Mohamed Kamara a farmer at Songo on Saturday screamed with joy and laughter after he was informed by MC Abu Bakarr Kanu that he had won a million leones from the Celtel weekly ‘Win a House promo’ held at the National Stadium Car Park.
Mr Kamara said over the phone “I am a poor poor farmer residing in Songo. I am very happy for this prize which I will use to buy more crops and add to my farming.”
The farmer who disclosed that he takes care of his family by using the proceeds from the cassava, corn and groundnut that he cultivates, said “this will take me a long way in my farming.”
