D-Black Reacts To Ghana’s Early Exit From AFCON 2021; Joins Petition To Have Asamoah Gyan Play For Black Stars Again
Ghanaian rapper D-Black has reacted to the Black Stars early exit from the ongoing 2021 African cup of nations in Cameroon.
The West African powerhouse eliminated from the tournament at group stages after getting only a point from their 3 games in group c.
They lost their opening game by 1-0 to Morocco, draw 1-1 to Gabon, and lost 3-2 to Comoros.
This is the Comoros first time qualifying to the AFCON, and they lost their 2 group games against Morocco and Gabon without scoring a goal, but ended up disgracing Ghana 3-2 in the last match.
And this was the first time the four times African champions have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win, and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
After the Black Stars abysmal performance, a group of Ghanaians has launched a petition to have the former Black Stars captain play for the National team one more time.
Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, known by his stage name D-Black, also reacted sadly to Ghana’s defeat by joining the petition to have Asamoah Gyan lead the National team one more time before he finally retires from football.
“Pls share and sign this petition for Asamoah Gyan back to lead the BlackStars Team one last time. Thank you,” he wrote on Twitter after sharing a link to the petition.

Meanwhile, Asamoah Gyan has disclosed that he has not retired from football yet and even has more to offer the national team as the Black Stars are struggling to get his better replacement.
Speaking in an interview on SuperSports on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, Asamaoh Gyan disclosed that he has not retired from football yet, as he declared his readiness to play for the Ghana national team.
“I haven’t retired yet. If I need to play I have to shed some weight and be active before and train week in week out, and I will be good to go,” he said.
“Body wise I still feel young at heart, I still goat a lot to offer. The mind is there, everything is alright, but physically, I don’t think I’m ready for now. I need to work on my body,” the former Black Stars captain added.
