NAIROBI, Kenya, March 21 – Having been in the international stage, lifting the 2016 Standard Chartered World Trophy at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, the Capital FM football team is charged to school Ghetto Radio on football matters when the two sides clash in a friendly match on Friday night.

The match will be played under floodlights at Nairobi’s Grogon artificial turf next to Globe Cinema Roundabout, kicking off at 8pm as the two teams wrestle for supremacy in a match dubbed ‘battle of the city’.

Capital FM, who holds the bragging rights having spanked Ghetto Radio 3-0 when the two radio stations last met at the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) Inter Media in October last year, are determined to continue their dominance, this time aiming to take the Ghetto boys to ‘Babylone’.

“We are World and Africa champions so for us we are coming tomorrow to show Ghetto Radio where they belong, they have never beaten us, last time it was 3-0, this time let them come prepared to collect not less than five goals,” a confident Capital FM skipper Lassie Atrash underscored.

Earlier on Atrash’s counterpart at Ghetto Radio Paul Ojenge who is fondly referred as ‘Polosa Namba Tano’ in his Saturday Sports Show Offside dreamt of thrashing the Best Mix of Music.

“We are confident of a good result as the team has had enough practice through other friendlies and Capital FM is a strong team who will present a well needed challenge to my team but this time will pin them down having lost to them once,” Polosa, who featured for former Kenyan Premier League side, Nairobi City Stars in his heydays vowed.

The friendly is anticipated to build a strong relationship between the two Radio Stations that rule the airwaves in the capital city.

“The main objective of the friendly is to bond and share ideas because we are in the same industry. We are looking forward to having a good time because this is one of the many that we will have,” Capital FM Team Manager Duncan Kikata stated.

On the other hand, Ghetto Radio Team Manager Mojezz outlined that the match is crucial to the team in building their experience.

“This a good experience for the team because it will boost the morale of the players for going against a strong team like Capital FM and this time, we are prepared to win the game,” Mojezz remarked.
