Comic actor turned footballer Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as Lil Win, made his competitive debut for Division One League club New Edubiase on Tuesday.
Lil Win made a second-half substitute appearance in New Edubiase’s 2-0 victory against Unisatr Academy.
His introduction triggered excitement at the Nana Gyamfi Park in Berkwai.
Lil Win signed a two-year contract in October, after impressing on trials, according to New Edubiase owner Abdul Salam Yakubu.
The deal includes Lil Win serving as the club’s brand ambassador.
“It’s time to play football. I have signed two seasons for New Edubiase United”, Lil Win said in October.
“I currently play in the Number 7 position or any position in the midfield. The coach is the one who requested me. The CEO wants me as the ambassador and the coach also wants me to play.
“I can play the first 45 minutes and with time I can play the full 90 minutes. As long as I play for New Edubiase United no team will beat us.”
New Edubiase’s aim this season is to top their zone and return to the top-flight. They have recorded four wins in five games so far in ZoNE II.
In 2012, they shocked everyone by winning the MTN FA Cup and competing in the CAF Confederation Cup. It remains their greatest achievement to date.
