Aisha Modi who is also hurt by the footballer's death has decided to detail why she hasn't been able to give Christian Atsu his flowers when he was alive. Aisha Modi took to social media to pour out her feelings.

"Too much pains. There is one lesson, though bitter, that I have learnt from this painful Christian Atsu death," she wrote.

Revealing why she couldn't celebrate Atsu whilst he was alive, she said that "to those of us in the media, we dared celebrate him while he was alive. The simple commentary that would come from some of our colleagues and social media activists will be that he has bribed us or we are doing that because we want money or favour or recognition from him.

"Atsu was good but u if u praised during his lively days and will be tagged a Self put put , Now he is gone and everyone is praising him. How does he appreciate and even feel good about the good things he did now that he’s gone? We could have done it for him while he was alive," Miss Modi said.

In a post shared on her Instagram page, she continued that "there are many many players of his kind who do even more than what Atsu did, some like our great star and legend @asamoah_gyan3 etc etc etc yet, most people are unable to praise them because of the fear of being tagged, mocked n called names.

I pledge to start praising people for the good they do no matter what people will say from today. This is a lesson we must all learn".

"Good people deserve to be praised while alive but maybe There is a very good reason why Ghanaian culture frowns upon praising a good person when he is alive. Our ancestors realized that often when a black man is praised alive, he tends to relax and don't get better so it's better to hold till he or accomplishes much more but if he dies in the process, he is given all the praise and a descent barrier. Long live our heroes dead and alive. Rest well young legend / SUPERSTAR," she concluded.
