Asamoah Gyan puts music career on suspension

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has announced the suspension of his music

career until his retirement from football.

The Black Stars captain was featured by his good friend, Theophilus

Tagoe aka Castro De Destroyer.

With the moniker, Baby Jet Ewole Monko, Gyan quickly rose to fame with

the release of the hit song 'African Girls' ahead of the 2010 World


The song managed to win the collaboration of the year award at the

Ghana Music Awards and this intrinsically motivated the footballer who

has a passion for music to do another collaboration with Castro-'Do

the Dance'.

But the Al Ain ace says he is taking temporal retirement from music

career after his friend Castro went missing last July.

"Sometimes at my leisure time I try to write something," he told


"I've got passion for it also despite what happened to our friend [Castro].

"I felt like I have to just stay out a bit maybe until the end of my

career and after football try to do something with my music.

"I was very down when it [Castro's disappearance] happened so I just

try to stay out.

"He is the only one I said to myself if I had to do any collaboration,

it had to be just Catsro.

"So now that Castro is not around I don't think there is the need to do it.

"But I might do something after my career."

Gyan says he will instead be looking to invest in unearthing some

budding musical talents in Ghana.

"I am just thinking to support some artiste, to support them but I

have not yet decided who exactly to help," he added. My relationship

with Castro was great, we were like brothers. So when I decide to help

any artiste it is never going to be like what me and Castro were –

talking about our relationship.

"It is just to help the artiste."

Gyan is currently with the Ghana national team in Spain preparing for

the upcoming 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
