The life of a coconut seller who has been identified as Samuel Acheampong has been touched by ex-Togolese national, Emmanuel Adebayor and some other celebrities.
Adebayor who probably patronises Acheampong’s services and sees the toils the Ghanaian goes through daily, set out to buy just one of his nuts for GHC 200.00 to cover for his entire day’s sale.
As though that wasn’t enough surprise already, the former footballer followed up his gesture with an invite to the young coconut seller to visit his home before joining him with his celebrity friends and fans at his coconut joint at Adjiringanor on January 24, 2020, to buy and raise money for him.
The footballer’s action which he later poster online, received rave reviews and comments of praise from other celebrities including Stonebwoy and the others some whom have also contributed to the gesture.
Usually, one coconut goes for 2GH Cedis, but for that day we paid
200GH Cedis per coconut. I offered to match the total amount of sales that day.
To his surprise, more and more celebrities kept arriving and a
huge crowd assembled by his stand. @hisense_ghana also joined the party and
made a huge contribution.
At the end of the day, we made the count.
Words cannot describe the feeling, when I saw the emotion on his face as he realized the total amount of money raised that day. I would like to thank everyone that joined me in supporting this man’s business (Virgin Fresh Coconut). We rise by lifting others!‘
