Board Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, Togbe Afede XIV has made an interesting revelation how he got to support the club.

The revered traditional leader of the Asogli state who is also a very successful businessman has been the helmsman at the club in a little over a decade.

His tenure as the Club’s Majority Shareholder has brought mixed results.

With fans desperate to see the club return to the old glory days, allegations have been labeled against him that perhaps he is not a true Phobian (Fan of the club).

However in an interview with GTV Sports+, Togbe Afede has disclosed that he actually started supporting the 2000 African champions as a boy.

“I developed the love for Hearts of Oak (as a kid), I was born a twin, incidentally my twin brother was a Kotoko fan, and I was a Hearts of Oak fan,” he told GTV Sports+.

“So even as kids, we always argued when Kotoko and Hearts played at home and in our locality. And that interest has persisted all these years,” Togbe Afede concluded.

Togbe Afede is currently the president of the National House of Chiefs. He has revealed before the businessman and the chief we see today became a reality, he used to dazzle on the football pitch as a kid.

“Football is my passion, as a kid I played football, I was a utility player, so I played whenever and wherever there was the need,” he remarked.

“But it’s unfortunate I couldn’t participate actively in playing beyond the early years of secondary school,” he concluded.
