Former Super Eagles’ skipper, Nwankwo Kanu is set to launch Nigeria’s first indigenous sports television station as he continues to contribute his quota to developing sports in the country, reports.

The former African Footballer of the Year, who recently held a 5-day basketball clinic in Owerri, told in an exclusive interview that he has already started the process by putting it online but wants to go official with the launch after the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

“I started Kanu Sports TV already but will go online fully after the World Cup. We hope to bring to the world major sporting events, including having our eyes on all of Nigeria’s national team camps and other major sporting events.

“For now it’s going to be on YouTube and we will have our own app; we have created Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and we are going ahead in putting things out before the World Cup and we will launch after World Cup,” Papilo said.

The former Arsenal legend further posited that it will be a giant stride for the country as he wants to bring major sporting actions and happenings to the fingertips of many Nigerians and indeed the world at large.
