Every individual who rose to the top has an interesting story of their humble beginnings.
Mohammed Kudus who just joined Ajax, also has an interesting story of where he grew up and his journey to joining one of the most successful football clubs in Europe.
Kudus grew up in Nima, a community in Accra. He is very proud of Nima and he showed that when he was unveiled by Ajax on July 16, 2020.
He wore a shirt that had the inscription: “Nima Native”.
Indicating how proud he is of Nima, the 19-year-old stated: “Nima my Tap Root and DNA”.
Aside from the impact that Nima had on him, there’s one person who played a bigger role in Kudus’ life – his mother.
Kudus has so much love for his mother and he shared a video to celebrate her.
The video consists of photos and clips of memorable moments that he had with her and some family members. The video was accompanied by Shatta Wale’s Mama Stories.
The video also showed some parts of Nima, including the Nima market where his mom used to sell.
