Fred Amata At 50 (Part 2): BATTLE OF THE STARS (Novelty Football Match - Team ex-Super Eagles Vs Team Nollywood ; Governor Fashola To Captain Fred's Team Nollywood)

As you may already be aware, Nollywood is marking the 50th birthday of one of its legends, FRED AMATA, with THREE star studded events.

The first event, AN EVENING WITH FRED AMATA, which was hosted by City People Magazine, took place on the 4th of May 2013 at Abibiz Restaurant & Lounge in V.I. 

I attended the classy event and observed that it was well attended by heavyweights in the entertainment industry and Fred's beautiful beau, Mor Okonkwo, was there to support him. City People also presented Fred with a Lifetime Achievement Award

The pièce de résistance of the evening was when Mr Zik Zulu Okafor got up to give a speech about Fred Amata. Zik Zulu, a well respected orator, eloquently delivered a eulogy about Fred and the entire Amata family that would make historians envious. He was given a well deserved standing ovation.

Now, here comes the second part of Fred Amata's 50th birthday event, BATTLE OF THE STARS which will give to charity and honor Nollywood Icon Fred Amata on his 50th birthday.

The actor, producer and director is kicking off his birthday celebrations with the country’s foremost kicking game –  Football. In a game tagged “Battle Of The Stars” Fred is recruiting two killer teams.

The first team is Team Nollywood which is made up of Fred Amata, Ekpenyong Bassey, Okey Bakassi, Basorge Tariah, AY comedian, Moses Inwang, Francis Onwochei, Sexy Steel, Segun Arinze, Baba Dee, Frank Edoho, Uncle Speed and many others

The second team is Team ex-Super Eagles and is made up of all the ex-Super Eagles stars who won the 1994 Nations Cup.

Fred Amata and his star-studded Team Nollywood have been practising at the National Stadium in Surulere with their trainer, Coach Shuaibu Amodu, to prep them up against threats like Kanu Nwankwo, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Henry Nwosu, Ike Shorumu, Jonathan Akpoborie, Emma Babayaro, Austin Eguavoen, Peter Rufai and a host of ex-Super Eagles’ Players, who are already excited about the challenge. 

Saving the best for last: The Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola is also going to captain Fred's Team Nollywood and double as player at the star-studded novelty match! Yessur!!!

The match is slated for Wednesday, 15th May 2013 at Campus Square.

As a special tribute to the movie icon, there will be a stage performance of "THE KING MUST DANCE NAKED" Bimbo Manuel, Kate Henshaw, Monalisa Chinda, Segun Arinze Keppy Bassey, Francis Onwochei and many others. There will also be a special appearance by the celebrant FRED AMATA doling out his acting skills on stage.
A white tie dinner features red carpet. To be held at the Muson Centre on the 18th of May 2013.
