“It was nothing personal, I just wanted to create the vibe and everyone got the vibe; If I had mentioned his name right away, we would have lost the feel we got that night so I saved it for the last and created that atmosphere”.

He explained: “It is very trivial for Ghanaians to think that was to spark up more controversies between us; if I say a brother from another mother how warm is that not?”
