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

on

Ghana Black Stars former captain, Stephen Appiah is a clear manifestation of what we call from grass to grace.And of course from the humble beginnings to greatness.

Stephen Appiah has worked hard for many years.From Chorkor, Accra to Turin’s Juventus.

Playing footballer from the dusty fields of local clubs in Ghana to the green pitches of several European sides, including Juventus and Fenerbahçe.

In a short video skit he took us through his humble beginnings from Chorkor to his transformation. In the videdo he described the moment as a living testimony.

Indeed, hard work pays, and now is time for the former Black Stars player to enjoy the fruits of his labour.

Appiah began his career at local club Hearts of Oak in 1995, at 15 years of age. In 1996, he had trials with Galatasaray’s youth squad but was not signed and he returned to Hearts of Oak.

In 1997, he moved abroad to join Italian Serie A side Udinese, where he initially played as a striker. He spent three seasons with the club, later changing positions during his time there, moving to a deeper midfield position. A transfer to Parma in 1999 was jeopardized by viral hepatitis, but Appiah overcame the illness to move there in the summer of 2000. After two seasons at Parma, Appiah went on loan to Brescia for the 2002–03 season. Appiah became a first-team regular for the Lombardians and scored seven times in 31 games.

Appiah’s success at Parma alerted defending Serie A champions Juventus to his talents. Juventus paid Parma €2 million in the summer of 2003 to secure Appiah’s services on loan, with an option to a permanent €6 million transfer in 2004. In 2003, Appiah finished 8th for African Footballer of the Year.

He went on to enjoy a good first season for Juventus, playing in 30 Serie A games and appearing in the Coppa Italia final. He also made his debut in the UEFA Champions League. In his second season at Juventus, Appiah played in 18 Serie A games.

Stephen Appiah is the current team manager for the Black Stars blessed and we wish him all the best.

Published

on

Black Stars goalkeepers trainer Richard Kingson has threatened to leave his post if the lack of transparency at the Ghana Football Association is not fixed.

Olele is currently pissed because his football club, Emmanuel FC, currently has a case before the GFA’s Disciplinary Committee involving possible promotion to next year’s Division One league.

According to the former Black Stars goalie, who currently serves as the team’s goalkeeper’s trainer, some elements within the FA are working to deny his team justice due to some underground deals and if that is not sorted he would gladly resign his post to ensure his team gets justice.

“I’m ready to follow this issue to the latter no matter what it takes. Even if it will take me to quit football and resign as goalkeeper’s trainer I will do it for the truth to come out” he said on Asempa Fm.

“It’s easy for me quit because I can’t be part of a system which is not transparent.

“So I plead with those who will be in charge of this case to be unbiased”. he added.

He’d probably earn more if he got a chance to move away from Turkish club Sivasspor to sign for a Premier League club.
