Former skipper of the Blackstars, tornado Stephen Appiah, has lost his dear mother. He took to instagram to announce the sudden demise of his mother. Therefore, he has cancelled his birthday football Gala which would have brought together assembly of former Ghanaian internationals and active players to the Wembley Park at Kotobabi, Accra.
Madam Comfort Afua Aidoo died at the age of 73 years on Saturday afternoon.
He wrote this heartbroken message on his Instagram page:
“Today is my birthday and I should be celebrating but instead I’m mourning. Mourning the very person who gives me so much love and joy. For I always see 24th December as a day to celebrate you instead of me because you made it possible.
“This day was never complete without me showing you how much I love and appreciate all you have done for me. There was no birthday without the kiss on your cheeks.
“Why you chose to leave me the same week I celebrate my birthday is what I’m struggling to understand,”
