Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has overtaken Manchester City's Yaya Toure

and Samuel Eto'o of Cameroon to become Africa's highest paid

sportsman. The Black Stars captain topped Ivorian midfielder Toure and

Eto'o to become Africa's highest paid sportsman by The Magazine's

Money Issue salary survey project. Gyan will make $16m annual profit

from his salaries, wages and endorsements as well as his private

businesses, breaking even with Tamba Hali who plays for NFL side

Kansas City Chiefs. The UAE-based striker, who earns a tax free salary

in the Arabian country, finishes ahead of Toure who earns US$ 15.4

yearly income from his weekly US$ 322,000 salary at the Etihad club.

Samuel Eto'o was said to be on the salary of $13.3m while Emmanuel

Adebayor is at a distant fourth. Gyan has invested his money in the

food industry with Vits Instant Noodles with other interests in

boxing, music, real estate and education.
