Emmanuel Adebayor, has stated that he does whatever he like with his money, and won’t be coerced into donating, despite the rising cases of coronavirus in Togo.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, many sports stars and celebs have been donating to ease the pains of people in this trying time.
Adebayor, regarded as one of Africa’s richest footballers with a choice collection of cars and mansions in Africa and Europe, says he won’t be joining his African compatriots like Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba in donating cash or relief materials to his home nation. He said;
‘For those of you who say I don’t donate, let me be very clear, I don’t donate. It is very simple,’
‘I do what I want and eat what I want. Later, there will be people who will criticise me for the fact that I did not make a donation in Lome (capital of Togo).’
‘Some think that I was the one who introduced the virus in Lome. It is very unfortunate, but this country is like that.’
“I’m sorry that people compare me to Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba by asking me why I don’t have a foundation or why I don’t donate, as if I was the one who brought the coronavirus to Togo.
“I am neither the one nor the other, I am me, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor and I will always do what I want. A word of advice for the guys regarding donations, I will not do that. Everything is clear and very simple. Thank you and good day.”
