Mr. Abraham, Christian Atsu’s senior Brother, has stated that the children of Christian Atsu will be given local names so that they can be identified as Ghanaians and members of the Twasam family wherever they go.
He made these remarks during an interview with Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV on YouTube, who was at the late Ghanaian player’s family home to cover events taking place there.
According to the Senior Brother, the local names given to Atsu’s children will serve as a reminder for the children to remember their roots and know where they come from, as tradition requires.
He also revealed in the interview that the family has instructed the beloved’s wife on when to visit Ghana. He stated that the family thought it was appropriate to allow Marie Claire-Rupio and her children to come to Ghana to bid farewell to her partner during the funeral.
“We have asked her to relax and join us with the kids when it is time for the funeral”
He, however, added the wife of his late brother is always in touch with them wanting to know how things are going.
As revealed by the brother according to Marie, their daughter who is their last child has been crying ever since she heard the news about her father’s demise.
“For Atsu’s wife we are always in touch with her, she calls every morning to find out how things are going”
