Legendary striker, Asamoah Gyan, is eager to meet ‘mona mo bl3’ originator after declaring that the former Black Stars captain is his favourite player.
Gyan is a global name due to his heroics when playing for the Ghana national team, the Black Stars.
However, it’s still heart-warming for us to see Ghanaians express their admiration for and appreciation of the striker.
The player tweeted a video of Samuel Kofi Ampofo, who rose to fame in Ghana with his popular catchphrase ‘mona mo bl3’, naming Gyan as his favourite player.
Mr Ampofo said in an interview with Kofi TV that he had not met the former Sunderland and the Al Ain striker but admired him a lot.
Gyan tweeted that he was “so touched” by the acknowledgement, adding that he would like to meet him.
