Sonandzi further highlighted the purpose of a friendly match. “Our listeners always hear our voices on radio but they do not get an opportunity to see us so we wanted to have that interaction with them. We also wanted to give a sense of hope to our listeners since they have been locked up by the lockdown due to Covid-19,” he said.
