According to Mr Abraham, ‘‘I can categorically say that I am defeating Timi Dakolo. Timi should come ready defeated or he should better stay away! If he comes, he will be blown out! He is lucky I wasn’t there 2 years ago when the last edition of the COSON Week was held. I do not need to go to church to pray to any god to dethrone Timi. The people who think I am only good in football are in for a shocker’’.
In a similar vein, box office record breaking movie producer and A–list comedian, Ayo Makun, popular known as AY has also declared his intention to blow out Timi Dakolo at this year’s COSON All Stars Table Tennis Blow-Out.

I beat him recently at one of our game’s hangout Please let everyone in Lagos come and watch as Timi Dakolo tastes the dust!”
These challenges follow a series of previous challenges including that of movie director Lanre Falana who laughed off reports that Timi Dakolo will once again go home undefeated. ‘Timi who? Asks Falana. The director assured fans that while he may have just come close 2 years ago, he is certain that come this November 2, he will be declared champion.
