyi Afari, is thrilled with the level of performance at the recently concluded season-2 of Community Dunks and insists it’s only a matter of time before their talents are blown out of proportion.
Eight (8) selected communities participated in the one-month long championships at the University of Ghana basketball court where Kaneshie lifted the competition for the first time.
It was one championship that brought the best out of the U-18 basketball players which continually drew sizeable crowd to the venue on weekly basis.
Rite Multimedia showed yet another unparallel organization of the game in the West African Country and for the various major stakeholders who witnessed the competition; it was business-as-usual for the Accra based company which has been hugely credited with the revolution of the game in Ghana.
It will be recalled that the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) rewarded Rite Multimedia for the company’s contribution to the development and promotion of the game at the Association’s 35th Awards Ceremony in Accra.
The young entrepreneur, whose brainchild has seen the heightened interest of the game, expects the mushrooming talent to blossom into stardom in the foreseeable future.
He told basketballghana.com: ‘After watching these young ones play with such attitude and ability, I’ve no doubt in my mind the sky will be the limit for them if they continue in this drive’.
‘We at Rite Multimedia are very proud of their performance and especially to Kaneshie who defied all odds to become champions. Indeed all the pre-match talk and analysis really didn’t put them in good stead to stage a claim for the title. But I guess they’ve proved critics wrong and they’re indeed worthy winners’.
He doffed his heart out to Indomie Instant Noodles who continuously support the game in Ghana.
‘I want to say a big thank you to Indomie Instant Noodles for believing in the dream and given us financial support for the competition. Without them the competition wouldn’t have been possible and so we ‘Ayekoo’ to them’
‘It’s our prayer and wish that they continue to help us build these players into future stars for Ghana’. he concluded
