Due to his infirmity, Johnson Antwi, also known as King Baggio, a physically challenged journalist, and commentator, was admitted for the first time into the inner perimeter of the Cape Coast Stadium to broadcast commentary of the Ghana-Ethiopia match.
The journalist also arrived at the Cape Coast stadium in Mubarak Wakaso’s new electric wheelchair, which was donated by the Black Stars midfielder who scored the game-winning goal against Ethiopia. Johnson Antwi is seen doing his work in great comfort in a viral photo.
As a reminder, Johnson Antwi aka King Baggio’s story went viral after Tv3 sports journalist Kelvin Owusu Ansah filmed his hardships in performing the job he loves the most during the Hearts-Kotoko match in June.
Mubarak Wakaso was moved by the story and offered the journalist an electric wheelchair as well as some cash.
“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.
