Nollywood actress Chioma Akpotha has poked fun at her Ghanaian counterpart Jackie Appiah by asking her to come and carry her ‘enkle’- the dancing referee from Ghana who has taken the internet by storm.
This was after Mike Ezruonye has shared a video of the popular referee whose name is Alexander Cofie aka Somo doing some crazy legwork during a football match recently.
The Nollywood actor shared the video writing; “FOCUS on the Happiest Referee in Africa from GHANA ”
The video evoked reactions from followers of Mike including some Nigerian celebs. Chioma who also came across the post, tagged Jackie Appiah to come for her uncle, a comment which added another layer of humour to the post.

Somo recently consolidated his soaring popularity after former Liverpool and France forward Djibril Cisse posted his video on his Instagram stories. The former French forward shared a video of the referee dancing, accompanied by the caption: “Best referee ever.”
He has previously spoken to Pulse.com.gh in an exclusive interview where disclosed that he is not a licensed professional referee. According to him, he only officiates community matches and other games that are not sanctioned by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
“I officiate matches in communities within Accra. If I’m invited for such matches, I’ll gladly honour it,” he told Pulse.com.gh.
“I’m not a professional referee but I officiate exhibition matches for some Division One and Division Two teams.” Referee Somo also intimated that he was ready to extend his dancing performances into music videos and parties.
“I can dance in music videos. If you want me to perform at your parties too, I can do that. You can contact me on my social media handles,” he added.
