Late Christopher Nana Opoku’s wife celebrates him on his birthday

Late sports journalist’s wife, Vivian Opoku, has marked her late husband’s birthday with an emotional post on social media.

Six months after succumbing to cancer-related illnesses, the late sports journalist Christopher Nana Opuku’s wife, Vivian, has expressed how much he meant to her, and how much she still misses him through a post on social media.

In a heartfelt message dedicated to her late husband, Vivian Treasure Opoku expressed how it’s difficult for her to pretend to be brave on his birthday, which is the first one she will observe without the man who fathered her three kids.

Christopher Nana Opoku died aged 41, after a four year battle with cancer. He enjoyed an 18-year career in sports journalism that began in LUV FM in Kumasi and saw him cover major tournaments like the 2008 African Cup of Nations (CAN 2008).

CHRISTOPHER NANA OPOKU ..

I’ve your home made cake ready… I have your favourite wine and the table set … sitting here waiting..
it feels like Chris have gone outside Accra/Ghana to do commentary… and he ‘ll be coming back ….. am waiting Chris.. Will you be coming back…My love?

Can you hear me on your cloud, Chris?

I miss the strength you brought me. And the comfort it gave.

And on your birthday, my love, it’s so hard, pretending to be brave.

But I have found hidden courage. And it helps to see me through.

It quietens me and protects me. And I know it comes from you.

Here on earth we shared a life.

And as happy as it could be, I never took for granted, all you meant to me.

So I shall spend your birthday dreaming that you were here,

Helping me to wipe every silent tear.

As I shed some birthday tears typing, just remember I love you and forever will

You, Chris, are IRREPLACEABLE

GOD HAS YOU IN HIS KEEPING. I HAVE YOU IN MY HEART.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN CHRISTOPHER NANA OPOKU.

PLEASE COME BACK … PLEASE

Kwesi Appiah Should Add More Experienced Players To Black Stars – Vorsah

The 2010 World Cup star gives his thoughts on how the Black Stars could be made stronger.

Ghana international Isaac Vorsah wants Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah to bolster his squad with experienced players.

The 58-year-old coach has been on a rebuilding exercise since assuming duty in May last year.

With the team failing in their attempt to turn around their poor start to the qualifiers for the World Cup, consequently missing the ongoing final tournament in Russia, Vorsah reckons some few old guards will make the current set-up a formidable force.

“All I can say about the current Black Stars is that coach Kwesi Appiah should maintain this squad and balance it with one or two experienced players because experience is very important in football,” the 30-year-old centre-back, who currently plays for Saudi club Ohod Al-Medina, told Happy FM.

“It is not just about turning up on the pitch to play.

“However, I’m happy with the work of the boys so far.

“Everybody knows Ghana is good when it’s comes to football, so with a little push, everything will be well with our national team.”

Ghana, who settled for a 2-2 draw with World Cup-bound Iceland in June, return to action in September when they take on Kenya in 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

Aside from representing Ghana at the Afcon, Vorsah played for the Black Stars as they reached the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Asamoah Gyan Used My Daughter For Rituals – Janet Bandu’s Father Explains Why

July 6, 2018 marked exactly four (4) years since musician Castro and his alleged girlfriend Janet Bandu disappeared mysteriously after going for a fun out with Blackstars captain Asamoah Gyan and some friends at Aqua Safari in Ada.

Since the incident happened there have been conflicting reports as to whether the musician is still alive or died alongside Janet Bandu who joined him on the Jet Ski at Ada towards the estuary on the said date.

Then came in the mystery; their bodies were not found despite the combined efforts of marine police and some ‘experienced’ local divers who frantically spent days searching to no avail- till this day, their whereabouts is still unknown.

Not even any spiritual intervention from prophets/prophetesses and fetish priests could yielded any result. However, Janet Bandu’s father, Joseph Bandu, suspects foul and strongly believes Asamoah Gyan is responsible for his daughter’s disappearance.

Speaking on Adom FM, Mr Bandu said since the disappearance of his daughter, the family has been attempting to meet Asamoah Gyan to discuss the tragedy yet he has been tossing them around and never agreeing to meet.

The distraught father is convinced given the hide and seek game the Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan is playing with him, knows the whereabouts of his daughter, Janet Bandu.

Floyd Mayweather Sued $2 Million For “Scamming” Two Africa Countries

Nigerian company Zinni Media is seeking at least $2 million in damages in a lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

According to TMZ Sports, Zinni Media alleges that Mayweather agreed to make five appearances in Nigeria and Ghana in June 2017.

While Mayweather made a video confirming he would take part in the appearances, he allegedly backed out despite Zinni Media wiring him $210,000 of the $375,000 he requested for the engagements.

Zinni Media also alleged that Mayweather agreed to reschedule the appearances for December 2017 at a cost of $550,000.

Mayweather allegedly asked for the original $210,000 to be used as part of his payment, but he backed out again and never returned the $210,000.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in California, and Zinni Media is suing for both the money Mayweather allegedly took and the damage he allegedly caused to their reputation.

Per Forbes, Mayweather is by far the highest-paid athlete in the world for 2018 at $285 million by virtue of his fight with Conor McGregor.

Also, Investopedia estimated the 41-year-old’s net worth at somewhere between $700 million and $1 billion as of January.

Mayweather is currently retired from boxing, but last year, he said UFC offered him a multi-fight deal that could be worth $1 billion if he decides to make the transition to MMA.
