During an interview on Wontumi TV, Kumawood actor and Dabo Soccer Academy founder, Samuel Yaw Dabo explained his reason for saying he is 24 years old.
Dabo said that he was about to lie about his age when he realised that he was on a mission in Europe to find support for his football academy which demanded that he exhibits integrity and truthfulness at all times.
In an interview on Wontumi TV, the successful actor said that he learnt a lot during his stay abroad and did not expect the interview about his age which he had with Marca to "blow" and go viral.
He said that when his interviewer, a journalist from the sports media platform, Marca, asked him about his age, it was evident in the video that he hesitated for some seconds before saying he was 24 years old.

"Some of these foreigners like truth and loyalty so I decided to say I am 24 years. The interviewer then said, 'respect, respect', and from there, we continued with the interview", Dabo said.
