A physically challenged journalist and commentator, Johnson Antwi who goes by the popular moniker King Baggio was for the first time allowed into the inner perimeter of the Cape Coast Stadium due to his impairment to run commentary of the game between Ghana and Ethiopia.
The journalist also came to the Cape Coast stadium in the new electric wheelchair donated by Black Stars midfielder, Mubarak Wakaso, the match-winner against Ethiopia. In a viral photo posted, Johnson Antwi is seen doing his work in much comfort.
As a reminder, Johnson Antwi aka King Baggio’s story went viral after Tv3 sports journalist, Kelvin Owusu Ansah, documented his struggles in executing the job he loves the most during the game between Hearts and Kotoko in June.
The story grabbed the attention of Mubarak Wakaso, who donated the electric wheelchair and some cash to the journalist.
“I thank Media General for airing my story. Since then, it has impacted a lot on my life. I also thank Mubarak Wakasu, I am so grateful. I doff my heart for him and may God bless him in whatever he does,” Johnson Antwi told Tv3 during the presentation.
