Established estate developer, Net Village, a subsidiary of Net 36 Vista has presented a cheque for GH¢7,000.00 to Metro TV, owners of Original TV.
The presentation held at the office of Metro TV was in fulfilment of a cash prize for the second placed team in the recently held Media Olympics at the El-Wak Sports Stadium.
The well-organised competition, put together by Net Village in collaboration with betPawa, saw media organisations like Daily Guide, TV3, Original TV, Kantanka, Metro TV, GH Bloggers, GHOne, Starr FM and Onua FM.
The participants battled for honours in football, basketball, CEOs 100m tug-of-war, table tennis, sack race, and other disciplines.
CEO of Net Village, Dr. Bernard BNA Yartey said, “We are indeed impressed with the level of competition and fair play displayed by the media houses.
“It is the maiden edition but as you can see, it lived to its billing, We kit all the teams, the trophy is beautiful to behold, and the GH¢10,000 cash prize was what raised the stakes. Next year will be bigger, I can assure you that.”
Musician Mr. Drew endeared himself to the fans with his sleek performance. The brand ambassador for Net 36 Vista (Lakeside Village), Joseph Kingkong Agbeko, also graced the occasion.
It was Dansoman-based Kantanka TV that emerged the overall winners in the football competition after beating Original TV 3-2 on penalties.
And for their efforts, they took home a mouthwatering GH¢10,000 cash prize and a giant trophy.
TV3 emerged tops in table tennis, while GHOne won the ultimate in basketball.
