I was chatting with a friend last night about her dancing, found out she was doing Ghanian dance classes and without a second thought, Kevin Prince Boateng popped into my head. Kevin is a Ghanian football player plying his trade with Italian giants AC Milan and is probably the most prolific player after the great Tony Yeboah from Leeds United in the mid nineties.
Being German born, Kevin could have opted to play for the European juggernauts but chose to represent Ghana instead. His younger brother, Jerome, chose to play for Germany. In a weird twist of fate, both brothers were called up to the national squads for their respective nations for the 2010 World Cup and their teams were drawn in the same pool. It was the first time in history that two brothers have played on opposite teams in the World Cup and Germany won the match 1-0.
Everyone was surprised when AC Milan bought Kevin from Portsmouth in the summer of 2010 but he has since established himself as one of Milan’s greatest attacking threats. His dynamic pace and the way he “dances” around opponents is my preferred kind of Ghanian dance I reckon.
And it seems like the guy CAN seriously dance.
And he can sing too. Is there anything the Prince can’t do!?
