Being his first title in 2019, an elated Olapade told NationSport آ that he would be inspired to do well in Port Harcourt after the title. “This is a good motivation for me going to Port Harcourt this week. I played against some of the best players in Ghana and I am sure that I am now in the right frame of mind going into any tournament, now having started the year with a drought. And I am so elated winning my first title in 2019 and I look forward to more successes this year, particularly on the African Tour,â€‌ Olapade said.
