“Lawrence Ati-Zigi is my in-law. He’s married to my sister and he is aware. If he jokes, I will reveal the identity of his wife,” Yaw Dabo told YouTube platform Saddick Adams.

Dabo, a well-known actor in Ghana, has ventured into the world of football by founding the Dabo Football Academy.

This Division Two team, situated in the Ashanti Region, has been making notable strides, and Dabo expresses strong optimism that the team will eventually rise to prominence in Ghanaian football.

His motivation behind establishing the academy goes beyond sports success; Dabo views it as a way of giving back to society and playing a role in discovering and nurturing talent for the benefit of the country.

“I have the Dabo Soccer Academy because we have to support others. That’s my dream because, when you get money, you have to give it to somebody because everybody needs help,” he told Marca.

“Me, too. I need help. My brother needs help. So I want to give back to my society to support others. I go to orphanages and I go to the villages to bring talented players to everybody to see that in Ghana we have very talented players.

“A lot of good players are in the academy and go to school. I have workers, coaches, and caterers to support the football team. I have everybody. I came to Europe to find a solution to support my academy.”

Lawrence Ati-Zigi has assumed the role of the primary goalkeeper for the Black Stars. He ascended to this position in preparation for the 2022 World Cup due to injuries suffered by Jojo Wollacott and Richard Ofori, who were originally the first and second choices, respectively.
