One of Ghana’s athletes at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Nadia Eke is actually a Nigerian who ditched Nigeria for Ghana.
She will be competing in the triple jump event at the Olympics. Many people have been wondering why she ditched Nigeria over Ghana, however, bear in mind, she was born to a Nigerian father and a Ghanaian mother.
On her reason why she chose Ghana over Nigeria, she indicated that Ghana makes her feel very original.
She graduated from the prestigious Columbia University and in an interview with the BBC, she said;
“I chose to compete for Ghana in 2014 because being Ghanaian is my blood. It’s authentically who I am and so for me to be selected as the flagbearer was a testament to all of the things that I’ve been through, everything thing that I stand for at that moment, to be that person that is representing Ghana.
I am Nigerian and I’m Ghanaian and so if anyone has the best answer is me. “My mother is Ghanaian and my father is Nigerian. I asked my father this myself. ‘I said which country has the best jollof? And he said; “I ended up marrying a Ghanaian woman. So it goes without saying Ghanaian jollof.”

My Action Was Ugly Against Crystal Palace – Nunez
Liverpool striker, Darwin Nunez has broken the silence after he was sent off in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Monday.
The Uruguayan apologised for his headbutt on Crystal Palace defender, Joachim Andersen.

Liverpool still managed to draw the game after Luis Diaz cancelled out Wilfried Zaha’s opener.
“I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I’m here to learn from my mistakes and it won’t happen again,” Nunez tweeted.
