Former Ghana International and Arsenal star, Quincy Owusu Abeyie has quit football to become a rapper.

The 33-year-old journeyed through the Arsenal youth ranks into the side before a surprise departure in 2016 after just five appearances.

Having featured for a long list of clubs across Europe, the former Ajax youth player has been at it for some time but under disguise.

This has been the case until he finally released his solo mixtape titled ‘New Chapter’.

Abeyie is quoted by
“Now that I am releasing my first solo mix tape, I want to show the world: this is me. This is what I am doing now.”

He went on to say  “There was no Ronald de Boer type around in our neighborhood who said ‘With football, you have a future’.

“My role models were the money makers of the block. The street men driving around in horrible cars.

“That was then the s*** for me, later I grew older and I made other choices.

“I hope to make the people from the neighborhood proud. First as a footballer and now as an artist.”

Quincy Owusu Abeyie now nicknamed ‘BLOW’ joins a host of footballers who quit football for music; just as former Juventus striker, Dani Osvaldo who quit the sport to do rock music.

Djibril Cisse, Royston Drenthe, Ruud Gullit, Andy Cole remain among a host of footballers who had held the mic.

Despite featuring for the Dutch u17, The quick-feet pacy winger switched nationality to play for Ghana where he scored twice in eighteen appearances.
