Gyan is expected to be the star pundit when the Black Stars are playing.
He follows in the footsteps of former Ghanaian footballers Sammy Osei Kuffour and Laryea Kingston who have worked as pundits for the South Africa-based South Africa-based Pan-Africa channel.
Kingston was in Johannesburg in 2019 for the Egypt Afcon while the Bayern Munich legend was a regular until 2018.
Gyan was not included in Milovan Rajevac's squad, missing out on Afcon for the first time since 2008.
