Renowned gospel musician who is noted for his monster hit ‘Baba’ said the FA should not waits for players to die before ‘putting on the show’.

This is what he posted;

Dear GFA @chris_atsu finally laid to rest. Let me just say this though… Let this be mindset reform and attitude change… I know our President @ghana_fa_official will do things differently

I heard in recent interviews people say that he was the Messi of Ghana… Well you guys removed him fast, while Messi is still playing the World Cup… Messi is 35 and Astu was 31…

Let’s learn how to make players feel important while they’re alive. We shouldn’t wait for something to happen to them before we take on their funeral expenses and all that.

We know that most of the players get injured during their international duties and it is not surprising that they end up losing their position, in their club teams and also in the national teams… That is why players like @thomaspartey5 would prefer to put their in the club instead of national teams…

@jakaminko was in his prime when he got injured playing for Ghana and suddenly everyone forgot about him… He ended up playing for a lower division Turkish team, who had to fight for the money they owed him…

Those teams from lower divisions in Turkey are called playing to survive and stay in shape.. the clubs know it and that’s why they let the players down

Heard the club’s tribute reading, he told the manager he either plays or goes to see his family…if only he could turn back time…it shows how committed he was to his career…champion, you died like a hero and you scored his last goal… he cannot be forgotten by the club… rest well… his sending off was beautiful
