The Ghanaian footballer in an interview granted to Accra-based Starr FM has revealed that whenever he is abroad, he listens to songs by Ghanaian acts. The footballer who has come under a barrage of issues in his football career stated that afrobeat was really competing with other international music styles. He said some of his international teammates and players from other clubs play and listen to afrobeats which is now “everywhere”.
The 2014 World Cup Ghana Black star player said he admired songs from Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and the Dancehall King, Shatta Wale. These three acts are arguably in the forefront of hiplife and rap music. The player said he had many of their songs on his IPod and listened to them all the time.

The footballer is married to Menaye Donkor. She has recently been given exclusive rights to host the Miss Universe Pageant in Ghana come September this year.
