Ykee Benda, one of the renown Arsenal fans amongst local celebrities, has staked Ugx 100,000 to a lucky fan if the London football club wins tonight in the Europa League.
Arsenal verses Spanish club Villarreal FC in the 2nd leg of their Europa League semifinal clash at the Emirates Stadium in London, England.
In the first leg, the English club lost 1-2 to Unai Emery’s team and they set out to overturn the deficit to stand a chance to play in the Europa League final to be played on 26th May in Gdańsk, Poland.
Ugandan singer Ykee Benda has always confessed his love for Arsenal and often lets his emotions show with each result that the Gunners register on weekly basis.
Tonight, he hopes for an Arsenal win and for them to qualify to the final and if that happens, Ykee is ready to gift one of his followers with Ugx100k (about USD28).
The Mpaka Records boss made the pledge through his Twitter account early on Thursday morning. He also asked Arsenal fans to kneel down and pray for his team.
If Arsenal qualify tonight I will send a random person/fan 100k on the spot.Ykee Benda
We hope it does not end in tears!
