Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Ghana’s Vice President, was filmed in a viral video demonstrating astonishing football talents previously unknown to the public.
Dr. Bawumia may be seen toe-tapping like a professional footballer in many situations.
The 59-year-old statesman, wearing spectacles, performed the rainbow maneuver, which involves flipping the ball over one’s head from in between the feet.
In the last image, the Vice President is shown rousing support for the Ghana Black Stars with a ball against his waist on his left: “The time has arrived for the Black Stars to take on the world.”
“We have a group of talented players, who have been selected and they cannot be intimidated by anyone,” he added.
“I want to urge the Black Stars to go on and play their hearts out for Mother Ghana,” he motivated. “We can stand the world, we have done it before and we can do it again.”
“They should go out and emulate the historic deeds of their predecessors,” the Vice President stressed and prayed: “God bless you all, we can do it. Go, Ghana, go! Go, Black Stars, go!”
In the background for the video, 5Star award-winning signee King Promise’s ‘Black Stars’ cheer song featuring the Ghana Football Association was playing.
