At the Wireless Festival in Abu Dhabi, Ghanaian music star Black Sherif gave a moving performance in honor of the late Christian Atsu.
The singer, who is 21 years old, was one of the performers at the event on March 11th at Etihad Park in Yas Island.
Black Sherif dedicated his performance to the late football player and sang “Songs of Freedom” by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
While he performed, pictures of Atsu and words honoring the late Black Stars winger displayed on the LED screen behind him.
On February 18, 2023, Atsu’s death was officially declared when his lifeless body was discovered following the earthquake in Turkey.
After the terrible earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria in mid-February, there had been days of active search.
Many people have sent their sympathies to the football player’s family and loved ones as tributes have flooded in from near and far.
At the Adjiriganor Astroturf Park, the deceased footballer’s one-week observation took place last week. His funeral is scheduled on March 17.
Victor Osimhen, a Nigerian international, also paid respect to the late Atsu and called him an African brother.
The active Napoli forward went on to express his condolences to all the families of those who lost loved ones in the earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria.
He had already donated his jersey to be sold in favor of a campaign to generate money for the victims of the earth.
“The earthquakes in Turkey? I don’t know how much my jersey was sold for; even my teammates like Bartosz Bereszynski and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia sold their jerseys.
“Eljif Elmas organized this campaign and of course, we supported it. My condolences to those who lost their lives in the earthquakes. I also lost an African brother in these earthquakes, Christian Atsu from Ghana,” Osimhen said, as quoted by Tutto Napoli.
