Football star Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor has warmed the hearts of social media users with his humility.
The Togolese international is regarded as one of the richest African football stars but he has always had some special affection for the poor.
Adebayor has released photos of himself and many Ghanaian celebrities including social media users have been speaking well about the former Arsenal man.
In the photos sighted by YEN.com.gh, Adebayor left his mansion and all his money to mingle with the people trying to make ends meet on the streets.
From the photos, Adebayor, wearing a simple outfit is seen buying coconut on the street as he smiled with the seller.
Many rich people in Africa will not do what Adebayor has done all because of their lavish lifestyles.
Adebayor captioned the photos: "SEA, there is no respect for others without humility in one self. After buying some coconut from this wonderful couple, we spent some time talking about their day to day. It is truly inspiring to hear these stories and to know how hard my brothers and sisters work. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, what is important is your attitude towards it and how positive you are every day. "
Adebayor's photos have attracted heartwarming messages some celebrities including Stonebwoy:
After seeing the photos, Stonebwoy heaped praises on Adebayor: "Blessings bro to keep inspiring these young ones."
