Peter Okoye has spoken out in support of Emannuel Adebayor over his recent outburst about his family.
Adebayor, who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs FC in England, had earlier took to Facebook to recount a tale of family ingratitude, abuse, malice and threats to his life.
The move has drawn a barrage of responses, both sympathetic and derogatory. Peter Okoye, one half of Africa’s most successful pop group Psquare, has shown support to the Togolese striker.
Peter empathised with Adebayor, thanking the footballer for the bravery shown in sharing the story, while also empathising with the pressures on him as a successful African man.
Peter took to Instagram with a photo collage which shows him and Adebayor. The photo was posted with the caption: "@e_adebayor thank you for sharing your story bro, that was very brave. Indeed as Africans,the pressure is always on the most successful in the family and it hurts when your efforts are not appreciated and belittled. Truth is, you owe no one. Your family should be proud of you and not condemn you. I'm so proud of you bro.Remain blessed"
