"I used to walk to church but I was in church last Sunday, he called me in front, handed over the keys to me and I broke down in tears,” he recounted in an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM.
"It still feels like a dream. I came into contact with him (Prophet Badu) during the 50th anniversary celebration of Ghana’s 1965 AFCON triumph and he has received me like a father ever since."
