We all know Lilwin is one funny guy whose talent is manifested in Kumawood movies. He just passed a comment about Asamoah Gyan, captain of the Black Stars and we don’t know if it was a joke or he meant ‘business.’ Asamoah Gyan has chalked an enviable feat in the annals of football by scoring 50 goals for the Black Stars; which has etched his name in the history book.
The captain was at Accra based Joy FM on Thursday night for a radio interview, during which Lilwin joined him to revel in his achievement. It was at this juncture that the actor said he mistook the 50 which had been written on a cake to be Gyan’s real age.
This was because, to him, birthdays are noted for celebrating with cakes, since a cake cannot be used for any other celebration including burials, he sarcastically said.
Adding, he said he initially thought Asamoah Gyan was in his 30s as it had widely been reported, but when he saw the 50 on the cake, he was taken aback, and was convinced that could be Gyan’s real age.
When it was explained to Lilwin that the 50 on the cake represented the goals Gyan had scored for the national team, he congratulated him and said the milestone was not an easy achievement, since many other world class players have not been able to achieve a similar feat.
I said from the opening paragraph that I don’t know if Lilwin meant what he said because I know with ‘vim’ that Asamoah Gyan is not 30-years. He can continue deceiving the international community just to stay on playing but those close to him, including Lilwin know he’s more than that.
