Stars from Barcelona Memphis Depay and Ousmane Dembele joined forces with Sarkodie, a Ghanaian rapper, singer, and businessman.
During Barcelona’s preseason tour of the United States of America, Depay and Dembele had the opportunity to collaborate with Sarkodie (USA).
Two players with African ancestry who play for one of the top football teams in the world are Depay and Dembele.
The Barcelona stars were photographed in fashionable attire in New York with Sarkodie.
Depay and Dembele Meet Sarkodie
Sarkodie is revered as a legend of African music and is considered as one of the founders of contemporary Ghanaian rap.
Dembele is of African descent because his father is Malian and his mother is Senegalese-Mauritanian.
Depay, however, is more closely related to Sarkodie because his grand father is a native of Ghana.
During his sabbatical, Depay visited Ghana and learned more about his ancestry.
Depay met with the president Nana Akufo-Addo, powerful chiefs, and even street football players while he was in the Gold Coast.
Depay and Dembele both scored as Barcelona defeated the New York Red Bulls in their final preseason match in the United States following the meeting with Sarkodie.
