Dickson Afoakwa’s age became a topical issue on social media a week ago when his new club Kumasi Ashanti Kotoko unveiled him.
According to the club, the experienced midfielder is just 23-year-old.
The announcement of Dickson Afoakwa shocked many especially when he looked way older than his age. Many started reading meanings into the announcement.
The offensive player had been training with the Porcupine Warriors under the supervision of Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum in the preseason.
The former Dinamo Brest player has impressed the technical handlers and has been handed a three-year deal to revive this career. Dickson Afoakwa had been without a club for the past two years since he last played for Belarusian club Dinamo Brest and was sent on loan to FC Gomel.
For some, the player was older and perhaps had reduced his age, for others, Dickson Afokawa was not smart enough to twist his age because his hairline had exposed him and revealed his real age as 50.
Ghbase shared his two pictures of Dickson Afoakwa on our social media platform and the comments confirmed the general feelings of football-loving fans and Ghanaians that Dickson Afokawa could never be 23-year-old.
This is a new photo on the internet where Dickson Afokawa is pictured in the company of one of his fans. Clearly, the photo looked as though Dickson is older than his fan but in abstract reality, his fan is younger than he is since he is said to be just 23.
