MTN Arsenal Q&A Session with Diehard Gunners: Meeting Danny Welbeck, Gisting with Koscielny, Mustafi
“What is the universe expanding to if it is constantly expanding? And what’s on the very outer edge as it expands?” Don’t ask me. I don’t know too. What you just read is one of the several questions Danny Welbeck had to answer during the MTN Arsenal Question and Answer session that held yesterday at MTN Nigeria’s HQ.
It’s not every time you get to meet your favorite football stars, sit them down and ask all the questions you’ve been longing to ask them. But if you’re an MTN customer, especially if you subscribe to weekly updates on your favorite football club, then you get such luxuries almost every time.
Yesterday, MTN hosted a live Question and Answer session for eleven diehard Arsenal fans to ask three Arsenal first team players Laurent Koscielny; Danny Welbeck and defender, Shkodran Mustafi any question they choose to.
As you’d expect, the questions went from harmless ones like “How did you feel scoring the Winner at OT in Mar 2015” which was posed to Welbeck to funny questions like “Danny, given your Ghanaian heritage, Nigerian Jollof or Ghana’s?” and then to the very weird ones that could get you in trouble like “have y’all ever planned a coup against Arsene Wenger?” It was indeed a fun time and good opportunity for the fans to catch up with the players.
The fun was limited to just the “ 11” though as MTN also gave away free tickets to numerous fans online. Arsenal fans online were asked to tweet their questions using hashtag #MTNArsenal #AskTheGunners. Those with the most interesting questions got to attend the live event too.
In all, it was a fun experience for everyone present as it was an avenue to connect with new people of shared interests, in this case Arsenal FC, and also to enjoy the thrill of a live interaction with the players we only get to watch on TV. There was also plenty refreshment to go round so the event was a complete 100 for me.
