“Tema has always been the place for growing talents we have the best talents in the sport-basketball- and even music. The Tema All Star Team is going to bring the most skilled dunks and crossovers which will dazzle the audience…Expect Tema to actually bring the heat” he said.

Djan fronts a deep talented roster that has several young players including Nii Moi Anum, Emmanuel Wolff, Kent Fosu and Abdul Rashid Kuta.
