Nigerian football icon Nwanko Kanu made headlines after he signed up as a global ambassador for the leading crypto sports betting site Sportsbet.io.
“Papilo”, which is how he is affectionately known among his many fans, enjoyed an illustrious career during his time on the field. His accolades include winning Olympic Gold with the Super Eagles, lifting the Champions League trophy with Ajax, and enjoying a stunning Premier League career with Arsenal.
According to the football superstar, signing with Sportsbet.io was an opportunity for him to join the world of crypto. He said he had long been aware of how good crypto could be to the world of sports, as The Kanu Heart Foundation has already received a significant amount of funding in Bitcoin donations.
Celebrating a Class Act
Kanu will act as the Global Ambassador for the betting brand for a period of 4 years. During this time, his personal brand will be featured as part of several promotions and events.
According to Albert Climent, the Head of Africa at the betting giant, Kanu is a true legend of the game of football. He needs no introduction at all. He said that the brand regards his joining the team to be an absolute honor.
Last month, the betting giant hosted a special event in Lagos Nigeria. The “Ahead of the Game” event was attended by more than 400 people and included a special viewing of the Premier League game between Manchester United and Arsenal. Part of the celebration involved a 250mBTC donation made by Sportsbet.io to the football star’s Kanu Heart Foundation.
