Ghanaian actor and CEO of Dabo Soccer Academy, Samuel Yaw Dabo says he didn’t lie about his age during his interview with Marca in Spain.
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi-based Wontumi Radio, the Kumawood star explained the main reason why he didn’t lie about his age.
According to Dabo, he wanted to lie about his age but he realized that he was on a mission in Europe to seek support for his football academy which demanded that he exhibit truthfulness always.
He said that when his interviewer, a journalist from the sports media platform, Marca, asked him about his age, it was evident in the video that he hesitated for some seconds before saying he was 24 years old.
“When the white man asked me about my age, I did not want to mention it. If you watched the video, I was a bit hesitant, I wanted to change my age but I reconsidered my decision because I was there to get help for my club.
“Some of these foreigners like truth and loyalty so I decided to say I am 24 years. The interviewer then said, ‘respect, respect’, and from there, we continued with the interview”, Dabo said.
