Popular Ghanaian dancing pallbearers and popular who became internet celebrities overnight when the deadly Coronavirus appeared in Ghana have listed the footballers they will like to carry to their final resting place.
According to Benjamin Aidoo, the leader of the Ghana dancing pallbearers, he dreams of "driving" home Brazillian football legend Ronaldinho and Argentine football legends Diego Maradona and Messi to their resting place when they pass on.
“I wish them long life, of course, but if I had that chance, I dream of driving Ronaldinho to his last home! Then Maradona and finally Messi. Ronaldinho is a player who has always impressed me. It would be a tribute from the dancer that I am to the dancer that he was on the field,” Benjamin Aidoo said in a story sighted on Celebritiesbuzz.
As a Barca fan, he stated that he finds it difficult celebrating the success of Luis Suarez – the man who kicked Ghana out of the 2010 World Cup with his last-gasp handball on the line to deny a goal.
“I’m divided. I am ashamed. I feel so bad. Whenever I see this player, even when I hear his name, Suarez, I am sad. Because a hand from Suarez made my Ghana team return home without being able to play in the semi-finals, which was terrible."
“We have a saying here for Suarez. The name Suarez means impossible. If you want to achieve something or go somewhere and Suarez is there, it means that you will not succeed. If you really want something and Suarez is there, you can never reach it.” he said.
The resulting penalty from Suarez’s handball was missed by Asamoah Gyan, Ghana’s top striker and record goalscorer.
Despite Gyan's many accomplishments, Aidoo says many still haven’t forgiven him.
According to Benjamin, the group gets clients from different locations requesting for their performance at the funerals of their beloved relatives.
Aidoo mentioned that the group is made up of about 100 employees who are trained to add drama and colour to clients' funerals according to their specifications.
