In a recent post on social media, Adebayor disclosed they bought coconut valued at GHC2.00 for GHC200.00 and also noted that he ''offered to match the total amount of sales that day.''
He wrote: ''Usually, one coconut goes for 2GH Cedis, but for that day we paid 200GH Cedis per coconut. I offered to match the total amount of sales that day.
To his surprise, more and more celebrities kept arriving and a huge crowd assembled by his stand.
@hisense_ghana also joined the party and made a huge contribution. At the end of the day, we made the count. Words cannot describe the feeling, when I saw the emotion on his face as he realized the total amount of money raised that day. I would like to thank everyone that joined me in supporting this man’s business (Virgin Fresh Coconut). We rise by lifting others!''
