Ghanaian professional footballer, Asamoah Gyan, on November 22, 2015, celebrated his 30th birthday in grand style at his $3 million ‘La Basilica de Baby Jet’ mansion.
The festivity, which marked a great day in the life of the Shanghai SIPG’s striker, was well-attended by high profile personalities. During the celebration, the Black Stars’ captain announced his age – claiming he was 30 years old.
However, Mr. Bernard Kwaku Gyan, father of Asamoah Gyan, says his son is throwing pure brown dust into the eyes of the public.
According to him, he was extremely shocked when his son announced he had just turned 30. He therefore advised the public not to pay attention to what his son said because there’s no iota of truth in it.
“Don’t mind him. He’s just saying what he feels. Actually, he turned 30 ten years ago. I know what I’m talking about because I gave birth to him. This is a clear case of the Cedi – Dollar relationship. I have no idea why his ‘football age’ keeps depreciating against his real age like that. The Ghana Football Association (GFA) must set up a commission of inquiry to critically look into this,” Mr Kwaku Gyan said.
According to him, he nearly took the microphone from Asamoah to announce his real age during the event.
“I couldn’t help it when he announced he was 30. I got up on my feet, wanted to walk up to him and tell him to speak the truth and be free. Once again, nobody should mind him,” Mr Gyan added.
