The documentary, which captures the Russia 2018 experience, features a 10-second audio of Cristiano Ronaldo speaking to CRD7 founder, Angela Akua Asante.
The international football journalist, who was the only accredited Ghanaian reporter to be approved for and attend each of the seven rounds at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, sent the C. Ronaldo Daily brand and her country’s colours to Russia in top fashion.
A 28:12 minutes film directed by 4K7 Mixed Media in partnership with Nsroma TV, produced by TS Studios GH, and entitled “CRD7 World Cup documentary” has been released. It was set to hit your screens worldwide on Sunday, August 5, 2018, on Joy News TV but for a massive program scheduling glitch from the station that evening. The airing has since been rescheduled for Monday, August 6 at 14:30 GMT (bonus broadcast) and Sunday, August 12, at 19:30 GMT. Viewers located anywhere across the globe can as well tune in and watch the premiere.
“It’s basically an interview of me answering the most popular and pertinent questions that I’ve been asked since the moment I arrived in Russia on June 12,” Angela Akua Asante, also known as “Triple A”, explained.
“So there are a lot of answers in there and exclusive footage that is all mine. Viewers will be able to see Russia through my eyes. The mission was to send both my brand CRD7 and my country Ghana to Russia and then to bring back Russia to Ghana and the world.
“I believe my team and I have succeeded in doing that but I will let viewers see the documentary for themselves as it debunks the negative stereotypes painting Russian people as rude, racist, and not extroverted.
“I had a blast at the FIFA World Cup and it went beyond enjoying the football. I made friends whose warmth can literally be felt. Everything I experienced has a special place in my heart and I am happy to share all of it with everyone through this documentary.
“I’m also grateful to all those who helped me to make it happen. When I say this, I think of my mentor Keir Radnedge of AIPS who supported me in the process of applying for my FIFA Media accreditation. I also think of Gary Al-Smith of Joy News TV, and Tom Kundert of PortuGOAL.net whose expertise helped me craft my trip around the objective of seeing Cristiano Ronaldo perform at the World Cup. Travel agency Flysoulmates also did a fantastic job with logistics research.
“And there are many more people I’m thankful to – especially my admirers on social media who empowered me with their contagious enthusiasm and with the respect they have towards all the hard work my crew and I have put in this summer to create such a unique content,” Angela concluded on this matter.
Three weeks have gone by since the very end of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the time has come for the much-hyped CRD7 World Cup documentary to premiere on Ghanaian multimedia station, Joy News TV. As noted above, the documentary which has been distributed to numerous TV and digital media channels was set to air for the very first time in full on Sunday, August 5, 2018. It did, but not on Joy News TV due to a program scheduling error.
Online users can now enjoy the full documentary as it appears on our Youtube channel.
