Ghanaian striker and former Black Stars’ Captain, Asamoah Gyan, has been seen in a video tape displaying huge sums of money after breaking his ‘susu’ box [money box] at the end of the year 2020.
‘Susu’ [money] box is a known alternative form of savings among Ghanaians. Initially performing it’s role as piggy bank for children the habit has devoured the minds of adults who are obsessed with the saving method.
Asamoah Gyan, who has a lot of investments in Ghana and many believe to be ‘rich’, was least expected to be involved in saving money in a ‘susu’ box, but he has proven that he is a bit conservative to things he was used to growing up as a child.
“Little drops of water make a mighty ocean ooo. One one cedi, you can also do it. I started saving six months ago and look at it. We will count the money.
“Show the money box to them, so that people would know it is a money box. Afterwards, this money is going to the bank. We will do some donations, buy items for donations and the rest will go to the bank.
“You can also be motivated by this. Do it according to your strength. Don’t kill yourself. Even coins, one cedi, 10, 100, 50 would do.” Gyan said in the video.
He made most of his riches during his days at Al Ain from 2011 to 2015, before joining Shanghai SIPG, where he was paid $250,000 a week and emerged as the highest-paid African footballer.
The former Black Stars striker after an illustrious career abroad has returned home and he is currently playing for Legon Cities – a local premiership team in Ghana.
The 35-year-old is, however, yet to make his first start of the Ghana Premier League season, despite having been used as a substitute due to injury worries.
