Nicholas Kodjoe, son of Hollywood star Boris Kodjoe and a basketball player himself, had some advice for upcoming Ghanaian basketball players:
“I love basketball no matter what. I’m going to show up, play, and love it anytime. My message to the younger generation just starting out in basketball is, just keep working.
“You never know what’s going to happen, so you must keep your head down and keep working, and it will pay off in one way or another. You never know, so just stick to it.”
“Who’s Got Game” is an innovative sports charity founded by former basketball player Dayo Okewale, whose vision is to use basketball as a tool for social change and development.
The organization specializes in the development of basketball and aims to use sports as a tool to educate, inform, develop, and encourage healthy living through the game.
