Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan shares memories of his first love

Asamoah Gyan has shared his own episode of love at first sight after revealing how at 14-years-old he fell in love with his classmate at Seven Great Princes Academy.

The 36-year-old was struck by her beauty and could not resist being without her until her father intervened.

According to Gyan, who was describing the encounter in his book, LeGyandary, stated it was purely love at first sight immediately they crossed paths.

“I continued my education at Seven Great Princes Academy and indeed, it was during my school days, that I met my first love. I was walking to my class. I hit my foot against a stone and almost tripped. When I stabilized I turned to look at the rock when our eyes met. You could say it was love at first sight. The curve of her brows, the glint in her eyes, the smile that drew on her face; I knew she was the one. We locked eyes for what seemed like an eternity till a friend of mine interfered,” he said in excerpts dropped by myjoyonline.

“I later looked for her and we established a rapport immediately. We started talking and after some time we grew very close. She was the light of my world and the excitement of seeing her every day was enough to ginger me get to school. Love was sweet and beautiful with her. We could smile at each other during morning assembly and sometimes I would blow her a kiss when no one was watching. I was fourteen and in love!

In fact, we were so in love and could not keep away from each other. After school, I’d walk her home, then she’d also walk me back to mine. We could go on like that till we grew tired of walking and sit down to chat into the night, without regard for the time. We were young and in love. One of those extended hours led to her Dad giving her a severe beating when she got home late. My heart missed a beat when I saw her with scars on her hands and her back.”
