Distributors of TVS motorcycles and keke, Simba Group, who are also the official sponsors of the Super Eagles, added great fanfare and celebratory spectacle to the departure of the team to Egypt for the upcoming African Cup of Nations.

The TVS King Keke and TVS HLX motorcycles, branded in the national team’s colours, led a motorcade style procession, surrounding the team bus as it made its way from the Golden Tulip Hotel camp in Asaba to the airport on Sunday.

The ceremonial procession, which attracted football fans on the streets and some residents of the Delta State capital, was a cynosure of all eyes and was described by onlookers as a befitting way of encouraging the Super Eagles as they commence their mission to capture a fourth AFCON title, when the Nations Cup kicks off on June 21.

Explaining the spectacle, Simba Group’s Karthik Govindarajan was confident the colourful send-forth ceremony would go a long way to spur the Super Eagles to success at the continental football fiesta.

“This colourful parade is our own special way of showing appreciation to the Super Eagles and furthering our association with football in Nigeria. We wish the Super Eagles all the best for the upcoming tournament and hope that they come back with the cup,” Govindarajan said.

The TVS tricycle procession, marked the second time in two years that the Official Keke and Motorcycles of the Super Eagles has staged such a remarkable event. It would be recalled that last year, TVS organized a similar send-forth for the Super Eagles when they were departing for the Russia 2018 World Cup, in Abuja.

In a related development, TVS also rewarded Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel, with a TVS HLX+ motorcycle for emerging as the Most Valuable Player in the international friendly between Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
