Popular Nigerian comedian AY is in Turkey for the Samuel Eto'o charity match which is meant to take place tomorrow. AY is in a company of many football stars that include two of Nigeria's great Kanu Nwankwo and Jay Jay Okocha.
Furthermore, ex-Barcelona players Samuel Eto'o, Eric Abidal, Carles Puyol and Deco headed to Turkey together on Friday for the charity match organized by Eto'o himself.
Famous football stars will come to Turkey as part of the 10th anniversary of the Samuel Eto'o Private Foundation and play a match against Turkey's stars in Antalya. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will also participate in the match.
Samuel Eto'o will lead superstars including Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez, Diego Maradona, Eden Hazard, Francesco Totti, Michael Essien, Xavi, Jay Jay Okocha, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Andres Iniesta, Demba Ba, Didier Drogba and Arda Turan.
Argentine star Messi is expected to arrive in Antalya on Saturday but has cancelled a scheduled flight to Turkey after the country was the subject of a military coup.
The world's best player was due to take part in former teammate Samuel Eto'o's benefit match in Antalya along with a host of other stars.
Fleeing Turkish president Recep Erdogan was also reportedly set to attend and play in the star-studded fixture, with Eto'o full of praise for the country's leader.
All of the funds raised from the match, organized by the World Tourism Forum, on July 16 will be donated to the Samuel Eto'o Foundation.
