10908867.295Actor John Dumelo, one of the celebrities sent to Brazil to champion Ghana’s off-the-field campaign at the 2014 World Cup has said their main purpose of promoting Ghana at the tournament was achieved greatly.

He said as far as he was concerned, their job of promoting Ghana in Brazil as part of a volunteer work was done.
