Ghanaian rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong, popularly known as Medikal, has chosen Asamoah Gyan as his favorite player of all time.

Medikal said this during an interview on the Starr Chat Show with Bola Ray on Accra-based Starr FM on Thursday, May 23, 2024.

The award-winning rapper noted that he rates Gyan very highly, saying: “Asamoah Gyan is my favorite player of all time.”

Gyan is currently Ghana’s record scorer with 51 goals and also the country’s second most-capped player of all time behind only Andre Ayew.

The 38-year-old recently took a bold step into politics when he was announced as part of the governing NPP’s campaign team ahead of the 2024 elections.

In February, the former Sunderland striker was named as chair of the party’s sub-committee on Youth and Sports under Vice President Dr. Bawumia, who also is the flagbearer of the NPP.

Meanwhile, Gyan recently revealed that he’d have become a lawyer or musician if he didn’t end up as a footballer.

The retired footballer has gone on to accomplish the latter, having released some hit songs with his now-missing friend Castro in the early 2010s.

However, he believes he could’ve been a great lawyer too, explaining that he’s very good at winning arguments.

Speaking to 3FM, Ghana’s all-time top scorer was asked which profession he’d have ventured into if he hadn’t become a footballer.

Gyan answered: “A musician or a lawyer because you never win against me when it comes to arguments. You never win. I always find a way to win.”

Asked if he would consider going to law school, Gyan added: “Maybe. Never say never. Now we’re focusing on the All-Regional Games and we want to change the sports fraternity, we want the other generation to benefit from it.”

Gyan officially announced his retirement in June last year following a career that spanned over two decades.
