The two parties signed a six-month deal worth Sh36.7 million which will see a minimum of two matches aired on Bamba TV every week.

Radio Africa Chief Executive Officer Patrick Quarcoo said: “For us at Radio Africa this confirms our commitment to growing local sports and is another direction in meeting the needs of our viewers on Bamba Sport channel 6. We are delighted to partner with the KPL and FKF in this partnership that brings the best of our local soccer to lovers of the game in our country.”
