Former Black Stars midfielder, Laryea Kingston, has revealed how his 10 year-old son saved him from going bankrupt.
The former Hearts of Oak middleman cited one tearful speech from his son which shocked him and that changed his understanding of life forever. The then dreadlocked winger credited his 10 year old boy as the main adviser who shielded him away from bad friends and extravagant spending spree during his playing career.
“Sometimes I will go out with my friends, spend all the money on me and go back for more in the house,” Kingston said on GH One Football Legends Night Show.
I once put money into three ‘Ghana must Go’ bags and started spending them one by one. I carried the money in my car and spent two of those bags before my ten year old son told me, Daddy why are spending your money like that?
He added: ““I had picked the bag with the money in my car and all of a sudden my son’s statement shook me. I put off the engine and came back to the house and slept, then I realise I had just saved 100 million cedi one night. I was having hundred million to blow away but my son’s advice saved the money”, Laryea Kingston revealed.
