Nima celebrates Mohammed Kudus with a mural
Black Stars midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, has had a mural of him painted on the streets of Nima to celebrate his success story so far.
The mural includes his celebration after scoring one of Ghana’s three goals during the 3-2 win over South Korea at the World Cup.
The painting was done by international graffiti artist, Mohammed Awudu, who believes the player’s rise to stardom is an inspiration to the neighbourhood and young talents in the area.
Present at the unveiling was the former Mayor of Accra, Nii Adjei Sowah, Dr Afua Asabea Asare, the CEO of Ghana Export Promotion, Rabiu Maude, a youth activist as well as kids and other residents in the area.
Kudus grew up in Nima, a suburb of Accra, and started his footballing career there before joining Strong Tower.
The 22-year-old then joined the Right to Dream Academy where he was later developed and transferred to Danish side, FC Nordsjaelland.
In July 2020, Kudus earned a move to Eredivisie side, Ajax Amsterdam, where his performance continues to attract interest from several top clubs.
The attacking midfielder is currently in Qatar with the Black Stars for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He further gained the world’s attention after his brace against South Korea moved Ghana to second position in Group H ahead of the final game against Uruguay on Friday, December 2.
The art is to inspire younger ones in the neighborhood where Kudus grew up.pic.twitter.com/KLirNbghNZ
