Stephen Keshi’s Memorial Service Scheduled for July 23


A memorial service in honour of former Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, will hold on July 23 in Kempton Park, Johannesburg in South Africa.

The Big Boss passed on June 7 in Benin City, Nigeria, after a brief illness.

The event is being put together by the ‘Friends of Keshi’ and takes place six days before his official state funeral in Nigeria.

Former Eagles goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, explained the motive behind their idea.

“Nigerians and other legends who cannot make the trip to the funeral ceremony taking place in Nigeria will have an opportunity to honour the ‘Big Boss’,” he told SuperSport.

“Keshi won the AFCON 2013 here in South Africa and has a lot of friends and fans here.

“We are in touch with Neil Tovey, Kalusha Bwalya, and a host of other legends who will grace and speak at the service.”
