Former captain of the national football team Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, is one of the several items trending on social media platform Twitter.
This is because the former Legon Cities striker born on November 22, 1985, turned 36 years today.
Users have shared congratulatory messages and thanked ‘Baby Jet’ for his remarkable performance when he led the Black Stars.
They say Gyan is a gem that the nation needs to cherish and laud.
In a tweet, Asamoah Gyan noted how excited he is to celebrate another year.
