Writer and reporter for sportscrusader.com, Sheikh Tophic Sienu has been adjudged the Student Writer of the Year by the Student’s Representative Council of the Christian Service University College in Kumasi for the 2014/15 academic year.
Sheikh Tophic who started writing as a freelance sports journalist in 2007 for the Graphic Sports became a blogger afterwards before becoming a writer for Sports Crusader in August 2014, and has since been a dedicated writer for the website.
Sheikh Tophic, who is a level 400 student of Communications Studies at the University majoring in Print Journalism, contested for the award with four other journalists but was adjudged the Best Writer for his outstanding service in the field of sports for the website and for Ghanaians in general.
On his part, after receiving the award, the soft spoken Sheikh Tophic said, “I must first of all thank the organisers of this event for just nominating me among other up and coming journalist for the category of Student Writer of the year. That alone is an honour.”
“I never dreamt of this day but the platform offered me by sportscrusader.com, anchored by Chief Larry Opare Otoo (the CEO) and Jeffrey Asare (Managing Editor), has made it possible for me to be counted among winners of this envious award. I say a very big thank you to you all and May Allah bless you all abundantly”.
“I cannot afford to relegate acknowledging the hardwork of my siblings to the background, as well as colleague journalists who guided and supported me to realize this day, especially my wife, Rawlat Muntaka. To them also, I say May Allah reward them bountifully”.
“To my lecturers too, I say thank you and Allah bless you all and finally to remind you that the best web portal in the world of sports is nothing but sportscrusader.com”.
