African football stars including Samuel Eto’o, Didier Drogba, Daniel Amokachi, Emmanuel Adebayor and Kevin-Prince Boateng have paid tribute to former African leader and South Africa President Nelson Mandela who was born 100 years ago, today.
Mandela died at the age of 95 on December 5, 2013 but the continent’s top stars remember the revolutionary leader whose legacy lives on.
June 2010: “How are you my son? A @fifaworldcup in Africa without you is not World Cup” What could have inspired more than the phone call and these words from Daddy Mandela, the Wisest man I’ve ever met?!?! Happy 100 birthday Madiba ❤️ #gonebutneverforgotten #wiseman Juin2010: « Une @fifaworldcup en Afrique sans toi n’est pas une coupe du Monde » Qu’est-ce qui aurait put m’inspirer plus que ce coup de fil de Papa Mandela, la personne la plus sage que j’eus rencontré ?!?! Joyeux 100eme Anniversaire Madiba❤️
SEA, today we remember a wise man, Nelson Mandela on what would have been his 100th birthday. I am so honoured to have met you in person. I believed in your vision and I still believe in it.
