Yesterday by this time, social media was filled with touching tributes from Junior Agogo’s friends, former teammates, former clubs and fans.
He had passed away in London after battling stroke for years.
While people were celebrating Junior Agogo for living 40 extraordinary years on earth, others were also unfazed with the touching tributes because of the seeming hypocrisy of the same people Junior Agogo accused that they have abandoned him.
To them, when he needed help during his time with stroke, his Black Stars teammates and even the Ghana Football Association shunned him.
Junior Agogo himself once addressed this issue in an interview years ago.
With such sentiment, the award-winning Gospel musician Sonnie Badu took to his Instagram to call out the same football stars who shunned Junior Agogo but are sending touching tributes after he passed.
“You cried for help and when [the] stroke hit, you wept on tv and said none of your teammates or GFA had come to see you. If only they had shown you this love when you needed it perhaps you would have held on,” Sonnie Badu said.

My brother you are trending. Ghana is talking about you. You cried for help and when stroke hit, you wept on tv and said none of your team mates or GFA had come to see you. If only they had shown you this love when you needed it perhaps you would have held on. I will say this again! Ghana must learn how to celebrate their heros. May God bless our homeland! Rest well #JnrAgogo
We hope Junior Agogo rests in peace.
