“Kuffour is one person who never forgets his humble beginnings and the people who helped him achieve it,” he told Asempa FM.

“Anywhere he meets me or my wife; he lets everyone know what we have done for him during his unknown days.

“This quality of his encourages some of us to do more for the current generation of amateurs and I am very proud of what he has achieved in his life.”
