How I Got The Name “Baby Jet” : Asamoah Gyan Reveals 

Published

on

Asamoah Gyan, the former captain of the Black Stars, has revealed the origins of his famous nickname “Baby Jet.”

Though Asamoah Gyan‘s name is well-known among Ghanaians and fans throughout the world, the nickname “Baby Jet” captures the magic and folklore surrounding Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer.

The tale of how the name came to be is told in an excerpt initially published by Joy Sports.

“Another big platform for football in the school system was the annual Milo Football Tournament. It’s a major grassroots platform and anybody aiming for big things looks forward to doing well in it.

“I remember the Milo games because I won the goal king award in the national event in Kumasi, in addition to other trophies. Aside from the Milo Tournament, I was also selected to play in the Ghana Academicals in 2001.”

“The Academicals were like a selection of the best footballers in second cycle institutions. What I remember about this experience was how, in particular, my taking of penalties improved.”

What was my game like at this point? Well, I was 17 now, and a fast, prolific goalscorer. Due to my pace, I eventually became affectionately known as Baby Jet.

The origin of the name Baby Jet is a very interesting one. Growing up, I had a very soft face. The kind most people call a ‘baby face’. “

“I was very cute physically too and so most people called me ‘Baby’. Everyone in the neighbourhood preferred that name and I guess it stuck for a very long while. The ‘Jet’ came from my speed.

“I was small but fast. My pace was blistering on the pitch and this gave me a lot of advantage in playing against the bigger boys in the neighbourhood.”

The nickname was publicized by my good friend Dan Kwaku Yeboah, a popular Ghanaian sports journalist. He told me he witnessed my pace during a match, and he simply just coined the name from the ‘Baby’ everyone called me and the speed he saw on the field.

“So, he almost always called me Baby Jet anytime we met. And then I made my debut for Ghana against Somalia in that entertaining game in 2003. After the match, the name had made rounds all over.

“I later realised Dan Kwaku Yeboah had made so much noise about the name when I came on. He literally had made the name public, and it stuck because it actually was the easiest way of describing me, the Baby Jet; young and smallish with that baby face coupled with the speed of a Jet.”

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Published

on

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
