Award winning actress, Yvonne Okoro rewarded the Black Queens with $500 after their 2-0 victory over Senegal in the opening match of the ongoing WAFU Zone B competition.

The screen goddess promised the reigning champions a whooping bounty of $10 000 if they qualify for the semi finals of the sub-regional tournament.

In an interview the celebrity uncloaked the reason behind the $500 reward.

“It was just $500 for them to just buy drinks and have a good time. They did well, it was 2-0 [against Senegal].

“Hopefully, that’s to motivate them to know that when they get to the semi finals their $10 000 will be waiting for them.”

Miss Yvonne will depart the capital of Cote D’Ivoire today and might return when the competition travels to the semi finals or finals.
