The memorial service of the ex-Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi has been fixed for July 23 in Kempton Park, Johannesburg in South Africa.

The event which is being organized by the friends of the decease will hold six days before his official state funeral in Nigeria.

The ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper gave reasons for their idea.

In his words, “Nigerians and other legends who cannot make the trip to the funeral ceremony taking place in Nigeria will have an opportunity to honour the ‘Big Boss’,” he told SuperSport.

“Keshi won the AFCON 2013 here in South Africa and has a lot of friends and fans here.

“We are in touch with Neil Tovey, Kalusha Bwalya, and a host of other legends who will grace and speak at the service

It would be recalled that Keshi passed away, on June 7 in Benin City, Nigeria, after a brief illness.
