Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan is BBC’s 2010 African Footballer of the Year

Congratulations to Ghana’s singer and soccer player Asamoah Gyan aka Baby Jet who fans voted as BBC’s 2010 African Footballer of the Year.

The Black Stars striker clinched the title with an overwhelming majority – receiving more than half of the vote.

He finished well ahead of fellow Ghanaian Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew, Ivorians Yaya Toure and Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o of Cameroon.

“I’m so happy, I can’t believe it,” he said. “I’m so thankful to all the fans who voted for me.”

He added: “It was really hard to win this award, especially because of all the other players I was up against.

“So I’m so appreciative to all my fans in Africa – especially my family and fans in Ghana.”
