Young lads are always told to follow their passion.

However, in a world where playing football has become so lucrative especially in European countries, who will think of quitting the beautiful game to pursue his modeling and entrepreneurial ambitions?

The native of Akim Adusua in the Eastern region, started his career as a professional footballer with Norwegian club Strindheim TF.

He had stints with Ghana National Under 20 side and was part of the team’s camping in 2010-2011.

With this bright prospect of becoming one of Ghana’s celebrated footballers and of course adding more zeros to his bank account, one would wonder why anyone will turn his back on the game that changed the financial fortunes of the likes of Asamoah Gyan and Emmanuel Adebayor.
