Andre Ayew

The first male child born in Dormaa in the Bono region of Ghana on Friday, June 23, 2023, will be named after Ghana captain Andre Ayew, according to the Dormaahene.

Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II bestowed the honour on Ayew when some Black Stars players paid a courtesy call on him ahead of the 2023 All Star Festival.

He made the announcement at a durbar that was attended by the Dormaa Chief himself that the first male child born at the Dormaa Hospital on Friday, June 23, 2023, will be named after the 33-year-old player.

In addition, the traditional leader stated that he will personally take care of the baby financially until he reaches adulthood.

Jordan Ayew, Ayew’s brother, Wakaso, Felix Afena-Gyan, Mohammed Kudus, and Kamaladeen Sulemana were with Ayew to the durbar.

With 114 appearances, Andre is Ghana’s most-capped player and the captain of the national team since 2019.

With 10 goals in six tournaments, he is also the Black Stars’ highest scorer at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

On the flip side, Jordan Ayew has stated that playing with his brother Andre in the Black Stars is a dream come true, claiming that whenever they play together, they are always happy.

The legendary Abedi Ayew Pele, who won the African Footballer of the Year award three times, is the father of the Ayew brothers.

The Ayew brothers also played for Olympique Marseille, a Ligue 1 team, where, along with their father, they won the supercup and league cup.

The pair reunited in the Premier League at Swansea City, and have played side-by-side for the Ghana national team since 2012.

Jordan told the media at Crystal Palace that he was happy to have played with his older brother at two World Cups and many other AFCON tournaments.

“Every time I play with my brother there is happiness, because we fulfilled our dreams,” the forward said.

“It was painful to leave the tournament, but we did our best and gave everything to present Ghana in the best way possible.”

“I have a big family, I was raised by grandparents, aunties and uncles. They did a really good job. If I’m here today it’s because of them, they played their part. I always say that it’s important for me to remember where I came from, to thank them for their role in bringing me up. I feel blessed,” he added.
