When he was at his peak, he signed mouthwatering deals with clubs like Saudi giants Ittihad and Al Shabab and German side Hoffenheim.
As expected, Tagoe has acquired lots of properties and he has many investments. Tagoe can boast of many mansions and expensive cars.
According to reports gathered by YEN.com.gh, he was one-time financier of dancehall sensation Stonebwoy and musical group, Praye.

He eventually moved to Saudi Arabian side Ittihad. After six months, Tagoe moved to another Middle East country, this time to United Arab Emirates and signed for Al Shabab Al Arabi Club.
This prompted Midtjylland to report Tagoe to FIFA as they believed the club had loaned him to Ittihad. After a year and 10 league goals for Al Shabab.
Tagoe returned to Saudi Arabia to play for Ettifaq. He spent two years with Ettifaq, performing especially well during the 2009 AFC Champions League with eight goals in six matches.
